Get Far Cry 5 Free With Select Radeon Powered Gaming PCs

It is tough to buy individual graphics cards these days thanks to the cryptocurrency boom, but you can still find pre-built systems stuffed with high-end graphics cards to purchase. This is bad for the DIY enthusiast market, but the truth is buying a pre-built system often costs less than building a system with the same parts yourself. If you happen to be in the market for a new system or high-end graphics cards we just learned about a new deal that might be of interest to you.

AMD Rewards

AMD has worked closely with Ubisoft on Far Cry 5 and this title will be launching with game optimized Radeon Software Adrenaline Edition drivers. AMD noted that playing Far Cry 5 on their hardware and software will allow for  exceptional image quality, stunningly high frame rates and low latency. This game title will be supporting several advanced Radeon RX Vega-specific features, including:

  • Rapid Packed Math – Doubles the rate of compute to allow for faster physics and compute calculations on Vega GPUs (video on Rapid Packed Math)
  • Shader Intrinsics –  Allows direct game to hardware access on Radeon RX cards to extract more performance from the GPU (Video on GPUOpen)
  • Radeon FreeSync 2 – Brings low-latency, high-brightness pixels and a wide color gamut to High Dynamic Range (HDR) content for PC displays

We’ve been waiting for AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 monitors since January 2017, so we can’t wait to experience this game title on a Radeon Vega graphics card feeding pixels to one of the new FreeSync 2 displays. With FreeSync 2 you’ll get the usual FreeSync technology that matches frame rates and refresh rates to prevent screen tearing topped off with Low Framerate Compensation and HDR. FreeSync 2 brings tighter standards to the table for the variable refresh monitor market and that is a good thing!
