AMD Bundles Deus Ex: Mankind Divided With Select FX Processors
John Williamson / 4 years ago
With Zen just around the corner, it makes sense for AMD to launch promotions on their existing processor range to shift stock in a relatively quick fashion. At the moment, it seems a number of companies including AMD and NVIDIA are engaging in similar strategies and bundling exciting AAA games with certain components. According to a listing by US retailer, Newegg.com, AMD has decided to bundle a free copy of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided with qualifying FX-series processors. Apparently, this range includes the AMD FX-8370 with Wraith, FX-8370 (standard), FX-8350 with Wraith, FX-8350 Black Edition, FX-8320E, FX-8320, FX-8300, FX-6350 with Wraith, FX-6350, and FX-6300.
Whether this promotion comes to European markets remains to be seen, but it’s a great incentive for those who need a new CPU today. Of course, the FX range is fairly dated and if you can wait for Zen, you should. Saying that, not everyone needs a hugely powerful processor, and the FX range, especially on lower-end SKUs offer good value. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided remains a fairly expensive title and received decent reviews. This makes the new package an attractive proposition and it’s a cogent move to sell large quantities of FX processors.
