AMD has announced the AMD Rewards Program that gives gamers the chance to redeem points earned within the AMD Gaming Evolved application for actual prizes. The move is designed to increase popularity of the Gaming Evolved application that automatically maximizes user experience in popular gamers on systems based on AMD Radeon graphics technology.

The AMD Gaming Evolved app helps gamers get the best experience every time they play by recommending optimal game settings tailored to their rig, keeping their drivers up to date and through a diverse set of in-game tools like chat, web-browsing, live-streaming and so on. Players can earn points by using the app to play their favorite games, optimize setting for those games, or engage with the community. Those points can be redeemed for AMD Rewards in the Raptr store.

Gamers will be able to redeem points for prizes, such as: Sapphire Technology Radeon R9-series graphics cards, free games, Astro gaming headsets, GameFly subscriptions, Gunnar gaming eyewear, discounts and more. AMD Rewards Program is an extension to the broader Raptr Rewards program, which has already given out millions of dollars’ worth of rewards.

“We are thankful for the millions of gamers that support the AMD Radeon™ brand by using the AMD Gaming Evolved application Powered by Raptr. The AMD Rewards program is our way of thanking our loyal customers and giving back to the community that has given so much to us,” said Darren McPhee, director of graphics marketing at AMD.

While the idea to reward gamers for their loyalty, community building efforts, playing games and other things sounds interesting, many gamers complained that it is impossible to earn 35 – 80 thousand of reward points to get a graphics card. Still, some video games can be redeemed for around 5 thousand RPs, which is reasonable.
