AMD Polaris Giveaway

Recommended Posts

1 hour ago, nicklmg said:

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!!

Currently rocking the best GPU on the market, the Intel HD 530 in the core i3 6100, featuring the I don't know specs, with the best cooling on the market (the Intel stock heat sink), great for playing such triple A titles like the original half life from 1998 at 1080p, and minecraft. Puts the 1080 to shame.

Been looking for graphics card after I first built my computer (I always intended to put one in, but decided to built it first, so I could have my own computer) and a polaris card would turn it from a web browser to a mean gaming/video editing/compositing machine.

My pc is meh, it's not custom built it's pre-made. This pc isn't that bad, but it isn't that good either, especially for gaming. It lags way to much and I need a new one. This graphics card will help a lot in the process of buying a new custom built pc. Thanks!

I have gtx 960  2gb so my card is not safe in the future because it lack ram. So Polaris have 8gb of ram and it is noticeable faster. Yeah that's the reason why I want that card

I have a Palit GTX 660 OC on my rig which already going up to 80 degrees Celsius temp. Had to replace the thermal paste with the help from Linus Tech Tips videos and it went down 10 degrees in temp. Can't wait to replace this video card with an RX 480 or GTX 1060.

I  am currently using Intel's integrated graphics and barely get 10FPS on most games at the lowest settings possible. some games I can get a playable but not responsive 30FPS like Halo: Combat Evolved. or Binding of Issac: AfterBirth. I am currently saving up for the AMD Radeon RX 480. but it keeps fluctuating in price and is currently at $419 (AUD) for the cheapest one, and I only get around $25ish (AUD) weekly from my job, because it's so cold and no ones coming to my work (a restaurant right next to the beach, which makes it colder) adn they don't put me on because they would be wasting money.... my point is... I don't like taking hand outs, but times are tough for a first worlder 16 year old here in Australia, and it be much appreciated if i could get a new GPU for an upgrade... PLEASE? I beg of you, look deep down inside of your heart and image the first time you wanted to get a PC...:(

 

do I get extra points for my 'true' sob story?

I currently have Nvidia GTX 550TI.

And after Steam sales this month I ended up on having 10+ games that I can not comfortably run even on Very Low settings.

So yeah - kinda need new GPU :)

Well, I own a Radeon HD7950, so I think it's time to upgrade. Also the fact that I got a new monitor that is 1440p, it's getting harder to run newer games now. I would be cool if I win and I would be super happy, but I'm not going to get upset if I don't win. So good luck to everyone who is entering this! :D

I could use it very well since a friend of mine doesn't really have the money to upgrade his current pc which he uses for cad applications, schoolwork and also to game with me and our friends, but because the graphics card is so bad games will eventually crash or he will close them manually because he is sick of the "under 30 fps mark" PS: It does feature a 3rd gen fast core i5 processor and supports an nvidia gt540(it was a prebuilt system) 

Also gibe nao pls :')
