AMD is headed to E3 2019 for a special #NextHorizonGaming event, and we want to invite our entire Red Team community to participate! On Monday June 10th at 3PM Pacific Time, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su will be taking the stage to talk about how our upcoming products will change the face of PC, console, and cloud gaming for years to come.

 

Hosted by The Game Awards creator Geoff Keighley and featuring details about all the gaming innovation you can expect from AMD in 2019 and beyond, this is a presentation you don’t want to miss.

 

As such, we have plenty of ways for you to watch and get it on the excitement! Whether you’re in the LA area or watching from home, it’s important to us that everyone be a part of this momentous occasion.

Thanks for reading, everyone. We can’t wait to see you at #NextHorizonGaming!

Howdy Red Team!

 

We’re spending 2019 celebrating AMD’s 50th Anniversary, and we wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of the fun we’ve already had this year as a community. From our 50th Anniversary VLAN last Saturday and the launch of the #AMD50 Stories contest to a special surprise you’ll find out about below, there are a lot of exciting things happening (and only more to come)!

 

AMD 50th Anniversary VLAN

 

 

On May 4th, our AMD Stream Team joined forces with all of you to host a day of games, fun, and giveaways. We can’t thank you enough for coming out to join in on the celebration, and what a celebration it was! All in all, we had about 2,600 of you hanging out in Twitch and Discord playing some of your favorite games and vying for a chance to win some awesome prizes.

 

 

We gave away four massive hardware bundles with 50th Anniversary products as well as copies of World War Z to our lucky winners, and we’re already looking forward to playing with you all again soon. In the meantime, our Stream Team is live every day, and they’re always happy to have you hanging out and chatting on our Twitch channel.

 

#AMD50 Stories

 

Another way we’ve been getting the community involved in the anniversary fun is through the #AMD50 Stories contest, where you have the opportunity to highlight some of your favorite AMD memories from over the years.

 

We’re still accepting entries until May 17th, but we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of our favorites so far:

 

 

w00t Doc and his friends enjoying the launch of Athlon 64. Nothing beats a launch event where you walk away with prizes!

 

 

Spending quality time with dad and hoping that everything went right with your first build!

 

 

Giddily returning home with your brand-new video card ready to enter a new age of gaming.

 

 

And, of course, meeting the love of your life and landing your dream job.

 

There are plenty more stories where that came from, and we want to hear yours too! Visit our posts on the Ryzen and Radeon Twitter pages to submit your favorite AMD memory for a chance to win some sweet 50th Anniversary hardware. We'll be selecting the winners randomly, and you can find the full rules here.

 

Last but not least... we're getting a fresh new look!

 

Many of you have been with us for years, and you've seen our style change over time. With it being AMD's 50th Anniversary, we're celebrating the past but also looking forward to the future. Without further ado, here's the new logo for all things Red Team:

 

 

As we look to continually grow the Red Team and establish ourselves as the very best gaming community to be part of, we want to make sure our style grows with it. This new logo is modern and refreshing while still maintaining the sleek, angular look we've come to know and love from our past branding. 

 

We're so excited to start the next chapter on our community's journey, and this is just the beginning. Be on the lookout for changes that will take place on Twitch, our website, and right here on the forums. Over the next few months we'll be updating our online presence with our new look as well as offering you a variety of new content to explore. 

  

Thanks to each and every one of you for making the AMD Red Team the amazing community that it is. We look forward to making it even better, and we're thrilled to have you all be an integral part of that process.

 

Everyone loves celebrating a birthday, and that’s why we’ve decided to hold an AMD 50th Anniversary VLAN Party! That’s right – we’re getting together to play some games and blow the candles out with our entire community, and you’re invited!

 

On May 4th from 11AM CT/5PM GMT to 7PM CT/1AM GMT, we’ll be on the AMD Twitch channel and the Red Team Discord hanging out and playing games with your favorite streamers.

Hello, Red Team!

Posted by gfroniewski Employee Feb 19, 2019

Hey everyone,

 

My name’s Gary, and I’m your newest AMD and Red Team Community Manager! I’ve already had the chance to talk to a few of you, and I’m excited to get to know even more.

 

 

About me:

 

It might come as no surprise to y’all that I mainly spend my free time playing video games, but I also love to hike, explore new restaurants and bars all over Austin, and also go see live music as much as possible. I graduated from UT with a communications degree with the idea that I would work in social media (preferably in video games), so here I am. :)

 

Gaming:

 

I’ve been gaming for as long as I can remember, going back to NES when I was a wee lad. I play most of the major releases with particular interest in online shooters and action RPGs. When a hot, new single player title isn’t fresh off the presses, you can find me playing everything from Apex Legends and Blackout to Overwatch and Rainbow Six: Siege.

