Sapphire Technology, the world’s largest manufacturer of AMD Radeon-branded graphics cards, has announced plans to bundle vouchers for Battlefield 4 with several new products in its recently launched AMD Radeon R9-series of graphics accelerators. Sapphire is the first company to bundle Battlefield 4 with a family of graphics boards.

Being one of the highly-anticipated video games of this year, Battlefield 4 is the title that attracts loads of attention to Sapphire graphics cards based on AMD Radeon R9-series graphics processing units (GPUs) – including code-named Tahiti, code-named Hawaii and code-named Pitcairn graphics processors featuring GCN [graphics core next] architecture.

Sapphire originally launched a Special Edition of the flagship R9 290X graphics accelerator bundled with a Battlefield 4 voucher. Now the game voucher will be included with additional members of the Radeon R-series. These include the Sapphire R9 290 – recently launched to great critical acclaim as great value for money for the gaming enthusiast – and several products in the Sapphire Dual-X series. The voucher will only be bundled with specially branded editions of the Sapphire R9 280X Dual-X, R9 280 Dual-X, R9 270X Dual-X and the brand new Sapphire R9 270 Dual-X.

All the members of the Dual-X series use Sapphire exclusive dual extraction technology – a highly efficient cooler with graduated heat-pipes and two aero-foil section fans running quietly and efficiently to deliver great performance with low noise levels.

Cards with the Battlefield 4 voucher will be available to order from November 13th from Sapphire’s existing etailers and retailers.

Disguising the equivalent of a paid advertisement as news is a c*** move.

In the article annoncing the GTX 780Ti published on november 7th:
Pricing is expected to start at $699 and for a limited time participating partners will include a free copy of Batman: Arkham Origins, Assassin's Creed IV--Black Flag and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist.


So what, who buys a VGA card for the bundled games these days? These are just plain facts

Nice cooler! This works wonder with the 7970, it should do well with the 290X.

I wonder if the card will be equiped with a BIOS switch with 2 different profiles.
