AMD has announced a new deal with GameFly that allows users to take advantage of the video game rental company's services if they purchase an AMD CPU or APU.
AMD, an American developer of computer processors like central processing units (CPUs) and accelerated processing units (APUs), wants to give gamers an incentive to use its processors by offering a limited subscription to GameFly as well as a discount on games at the GameFly store.
"AMD draws inspiration from gamers, game developers and the PC gaming industry," said John Taylor, director of Global Product and Technology Marketing at AMD. "Hand-in-hand with the AMD Gaming Evolved program, we continue to listen to gamers and fulfill our 'Gamers Come First!' pledge. AMD's close affiliation with GameFly shows our gratitude to gamers and to GameFly for recognizing how AMD represents best-in-class PC gaming experiences."
Gamers that use select AMD CPUs and APUs like the AMD Athlon II CPUs, AMD A-Series APUs, AMD FX Series CPUs and AMD Phenom II CPUs are eligible for a 30-day GameFly membership and 20 percent discount on a new PC game from the GameFly store.
"GameFly is excited about its agreement with AMD because we've recently expanded into the PC gaming market with our robust new digital client," said Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and SVP of Business Development and Content. "We strive to deliver the best consumer experience and we believe AMD's innovative technology and dedication to the PC gaming community amplify our mission as we continue to cater to our customers and enhance the value of our services."
GameFly introduced a public beta for its new PC digital download client back in December 2011, which features Unlimited PC Play. Unlimited PC Play offers a library of core, classic, casual and independent games that can be downloaded for free.