 

Industry work:

 

This is my first job in the games industry, but I’ve been working in social media for nearly half a decade now. I started off as a community manager serving companies of all kinds – everything from restaurants, bars, and BNBs to dentists, mechanics, and comic shops – and I’m both excited and hugely proud to now be working with AMD. It’s a dream of mine to infuse my passion with my profession, and I feel lucky to get the opportunity to accomplish that here.

 

Contact me:

 

You can find me on the Red Team Discord as gary_games. Feel free to reach out to me if you want to say hi or discuss anything AMD related! You can also find me on Twitter @gary_froniewski if you want to talk about anything else, but it is a personal account that doesn’t represent AMD in any way, so please be aware of that when you visit.

 

*Bonus picture of my derpy cat, Albus, included*

 

Happy (almost) New Year, Red Team!

 

From celebrating Ryzen’s one-year anniversary and launching a refreshed Red Team program, to community meet ups at PAX, TwitchCon and more, it’s been a packed and amazing year for AMD and our community. To celebrate, we’re counting down the five best moments of 2018.

 

#5: Community Meet Ups!

PAX, E3, CNE Gaming Garage and more, we were there and so were you—loud and proud. This year we put our stamp on gaming conventions all over the world. You showed us how pumped you were to get hands on experience with AMD products at Tokyo Game Show, China Joy, DreamHack and TwitchCon. While there, we hosted memorable Red Team meet ups with swag, giveaways, photobooths and social media contests: and we’re looking forward too many more in 2019!

#4: 12 Days of Streaming

To show our appreciation to our passionate community we kicked off a special event. Just in time for the holidays, we launched a special 12 Days of Streaming Twitch event. Alongside our special guests hosts NaomiKyle, iAmLucyMae, PancakePowTV and Kiings, we streamed for 12 days straight playing your favorite games, chatting about our products and giving away a few, too! We gave away processors, graphics cards, laptops and desktops to 12 lucky winners to enjoy!

#3: The new AMD Red Team

The AMD community leveled up in June when we rolled out new updates to the Red Team. We’ve expanded the Red Team banner to include 4 new teams to spotlight all of your skills, interests, and excitement for everything AMD. These new teams include: Streamers, Reviewers, Students, and the Street Team.

 

Whether you’re a fan-favorite streaming personality or a PC hardware guru, we’d love to have you play an integral role in our community in 2019 and beyond. If you bleed AMD Red and want to learn more about the Red Team programs, watch our community video and consider applying here.

#2: VLANs on VLANs on Super VLANs

We can’t complete this year’s highlights without remembering the VLANs we hosted in 2018. This year we held 3 VLANs with you all: the Superfan VLAN, the 2nd Gen Ryzen VLAN, and the AMD VLAN featuring MicroCenter. One of our favorites was the 12-Hour Superfan VLAN where so many of you showed up, gamed hard, and won Ryzen and Radeon powered PCs.

 

Hosting VLANs gives us the chance to introduce new faces and personalities to the stream, try out new games, and interact with the Red Team community. And then we throw in tons of prizes for fun!

#1: Ryzen’s 1st Birthday

And number one on the list? It’s only fitting that celebrating the one-year anniversary of Ryzen tops our year in review. The outpouring of support, excitement, and passion you showed with Ryzen coming into the market was nothing short of exceptional! We went big with Ryzen’s Birthday. Between VLANs, giveaways, an epic event at SXSW, and of course – Ryzen birthday cupcakes, this was the cherry on top of a great 2018 with our community.

Honorable Mention

Of course, when we talk about all the exciting community activities we took part in over 2018, we can’t forget about all the giveaways. Between VLANs, contests, and events, we created a ton of opportunities to win some awesome AMD hardware. Over the entire year, we gave away over $62K worth of prizes! Be sure to follow all our social channels in 2019 for more chances to win.

 

Thanks to each and every one of you for making 2018 a great year for AMD. We’re looking forward to what’s next in 2019, and we couldn’t do it without our devoted Red Team community. Here’s to a fantastic New Year together!

 

To keep up with what’s going on in the Red Team community in 2019, follow us Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Twitch!

AMD #RyzenAND Sweepstakes

Posted by thepancake Employee Nov 9, 2018

Day 1 - Contest Announcement.gif

 

Would you pay a lot more for a pizza that’s only a little bigger? We certainly hope not. So why would you overpay for your CPU?

 

Unlike the other guys, we want to make sure you get the absolute best price per performance possible; and with Ryzen, you get incredible, award winning performance that’s readily available. To show how dedicated we are to making sure you enjoy that price to performance savings, we’re giving you a chance to win a Ryzen prize pack of your choice!

