    AMD R9 Series + Battlefield 4 Promotion: Official Q & A

    Hello everyone,
    I don’t mean to be spamming, just simply trying to share the information below with as many of our fans as possible. I hope you’ll find this official Q & A and the various links helpful:

    Q: Why doesn’t AMD and their board partners include games with all product SKUs like some of your competitors?
    A: AMD is committed to the gaming community and believes in maximizing choice for our customers. For example, this could mean choosing between a deluxe GPU bundle, a premium bundle, or a “stand-alone” card.

    Q: I’ve heard that the AMD Radeon™ Battlefield 4™ promotion was applicable to all AMD Radeon™ R9 Series GPUs. But now I’m hearing that it’s only on select R9 Series GPUs. Which is true?
    A: AMD’s board partners, including Sapphire, XFX, MSI, Asus, HIS, Gigabyte and others, will be identifying select AMD Radeon™ R9 290X, R9 290, R9 280X, R9 270X and R9 270 SKUs for the Battlefield 4™ promotion. Please visit www.amd.com/battlefield4 for a regularly-updated list of specific models that include Battlefield 4™ with the purchase of an AMD Radeon™ R9 Series GPU.

    Q: Why weren’t all the AMD Radeon R9 Battlefield 4 promotion SKUs available in e-tail and retail on November 13th?
    A: AMD is committed to the gaming community and believes in offering choice to consumers. AMD will be providing board partners with Battlefield 4™ game codes which they can use for promotions in accordance with their product schedule. As a result, not all board partners will release bundled SKUs on the same day.

    Q: I bought an AMD Radeon™ R9 Series GPU prior to the introduction of the Battlefield 4™ promotion on November 13, 2013. Shouldn’t early adopters get codes?
    A: AMD was unable to deliver this promotion prior to November 13th due to contractual obligations between EA/DICE and AMD. Due to the terms and conditions of this promotion, customers who have purchased an AMD Radeon™ R9 Series Graphics card prior to November 13, 2013 are not eligible to receive Battlefield 4 game codes. But as a gesture of goodwill to our most loyal fans, we’ll be giving away in a random draw 1000 Battlefield 4 game codes in the coming weeks. Follow www.facebook.com/amdgaming or www.twitter.com/amdradeon for more information on this upcoming promotion.

    Q: I bought an AMD Radeon™ R9 Series GPU on November 13 (or later) because of this Battlefield 4™ promotion, but I didn’t receive a key. Shouldn’t I be eligible?
    A: To maximize consumer choice in the marketplace, AMD gives its board partners the ability to decide which specific models come bundled with a copy of Battlefield 4™ as well as which resellers will carry those models with the bundle. We understand that this distinction was not made clear upon program introduction, and AMD moved quickly to clarify the promotion conditions. As a gesture of goodwill to our most loyal fans, we’ll be giving away in a random draw 1000 Battlefield 4 game codes in the coming weeks. Follow www.facebook.com/amdgaming or www.twitter.com/amdradeon for more information on this upcoming promotion.

    So aib's greed makes amd look bad. Got to admit though they didn't help themselves by not being clear in the first place.
    Makes me wonder why they don't just sell the reference cards at consumer level themselves and leave the aib's to the custom built ones.

    "to maximise consumer choice in the marketplace"

    What a terrible (that's using family friendly language by the way) phrase AMD have come up with to try and cover this. Pretty pathetic IMHO. I don't like this new AMD direction (echoed in their new website design) at all.

    I think it's pretty poor that the early adopters of the series haven't been given any kind of incentive.

    They don't need it, or they wouldn't be early adopters.
