    only really an incentive if you're an avid player of one of those games already (which I'm not though I've heard WoT is good)
    Can't see it appealing to the gaming masses, not as much as crysis 3! (and bioshock infinite)

    Complete fail Nvidia, here we have AMD with less expensive GPU's and they are banging out the latest titles for free with them, Nvidia rolls in with naff in game credit for F2P titles, cheapskates. I know who would be getting my cash if I required a new GPU, and it aint Nvidia.

    Can't help but think there's something wrong with those FPS numbers, for example, in WoT I get a higher FPS on my 560 Ti than what they show for the 650 Ti. I understand they haven't shown the full spec of the PC, but still a bit odd.

    From your point of view maybe, but if you don't want the games AMD are bundling and you happen to play those F2P titles (which happen to be rather popular) then NVIDIA is the better bet in terms of freebies. You aren't the only customer out there you know.

    Could be different resolution, CPU, in game settings etc. etc. The only value of that graph is to convince people with older cards to buy a shiny new one and get 'up to OMG 630% performance boost'...

    So mucH inferior bundle compared to

    CRYSIS 3
    BIOSHOCK INFINITE
    TOMB RAIDER
    FAR CRY 3
    HITMAN ABSOLUTION
    SLEEPING DOGS
    My HeXus Trust

    Anime Thread 2
    Epic Gaming Tracks

    --The lengths that some people will seemingly go to in the defence of the indefensible is quite staggering, if not also disturbing.--

    It looks like the poor-mans bundle in comparison but don't forget an awful lot of people play World of Tanks.

    Hate the new F2P paradigm (along with DLC and rotten console ports)... probably wouldn't pay for anything 'extra' in a F2P but especially not 'cosmetic' items...

    I'd rather take a full paid game than credits in f2p games. In a heartbeat.
    ATI has far far better offers now than nvidia.
    Imo it's a bit of a fail.

    Re: News - Nvidia’s F2P in-game cash bundle

    What do readers think of Nvidia's new F2P in-game cash promotion? Is it a good response to AMD's Never Settle: Reloaded games bundle for Radeon HD 7800 or better graphics cards, announced last week?
    Mixed opinions on this. On one hand I'm not that impressed with "free to play" because all that actually means is that you're not paying upfront - instead you're "encouraged" into in-app purchases, which I'm not convinced aren't ending up more expensive. No, when I've tried F2P they've actually been more like "trial" editions.

    On the other hand, I know from past experience that redeeming codes from Ubisoft can be an exercise in frustration. I had a code for HAWX2 that I ended up missing out on because the daft Ubisoft site still wanted a credit card "swipe" for a £0 "purchase", none of mine were apparently valid (funny that, considering I'm still using 'em for PC World, petrol, Amazon, etc), and Ubisoft's shop support were utterly unhelpful (e.g. "you need to use another card", "but I've tried all of my cards!", "so you need to use another one", etc)

    If the codes were redeemed through something other than Ubisoft's (sh***y) shop site then I'd be far more interested in the AMD deal.

    I guess it really depends whether you already play one, or more, of the F2P titles that NVidia are supporting and - more importantly - whether you already have one, or more, of the titles that AMD are offering. Obviously if you've already got the AMD bundle, then there's no value in it for you.

    Personally, if I was in the market (i.e. had the money) for an 7900-based Crossfire setup or a 7990 then AMD's bundle looks pretty sweet - although I've already got Sleeping Dogs, (and I'm not interested in Tomb Raider), the rest look good.

    It's Nvidia squewing the numbers to entice people towards upgrading to the expensive cards.
    I'm sticking with AMD's HD 7870 when I upgrade on the 21st... Much better value for money for same'ish performance levels.

    Maybe it's just me picking up on the wrong signals, but I'm getting the distinct impression that the AMD gear seems to have a longer "service life" than the NVidia equivalents. For example, the 600 series hasn't been out that long, yet I'm already reading pieces that the 700 series will "move performance to a new level", and that a 660 is good "stop gap" card in the meantime.

    On the other hand, I'm still seeing folks here saying that they're going to "upgrade" to 7950 and 7970's. Given I've got an AMD motherboard, I'm kind of tempted to jump ship to AMD for the first time - the only drawbacks being the loss of PhysX and CUDA encoding of MP3's.