 

From Nov 9 through Nov 17, we want you to tell us what you’d buy using the money saved going with Ryzen over the competition. A new motherboard? Faster RAM? Extra money to enjoy this holiday season? Don’t just get a CPU. Get Ryzen AND more!

 

We’ll pick one winner each day from everyone who tweets to @AMDRyzen with hashtags #RyzenAND and #SweepstakesEntry. Each winner will receive a Ryzen 7 2700X AND their choice* from a long list of prize options. See the full contest rules for complete details.

AMD Red Team Update

Posted by erin.maiorino Employee Jun 21, 2018

Welcome to the new and improved AMD Red Team!

 

AMD Red Team is a community for AMD product owners and fans of the brand. It’s a community to collaborate with, to show off your expertise, and most importantly, to make new friends! Whether you’re into exceptional PC builds, 3D design, or competitive gaming, AMD has the products to help you out and we want to keep you connected with others like you.

 

Looking to join? Head on over to the AMD Red Team newsletter form to sign up onto the team! Keep connected with the rest of the crew on our community forums, on the AMD Red Team Discord server, or with #AMDRedTeam on Twitter. After joining, you can show off your Red Team love with wallpapers from our Digital Fan Kit or just by strutting your stuff in one of our Red Team t-shirts you can get from our community meetups.

 

As for the new and improved part, we’re adding four new teams under the Red Team banner to provide spotlights to all of your skills, interests, and excitement for everything AMD. These teams are exciting opportunities for those who really want to get involved with AMD and Red Team with their own skills and excitement:

 

The AMD Red Team Streamers

Are you a fan-favorite streaming personality? Are you just as much of a competitive pro as you are PC hardware guru? The new Red Team Streamers group is for you! The Red Team Streamers will have the chance to stream on the official AMD Twitch channel and be a part of the official streaming schedule. Red Team Streamers will also have the opportunity to power their own channel with AMD equipment!

 

We’re aiming to have strong, ongoing relationships with the Red Team Streamers. Having a million subscribers is not necessary to join the team, but a certain level of professionalism and consistency in content quality will be important for those of you looking to join.

 

The AMD Red Team Reviewers

Do you make beautiful unboxing videos? Are you a PC build-log superstar? Do you have an awesome benchmarking setup and enjoy showing off some of the coolest data on this side of the web? The Red Team Reviewers will be made up of talented, excited, and knowledgeable people to review and share AMD products to their audiences.

 

Red Team Reviewers will create content for video platforms like YouTube and Vimeo as well as blog formats that could make it onto the official Red Team blog! To help make sure you’re only covering what you’re interested in covering, being a Red Team Reviewer is a per-product, per-review basis. This means that new reviews will need new applications, whether you’ve been a Red Team Reviewer before or not. Per-review applications will also help us keep all the details in order, so we can make sure that you’re getting the support you need for a successful review.

 

The AMD Red Team Street Team

Our Street Team may feel a bit more familiar. The Street Team is made up of the most involved and enthusiastic of the Red Team community. This team keeps involved with all of the Red Team events: our official VLANs, getting together at local outings, and meeting with AMD at our favorite trade shows. Members of the Street Team will be helping out with these events and promoting what AMD is up to via their own social channels and community efforts. This team will be comprised of the names you recognize, respect, and rely on to keep up to date with the biggest things going on with AMD and the Red Team!

 

Similar to the Red Team Reviewers, the Street Team will be on a per-event basis. This means that if you’re only available to join us at a convention near your home or if you’re only into getting the VLANs together, you won’t feel pressured into being on every single thing that’s going on if you don’t want to be.

 

The AMD Red Team Students

For the unique experiences found on college and university campuses worldwide, we’re fleshing out Red Team Students to give student communities their own spotlight. Are you studying 3D design and can’t get enough of our professional hardware? Do you have a knack for technical writing and love to show off the fine details of the tech world? Do you have a killer case mod with AMD hardware to show off at your gaming club’s LAN parties? We want to be a part of your passion that’s taking you through the rigors of higher education!

 

AMD Red Team Students will be an empowered student ambassador program. This team is passionate about how AMD’s products and brand fit into their work and play. The goal is to reach new students, excite others about AMD products, and manage the brand on a collegiate level. Whether it’s YouTube videos or meetups, we want you to do what gets your campus and classmates excited for AMD and the Red Team!

 

If any of the new teams sound like they might be for you, head over to the main Red Team Page and apply!

 

For our Red Team veterans: Thank you for being a part of the growing AMD community. Growth often means change, and we’re excited for these updates coming to the Red Team community taking place over the next few months. We believe these changes will make for a stronger Red Team and AMD community as a whole!

 

We’ve officially closed all applications for Red Team Plus. Red Team Plus has been an important and valued part of AMD and we’re excited to transform the program to new, focused teams that better highlight your individual skills and interests. Red Team Plus members have been transitioned into a new Alum group specifically for the previous members of RTP. We will continue to collaborate with Red Team Alum on supporting the new expanded community.

