AMD And Intel Teaming Up To Bring An Awesome Holiday Bundle
It is not common in the hardware industry to see AMD and Intel teaming up but they have and they have brought a neat Holiday bundle incorporation with Newegg.
As described by AMD, the company wants for its community to get a healthy dose of ultra-quality PC gaming. AMD and Intel are teaming up to bring the community “the excellent power efficiency of Intel’s 6th Generation Core-i5 6600K CPU with the powerful, future-ready performance of the MSI Radeon Rx 480 ARMOR 8GB OC (overclocked) video card”.
That is not all, those who will buy this Holiday bundle until December 31, 2016, they will also get DOOM and Civilization VI with the bundle. Also, the system you will be getting will be half ready for VR.
In related news, AMD Zen is about to come out and a live preview is scheduled for December 13 but not all are convinced that it will have an impact on Intel as much as we think. According to Intel’s head of its client computing and Internet of Things efforts, Murthy Renduchintala, Intel’s market is very strong in in core microprocessor markets.
Our belief is that Intel’s execution is very strong in core microprocessor markets, even amid recent challenging growth conditions, but that the machine-like reliable precision and planning driven by the tick/tock methodology, and the challenges that the company’s microprocessor designers take on to ensure the world’s most powerful microprocessor transistor, could be a barrier to the nimble and flexible process required to drive innovation in newer markets with a more reactive planning cycle.
The Holiday bundle is available for a total of $449.99 and the consumers will get an overall US $170 discount on the original price.
