Both the CPU and GPU are very pretty and look great for any space-faring adventure, but you have to win them.
During an AMD video back in June, Microsoft announced a big partnership with AMD for their upcoming release of Starfield. The fruits of that labor were all shown this week with a big team-up for marketing.
Starting off, AMD dropped a really pretty video, showing off Starfield limited editions of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and the Ryzen 7 7800X3D. They’re basically identical to their normal counterparts but with a really nice look to them.
As a majority of people cover their CPUs entirely within a case, the “limited edition” part of the Ryzen 7 CPU is just on the box. The Radeon GPU, on the other hand, has some amazing detailing.
Anyone familiar with the aesthetic of Starfield knows the simple white of their controls and ships, with a multi-banded stripe for a splash of various colors. The card looks slick, sleek, and bears the Starfield logo in the corner.
Basically, it looks like it came right out of the game and we’re here for it. And you can only currently find it by winning one. With only 500 units being produced, this really is "limited".
These are not available for normal sale. However, it appears they may also be available to win at QuakeCon 2023, if you're lucky enough to be there.
But, all is not lost! You can get yourself in on the AMD and Starfield collaboration!
In addition to the partnership, AMD is offering a free copy of Starfield for select items purchased during their promotion. This is not abnormal as graphics cards and CPUs offer a free game with a lot of their products. However, this promotion is pretty nice by comparison.
Depending on what items purchased will grant you either the Standard or Premium versions of the game. Obviously, the higher end the item is, the more likely it is that you’ll get the Premium Edition. There’s a nice chart on Newegg here, as well as plenty of options to buy. But, a lot of stores offer products from this campaign.
(Editor's Note: Newegg publishes GameCrate. However, this is not an officially sanctioned sales post from our publisher. They just so happen to have all of the information nicely detailed on their website for this promotion. We just wanted to be transparent here.)
Buying a pre-built PC with both the CPU and GPU installed also merits a full Premium Edition. But, good luck getting one of those so close to launch.
With Starfield right around the corner, this game is a beast. It’s everything that the No Man’s Sky fanbase wanted out of that game years ago but is made with the proficient storytelling of Bethesda.
Oh, and if you've never owned an AMD before, don't forget to also keep your AMD drivers fully updated with a beast like Starfield. We wrote a full how-to for those that take up this offer.
