Over the last half year or so, one of the most common complaints of PC gamers was (and still is) that GPUs are too damn expensive. With demand from cryptocurrency miners being high, there wasn't a whole lot of supply to hit traditional retail shelves at or near the suggested retail pricing.
It's not a situation that AMD and NVIDIA preferred, but there wasn't a whole lot the companies could do about it. Now AMD is going to try something new by offering Combat Crates. This is basically a bundle with a CPU, GPU, and a motherboard.
The AMD Combat Create will feature a Ryzen 5 1600 or Ryzen 7 1700 processor, the MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor video card, and the MSI B350 Tomahawk motherboard. Overall, this feels more like "meh". As VideoCardz points out, it looks like AMD and MSI are using this to get rid of some previous-gen inventory.
The AMD Combat Crate comes stocked with essential hardware you need to push your game to the next level and lay waste to the competition. With a lightning-fast Ryzen processor, powerful RX graphics backed by revolutionary Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition and a feature-ready MSI motherboard — the AMD Combat Crate is the ultimate arsenal for gamers.
