Professional gamers know that enjoying the best possible experience requires four things: Superior performance, high resolutions, smooth frame rates, and dazzling image quality. This demands a synergistic setup that delivers more than the sum of its PC parts.
The right blend of components can open the door to unforgettable gaming experiences for pro and enthusiast gamers alike. And since we expect Radeon RX Vega GPUs to be in extremely high demand, we wanted to do something special for our dedicated community of gamers – especially those in need of upgrades across their entire ecosystem.
At SIGGRAPH, we announced three Radeon Packs — featuring Radeon RX Vega graphics cards — that supply the perfect path to maximizing your gaming experience. Each pack includes the following:
- Radeon™ RX Vega64 or Radeon™ RX Vega56 — the world’s most advanced, forward-looking GPUs*
- A steep discount on Samsung’s stunning CF791-Series 1440p Curved Ultrawide FreeSync™ monitor for smooth, tear-free gaming*
- An exclusive discount on select groundbreaking Ryzen™ 7 CPU + AM4 motherboard combos*
- Copies of both Wolfenstein® II: The New Colossus™ and Prey®*.
These special offers are highlighted by the Radeon RX Vega 64, the most advanced GPU in the world, with redesigned geometry and pixel engines, and revolutionary features like our High Bandwidth Cache Controller and Rapid Packed Math.
Radeon RX Vega 64: Premium Performance, Premium Industrial Design
Radeon RX Vega 64 was architected for the incoming wave of visually and computationally demanding titles like FarCry 5. The Radeon RX Vega 64 also utilizes technology that experts insisted would never be within a gamer’s reach. Stuff like second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, plucked from industrial graphics solutions that cost several thousand dollars.
Equally impressive is the proud sense of ownership you’ll feel when you hold Radeon RX Vega 64 in your hands. Designed by a team of world renowned industrial designers, the iconic shroud in our limited edition version features solid metal construction with a premium 240 grit brushed finish. Then it’s burnished with an eye-catching symbol of refined gaming: an illuminated pixel.
PC Gaming: It All Starts with the Glass
But we didn’t stop there, because we want you to have the smoothest experience possible. Exceptional PC gaming starts with the glass, so we’re offering Radeon RX Vega 64 buyers $200 off Samsung’s jaw-dropping, 34” Curved Ultrawide FreeSync monitor.*
During informal blind experience testing with a FreeSync-capable monitor and Radeon RX Vega 64, the majority of gamers chose it over similarly priced and similarly performant hardware ecosystems (Nvidia G-Sync with GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti).
AMD Ryzen 7: Shatter Performance Barriers for Less Cash
It’s been years since the world has seen a truly new CPU architecture. AMD Ryzen was built for advanced multithreaded applications and the most demanding resolutions, delivering blistering performance at extremely competitive prices. We’re offering select Ryzen 7 processors + X370 motherboard combos as part of the Radeon Packs — at an exclusive $100 discount.
Two of 2017’s Best Games: On the House
Once you have the ultimate gaming setup, you need the ultimate games to enjoy the experience. Our friends at Bethesda Softworks are sweetening the deal with copies of Wolfenstein® II: The New Colossus™ and Prey®*, two of the most highly anticipated games this year. Our engineers have spent thousands of hours working with developers to deliver the most optimized gaming experience with the Radeon RX Vega64 ecosystem.
Not all gamers are alike. Some of you have already have a stunning FreeSync monitor or a high-end CPU, so we’re offering three Radeon RX Vega Radeon Packs to ensure you get an experience tailored for your individual needs:
Radeon Red Pack: $499 USD
Radeon RX Vega56 Air Cooled edition + $200 discount on Samsung XX FreeSync monitor + Wolfenstein® II: The New Colossus™ and Prey® ($120 value) + $100 discount on Ryzen 7 1800x processor + x370 motherboard combo*
Radeon Black Pack: $599 USD
Radeon RX Vega64 Air Cooled edition (Black shroud or Limited Edition Silver shroud) + $200 discount on Samsung XX FreeSync monitor + Wolfenstein® II: The New Colossus™ and Prey® ($120 value) + $100 discount on Ryzen 7 1800x processor + x370 motherboard combo*
Radeon Aqua Pack: $699
Radeon RX Vega64 (Liquid Cooled edition) + $200 discount on Samsung XX FreeSync monitor + Wolfenstein® II: The New Colossus™ and Prey® ($120 value) + $100 discount on Ryzen 7 1800x processor + x370 motherboard combo*
If you’re already a proud AMD Ryzen or Radeon FreeSync monitor owner, you can buy a Radeon RX Vega56 or Radeon RX Vega64 air cooled edition at standalone prices of $399 and $499 SEP USD respectively.
