It is hard to believe but Intel and AMD's Radeon Technologies Group just teamed up to deliver a joint holiday savings offer!
Gamers that buy the MSI Radeon RX 480 and the Intel Core i5-6600K via this special Newegg combo deal receive Doom and Civilization VI for free plus a $50 discount. The bundle has a price of $449.99 and to make it even better, MSI offers an additional $15 mail-in-rebate!
Radeon has joined forces with Intel to serve up a compelling, limited-time holiday bundle through Newegg that delivers the excellent power efficiency of Intel’s 6th Generation Core-i5 6600K CPU with the powerful, future-ready performance of the MSI Radeon Rx 480 ARMOR 8GB OC (overclocked) video card.
Of course, a combo is nothing without some valuable extra stuff and a smaller price tag, right? Buy this Intel + Radeon bundle on Newegg through December 31, 2016, and not only will you be halfway to building your own VR-capable PC equipped for ultra 1080p and 1440p gaming, but you’ll also have some awesome games to install when you’re finished: DOOM and Civilization VI.
There were some rumors about a graphics patent license deal between AMD and Intel earlier this week, no confirmation of that yet but this offer suggests both companies are warming up to each other.
