    AMD / ATI enters the verse with an exclusive ship

    Post by General Zod on Wed 27 Aug 2014, 1:46 am

    Star Citizen has decided to partner with AMD and has announced the Mustang Omega Racer will be your reward for purchasing select upcoming AMD graphics cards.  It will also come with an AMD racing skin for the ship.



    Wonder how much AMD paid for this partnership.  They have been sending hardware gifts to Chris and the gang for some time now.

    Not thrilled by this.  I'm not an AMD fan.  Shrug

    I see it this way:

    Racing without advertising does not exist now; nor will it exist in the future
    Btw. the meaning of AMD "could be" "Accelerated Mass Design"

    But see yourself Ben's comment: https://forums.robertsspaceindustries.com/discussion/comment/3216350/#Comment_3216350

    This might just work on me Laughing V1
    I'm planning to buy a new computer for SC anyways and I guess this might just influence my decision towards an AMD graphics card.

    I feel so... influenced Shocked

    For me this will all depend on where GC's are closer to the end of next year.  If there is merit to going with AMD  and they have not added the cost of the ship into their card it is something I too will have to consider.

    Keep in mind that this is just a skin (i.e. a paint job). The racing version of this ship will be available ingame.

    Could also indicate that AMD is not as confident in their next gen stuff pulling ahead of nvidia but time and benchmarks will tell. Happy
