Correct: "Get AMD Assassin's Creed Valhalla for PC w/ purchase, limited offer"

Would this have a street value? How would one go about selling it if so?

My understanding is that you would receive a code to activate via uPlay.

Game will retail new for 79.99. It’ll probably sell easy @ 60$ in the first week, granted you find someone willing to trust buying a CD-Key from a guy on the internet.

Edit : last year redemption instruction with AC:Odyssey via similar AMD promo

https://support.ubisoft.com/en-gb/Faqs/ ... oLoginData

Edit #2 : “Enter the code you received in the Coupon Code field then click Submit. Note that, in order for the redemption process to complete successfully, *you might* be required to have the AMD product your purchased installed on your machine. “

Therefore I’d say YMMV with resale. However, this sweetens the deal if you were planning on purchasing the game nonetheless

Nice find. I just purchased a 3600 a few weeks ago for my first pc build since 2011. I'm really tempted to return my 3600 and get the 3700x with the game, but with the 4000 series around the corner I know I'm being rash. Someone talk some sense to me!

I was thinking that too, but there's always something new around the corner... I'm really tempted to just get this and just build a new computer that I can use now than wait for the announcement, then wait for stock, etc...

@griffy - I feel your pain!

Edit: I wish the US$85 Ryzen 5 1600 AF (YD1600BBAFBOX) was somehow available as an interim solution. Or perhaps even the 3100.

I’d do the switch. The difference is not much. Use the 3700x now and upgrade to the 16 core of the 4xxx in 2 years, when its price fall off the roof already

It may drop even lower on black friday if we look at the price of the 2700x last year.

How is this compare to i7??

Last time I use AMD was like 15 years ago. Went back to Intel for their i5-3770k , that machine still running as my plex server and Blueiris.

i7 of which generation? There's 10 generations of i7 it would help a lot to narrow it down.
Intel core series from 1st to 7th generation are quad cores; 8th generation are 6-cores, 9th and 10th generation i7 are 8-cores while 10th gen i9 are 10 cores.
3700x will be superior to all of pre-9th generation per core speed unless you have a highly binned overclocked model (for example, my i5 4690k overclocked to 4.7Ghz all 4-cores on 1.3V still takes slight lead in 4-core computing compared to 3700x)

Seems to be available from Amazon.com with shipping to Canada (https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-3700X- ... 227&sr=8-1 )

With shipping and duties to Quebec, It ends up being ~$422 CDN, which would be about ~$367 pre-tax. May be lower for other provinces.

Compared to Amazon.ca, it would be $35-$40 less, but with slower shipping and questionable returns.

It's time to go back to AMD (and actually has been for well over a year). I'm going to assume that by "i7" you'd want to compare against the i7-9700K, which is probably the most comparable at the same base clock and 8 cores. While the Intel one has a higher boost clock, it runs hotter and takes more power at 95 W vs 65 W, only has 8 threads vs 16, and costs around $510. The AMD one also already supports PCIe 4.0 and comes packaged with a cooler. Motherboards for it are also cheaper than comparable boards for the Intel chips.

Unless you're strictly gaming on games optimized for Intel or perhaps doing professional Photoshop work exclusively, go with AMD.

I do not game.

So the table turn again. The reason I move from AMD to Intel was AMD run hot and use more power, plus Intel was faster as well.
