Red Team Rewind: November 2019

Blog Post created by gfroniewski Employee on Nov 13, 2019


Introduction

 

October is out and November is in, and that means another month of happenings in the world of gaming and the AMD Red Team. Between The Outer Worlds taking us to new horizons, the release of the first gaming laptop to use AMD’s 7nm technology, and the holiday spirit kicking down our collective doors, we couldn’t be more amped for what’s to come!

The Outer Worlds hit stores on October 25th, and the reception thus far has been nothing short of amazing. Obsidian’s latest hearkens back to many of our favorite RPGs of old – with memorable characters and dialog, beautiful locales to explore, and plenty of decisions that change the course of your adventure.

 

AMD partnered with Obsidian to deliver gameplay designed to take full advantage of the power of AMD Ryzen processors, and it’s turned out to be an experience that’s truly spectacular. If you haven’t had a chance to try The Outer Worlds yet, you might like to know that you can get a copy FREE with the purchase of select Ryzen CPUs. The game is also available on Xbox Game Pass for PC to try as well!

 

MSI Alpha 15

October also marked the release of MSI’s Alpha 15 laptop. The first gaming laptop to utilize 7nm technology is powered by Radeon RX 5500M and Ryzen 7 3750H, sporting up to a 144hz FreeSync display for ultra-fast, buttery smooth gameplay. 

 

We couldn’t be more excited for this bad boy to be introduced to the world, and we hope you all are too. If you’re looking for no-compromise gaming on the go, the MSI Alpha may just be the laptop for you. Not to mention the fact you get Borderlands 3 or Ghost Recon Breakpoint free when you pick one up (just sayin’).

 

Dare to Dream

If you’re headed to Dreamhack Atlanta this weekend, make sure to stop by the CLX area! They’ll have a wealth of all-AMD systems set up so you can take a break from all the gaming with, well, even more gaming! You might even see some members of the Red Team community on the floor, so be on the lookout.

 

HyperX will also be on the scene with their esports bus, hosting tournaments and giveaways all weekend. If you’re blood is running hot for some competition, make sure to head their way to see what they’ve got going on.

 

We’re Getting a Makeover

 

As I said in last month’s post, we’re continuing the updates to our online presence very soon! We’ve been rolling out updates to our Discord server and Twitch channel, and now it’s our community page’s turn.

 

So, without further ado, we're happy to introduce you to the new and improved version of the Gaming Community Page! This is just the start, and you can expect more details soon on what we’re planning for our next phase starting in 2020.

 

What’s Next?

 

As you can tell, we’ve got a lot going on in the community this fall, and there’s always more to come. Like I alluded to above, the holidays are upon us, and we’re ready to celebrate with all of you! Be on the lookout for some signs of the holiday spirit as we make our way into December. We know you’re on the edge of your seats waiting to find out about our next VLAN, and you can rest assured it’s going to be a big one to close out the year. 

 

Stay tuned here for more updates. Until then, see you next time!
