Advanced Micro Devices on Wednesday announced the arrival of “Never Settle Forever,” the third edition of the “Never Settle” franchise of game bundles. The “Never Settle Forever” allows gamers to assemble their own game bundle from an extensive catalog of titles optimized for AMD Radeon graphics cards. Unfortunately, the amount of free games has been reduced to maximum three per graphics boards.

With “Never Settle Forever”, the purchase of qualifying AMD Radeon HD 7000-series GPUs at a participating retailer will invite gamers to join the Radeon Bronze, Radeon Silver or Radeon Gold Reward tiers with a digital or in-box coupon. Starting with the Radeon Bronze Reward, the coupon will empower gamers to select one game from a catalog of six AMD-optimized titles. With a Radeon Silver Reward, the coupon will free gamers to choose any two games from a roster of eight AMD-optimized titles. And with the ultimate coupon, Radeon Gold Reward, gamers may choose any three titles from a stunning roster of nine games.

 

While free games are always nice and can traditionally be a revenue driver, the AMD Never Settle Forever program is far from being able to attract attention to AMD products, unless the company simply cuts the prices. The AMD NSF program currently includes outdated games and old graphics cards. The majority of gamers already own the games and already own the current-generation AMD Radeon HD 7000-series graphics cards.

“AMD has numerous close ISV partnerships with the world’s top game developers and we are thrilled to collaborate with them to the benefit of gamers. “But the ‘Never Settle Forever’ program is an entirely new dimension of that commitment, as it pioneers the concept of a completely customizable game bundle. For the very first time, gamers can assemble their own perfect bundle from a vast catalog of games optimized for AMD technology,” said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD graphics business unit.

Gamers that already own all titles of interest to them can save their coupon up until December 31, 2013 in anticipation for one or more new games that may enter the “Never Settle Forever” program.

The “Never Settle Forever” bundle enables user choice in one of three Reward tiers with the purchase of select AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series GPUs at participating retailers:

To celebrate the introduction of “Never Settle Forever,” the Radeon RAMDisk software will also feature a special promotional price of just $8.99 (a $10 discount on the retail price.) The ideal companion to any game or application, the Radeon RAMDisk software can dynamically harness unused system RAM for dramatically improved load and execution times. Gamers in any tier of the “Never Settle Forever” program will be offered this exclusive opportunity upon registering their Radeon Reward code.

Last quarter AMD graphic card shipments increased 10%. The never settle bundles are working to increase sales and are worth the cash splash.

Actually if you paid attention to AMD's financials you'd know they were breaking even to losing money with these bundles. They're spending a lot of money and not generating an equal amount of sales with it. Not hard to figure it out when you see these bundle codes for "$150 worth of games" on ebay for $25.

Meanwhile while AMD is doing these stupid software refreshes they're letting Nvidia walk all over them this generation. The 9000 series is still months away from its inevitable paper launch and Nvidia has had plenty of time to roll out the entire 700 series and build solid inventory.

Héhéhé, and guess who just received his second 7970 this morning. Thats pretty good news for me my friends! I'll have the pleasure of testing three new games in Crossfire.

I didn't take into account the Never Settle Bundle when buying the card, but a Sapphire Radeon Dual-X OC for $319, considering the performance level of the beast, it was a no brainer!
