The Never Settle agreement is not tied to any particular GPU partner. This implies that people can head to Amazon or Newegg and purchase any AMD card that is specified to qualify for the promotion. Additionally, there are grabs for Far Cry 3, Sleeping Dogs and Hitman Absolution. All of the games are free with the purchase of an AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series graphics card.

Budget builder can buy Radeon HD 7770 GHz version qualifies for a free edition of Far Cry 3 apart from 20% off on Medal of Honor Warfighter. The latter applies to each tier in the Never Settle Series.
This is probably one of the best promotions that AMD has ever come up with, both in terms of flexibility and value. Also, AMD claims its Catalyst 12.11 release makes it even better by delivering up to 15% higher framerates in games like Dirt Showdown, Sleeping Dogs, Battlefield, Medal of Honor Warfighter and much more. AMD seems to be pretty excited with performance bump.
