To bring new Sim City to APU buyers

The Never Settle and the Never Settle Reloaded bundle program have been quite a sucess for AMD and it is no wonder that AMD is looking for a way to extend it further by bundling Sim City with selected AMD A8 or A10 series APUs.

According to a set of slides published by Hadwareluxx.de, as of the second week of April, select AMD A8 and A10 APUs will be eligible to get a free Origin game download code for Sim City, adding US $59.99 of value to those APUs.

As you can see from the slide below, AMD compared the A8-5600K with Core i3-3225 system with Nvidia GT620 graphics in Sim City at 1920x1080 ends up quite a bit slower. The A8-5600K practically managed to render almost twice the number of frames per second.

AMD Also released a slide showing the performance gain for some of its APUs, including the flagship A10-5800K, A8-5600K, A6-5400K and the A4-5300K showing that even the cheapes A4-5300K is capable of providing much better score in the new 3DMark when compared to Intel offering.

It is good that AMD keeps pushing its Never Settle program and adding US $59.99 of value to some APUs is certainly a nice deal. It is still not clear which APUs will be eligible and in which regions but we will be sure as soon as AMD officially announce it.
