I'm currently using a HD7790 and I think upgrading to Polaris 10 or 11 will be a great idea since it so power efficient and DirectX12 and Vulkan is coming, and they're the king for DX12 and Vulkan!

I kid you not, but I'm using an Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 with a 1GB Point of View Nvidia GeForce 8400GS.

My laptop is an i5 6200U with a GT940M.

I know the RX480 will easily bottleneck my E7500 but it'll be an incentive to upgrade to a newer rig, been waiting to jump on the AMD bandwagon anyway ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It'd really be nice to get a head start in the graphics department :)

I currently have a MSI GTX 960 100Million edition in my rig and would like to upgrade because I don't have such a good experience with some of the more intensive games.

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).


3. Check your inbox here on the forum to make sure you didn't miss it. Our winners' usernames will be added to the OP here, so if you have any question about the legitimacy of a congratulatory message regarding this giveaway, please be sure to check back here and see if your name has been added.


And, while this isn't a requirement, feel free to give our friends over at @AMDRadeon on Twitter a follow.


Winners will be PMed from this account on the forum. Please do not consider winner messages from any other user in regards to this giveaway.


This giveaway is worldwide with no age restriction.


Best of luck to all!!

It would be awesome to this AMD Polarius in my upcoming first PC build. This would help me save a ton if money while making an ok set up awesome.

Bit of an AMD fan I suppose. I don't bias my replies to anything however, I just prefer AMD and their products. Buy whatever the H*CK you want.

I currently use the GTX 970, I'd love to have an AMD GPU/CPU to support the underdog who is more pro-consumer than Intel or Nvidia.
