From consoles and PC gaming to esports success, AMD powers it all—and now, we’re giving you a chance to rise to the top. Start your gaming legacy with AMD; you could win a trip to meet Fnatic at their Berlin gaming house and an AMD-powered gaming PC!
AMD holds the crown for game-worthy integrated graphics performance thanks to its Ryzen processors with Radeon Vega technology. Packing CPU cores and GPU resources onto the same die in the right proportions is a perpetual challenge, particularly as modern games push new features that improve realism. AMD strikes a sweet balance this generation, allowing for some insanely cool small form factor builds capable of casual gaming at 1080p.
The world’s best workstation graphics card under $1000, the AMD Radeon™ Pro WX 8200 graphics card allows creators to render and design at the same time, with up to 13x greater GPU multitasking performance than the competition.
When looking at a gaming PC build — whether an upcoming plan to build a PC, or upgrading a PC you already have — most gamers will prioritize researching the best CPU, GPU, and RAM they can get, as these are generally the most expensive items.
While prioritizing those should very much be the case, it isn’t everything you need to consider, though. There could be a bottleneck in your system, depending on where you decided to cut back on spending. Some do this on RAM, others when deciding whether or not to add liquid cooling to their CPU. For me? I’ve sometimes chosen to avoid spending money on new Hard Disk Drives (HDD) or Solid State Drives (SSD) for that matter — by reusing the storage I already have.