 

We’re excited to continue to make the Red Team an even more amazing community than it already is. By introducing the new teams, we're aiming to strengthen community involvement and better highlight the passions and skills of those who bleed Red!

 

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out in our AMD Red Team Community Forum if you have any questions or concerns about these upcoming changes.

Hello Red Team!

 

I’m Sean “The Pancake” Clanton, and I’m a new AMD and Red Team Community Manager!

 

About me:

I play video games, disc golf, have worked for a few different game studios, watch a lot of anime and sci-fi, read a great deal of fantasy novels, and love horror movies. I’m a bit of a metalhead and have been known to be found in a mosh pit, but I’m also a total geek and love all things Star Wars, Star Trek, LotR, Doctor Who, etc., I’ve also been told I have waaaay too many Funko figures (is that even possible?). Oh, and in my spare time I like to tinker with making craft beer.

 

Gaming:

I’ve been a video game junkie for most of my life. Saved up all my birthday money when I was 6 to buy my first console, and been gaming ever since. I mostly play MMORPGs and ARPGs, but will give anything a go. I’ve been a PC gamer since Ultima Online and was an original beta tester for WoW. I now mostly play Final Fantasy XIV and Diablo 3, and I’m doing my best to wait for Monster Hunter to release on PC. I’ve been building PCs since vanilla WoW, and have hosted quite a few Diablo 2 and Quake LAN parties back in the day.

 

Industry work:

I’ve worked in the PC/Gaming industry for quite some time. After an initial stint in the marketing agency world working for the likes of Hyatt and Hilton Hotels, I transitioned over to video games. I earned my first gaming stripes at Red 5 Studios leading all the social efforts for Firefall from closed beta all the way to its unfortunate demise. After that, I moved over to Carbine Studios handling social for WildStar where I managed all social media operations, as well as a lot of behind-the-scenes work with livestreamers and YouTubers. Most recently, I was the social media manger for NCSOFT working on Blade & Soul, Aion, Lineage 2, and Master X Master (RIP). I’ve handled everything from livestreams, to customer care, to social media operations, to event management.

 

Contact me:

You can always find me on the Red Team Discord as ThePancake. Feel free to reach out to me anytime for your AMD-related needs or if you just want to send me pics of your doggos. You can also find me on Twitter a lot, but don’t expect much AMD talk there. It’s for my personal amusement and doesn’t represent AMD in any way, so please respect that if you decide to give me a follow.

 

That’s me, and I’m excited to get to know all of you!

 

Sean “The Pancake” Clanton

 

PS: I just got a dog, so here’s an obligatory photo.

AMD’s Ruby Marks Her Return with Quake Champions

by Annie Lee

 

Guess who’s back?

 

QCRuby-SocialBanners-1200x630_V1A.png

 

AMD’s iconic Ruby returns! Years after being dormant from her adventures, Ruby is making her appearance once more in the public eye—this time, as a skin for Nyx in Bethesda’s highly-anticipated arena shooter Quake Champions.

 

Nyx Becomes Ruby in Quake Champions

 

Our beloved Ruby takes after the fashion of Nyx, the playable assassin in the fast-paced arena shooter. With her abilities like “Ghost Walk” and a stealthy approach to fragging players, Ruby/Nyx is going to be one delightful character to speed around with.

 

Are you eager to play as AMD’s treasured hero in this fast-paced arena? Here’s how you can unlock her skin for Nyx:

  • Purchase a Radeon™ RX 580, 570 or 560 from participating retailers, or
  • Purchase a powerful Ryzen™ 5 or Ryzen™ 7 processor from participating retailers
  • To get a code for a “Champions Pack” for Quake Champions

 

RyzenQC_SocialBnr_1200x630.jpg 1711537-B_RX500_QC-SocialBanners-1920x1080.jpg

 

Quake Champions is a free-to-play title, but permanent access to specific champions and skins can only be gained through in-game purchase, or by receiving the Quake Champions Pack with the qualifying Radeon and Ryzen products listed above. The Champions Pack will contain all current and future champions, including with the additional Ranger skin and Ruby skin for Nyx. Once you get the Champions Pack, these champions will be in your arsenal forever! The bundle is available now—find out where and how you can get it here.

 

The Return of Ruby Contest

But that’s not all. To celebrate Ruby’s return, we’re also giving away a Radeon RX 570 in the “Return of Ruby” Twitter contest.

 

It’s easy:

 

Yup, that’s it. Imagine that—all you have to do is retweet and you may win a Radeon RX 500 Series graphics card. Check the T&Cs for full details!

 

So—are you ready to enter the arena? Get the Quake Champions Bundle now!
