AMD Polaris Giveaway

Recommended Posts

I have a 3G MSI HD7950 and while it can still handle most things on medium graphics i am certainly in the market for a upgrade that will last a while

I'm currently using a crappy old laptop which can't run anything past 2013. I'm building my first gaming rig and the rx480 would be right up my alley.

Right now I'm using my very first rig, which is now just the original graphics card and cpu. The card being an R9 270x (the best buy special edition), and a black edition AMD FX 8350. The reason I need to update my graphics card is because I am becoming a much more active gaming enthusiast and am no longer able to play at the best games have to offer and I swear this card is breaking. Aside from the constant graphics card driver failings, it just isn't doing the work I expected it to be doing, considering at the time I bought this card it was considered to last several years with out seeing any real performance barriers. Most of all though, the reason I want this card is to show my friend who bought a 1070 that AMD is still a relevant option.

Well, my rig (and myself of course) would love to upgrade from geforce 560 SE, because this card is old, slow and just bad nowdays. It's even the SE version, which is even worse than normal 560! You're my only hope Linus, help me :D
Thanks for the giveaway and keep up the great content you make.

So AMD's new graphics cards are here, and they are pretty sick... But what's even more sick than hearing about a new graphics card? Owning one for yourself!

Aw yeah man, we are giving away one Polaris 10 video card and one Polaris 11 video card thanks to our good friends over at AMD.

 

So, how do you enter to win one of these fine graphics cards?

 

1. Post a comment below telling us what graphics card you're using in your rig and why you want an upgrade to AMD's Polaris lineup. The two winners will be selected at random, so no, the content of your comment doesn't REALLY matter, but this is more fun than seeing 800 posts of "I want it" or "gibe nao pls."

 

2. Check back here in about a week when the names of our two winners will be added to the OP (giveaway execution is an art not a science people, so I apologize in advance if winners aren't announced in exactly one week).

I am a budget gamer so my specs aren't too good and the GPU isn't too good either. Enough to run games but isn't enough to play at higher quality. gtx 650 is my gpu. TBH I really need more RAM than anything else. Thx I hope I can win! Hope all of the luck to all of you!

I am planning to do a pc build and if I win a graphics card it would best help me on the way to Help with the parts gathering  (btw I am now imagining everyone spamming the F5 key in about a week, myself included).when I finish a pc build I want to start a YouTube channel, it will include gaming lets plays, Anime related content and pc builds. And if it goes big I will give a shout out to both you Linus -and other you tubers such as Austin Evans and tech source- regardless if I win this contest or not. So anyway I hope you enjoy my little rant on why I texted a hole bunch of crap instead of just typing Give meh neow pleach. Thank u!

I'm currently using a GTX 960. I've used it extensively for computational loads for ML with Cuda, but the Polaris card would be a nice upgrade in order to test VR in the future.

Polaris (OpenCL) still can't tip the Cuda ecosystem though...
