The top chaps at AMD are calling this one FUEL YOUR GAME, and it sure fits!

For a limited time and only while code stocks last, you can register selected AMD Gaming PC builds configurations to redeem a Dirt 5 game code to go with your new PC.

Via AMD: Let loose in DIRT 5™ Launch PC Edition with a system powered by select AMD Ryzen™ processors and AMD Radeon™ graphics cards. Hit the dirt track and battle your friends to take the lead in the next generation of extreme racing.

To be eligible for this promotion you must have certain AMD Ryzen CPU + AMD Radeon graphics within the PC, and it must be purchased from an authorised retailer so you can claim the AMD Rewards Key (PB Tech in New Zealand). This promo is for purchases made between April 20th – June 19th 2021.

CPU wise, there’s a massive range of Ryzen 7 & 9 options that are eligible, including both the newest 5000 series and some great 3rd gen options. See the quick list below with links to CPU which are available now in NZ.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X (This one is a GGPC favourite)

AMD Ryzen 7 3800X

GPU wise it’s also an excellent list, with the new RX 6700 XT graphics cards in the list along with other popular graphics cards, quick linked again for eas shopping 🙂

AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT (So many great new options!)

AMD Radeon RX 6800

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT

Looking closely at the T&C it’s interesting to see both the RX 570 & RX 580 are also included, but not much much newer RX 5700 XT, so it’s very possible that’s an error, we’ve asked AMD for more info and will update when they get back to us 🙂

Now onto the GAME!

DIRT 5 is graphically stunning, provided you’ve got the hardware to push out the frames. Lighting and rain effects are particularly impressive and the Codemasters team worked with AMD directly to make the game experience top-notch!

So there we have it, super fun times ahead with awesome Dirt 5 races to be had on lots of awesome new AMD Gaming PC!

GAME ON!

Good Gaming CPU – AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 9 5900X

UPDATE: The Ryzen 5000 series is available now in the AMD Store

Wooohooo! AMD have just revealed a bunch of new AMD Ryzen Desktop CPU options and announced a global release date set for November 5th 🙂

Via AMD: When you have the world’s most advanced processor architecture for gamers and content creators, the possibilities are endless. Whether you are playing the latest games, designing the next skyscraper, or crunching data, you need a powerful processor that can handle it all—and more. Hands down, the AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series desktop processors set the bar for gamers and artists alike.

And they’re certainly looking great! During the event, AMDs’ technical marketing guru, Robert Hallock, took the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X through a series of games and performance benchmarks, at first showing the increase in performance VS his own Ryzen 9 3900XT, then moving into the same series of comparisons VS the Intel i9-10900K.

What was really cool about all this was that it was done on current gen motherboard platforms. This kind of boost in performance without a new motherboard is uncommon, and AMD is giving gamers, many of whom have already invested in an X570 or B550 series for their current 3rd gen CPU, the opportunity to do a same-socket CPU upgrade to their PC. We’ll know about exactly which CPU will work with which motherboard closer to release though.

For those gearing up, AMD Rewards have a Far Cry 6 game bonus offer set to begin on November 5th too, but this looks to only be for the Ryzen 7 5800X, Ryzen 9 5900X and 5950X CPU options – we’ll update with more info as it comes in.

It all looks awesome, and at the end Lisa Su continued to wow the crowd by holding up a MASSIVE new AMD RX 6800 XT graphics card, which is said to be detailed in another AMD release event taking place on October 28th (29th here in NZ, see you at 5am again!)

GAME ON!
