AMD Ryzen 2000 series CPUs have been released recently and now we have got reports of the upcoming AMD Combat Crate that features everything that you need for gaming according to AMD. That is what it says on the box. The AMD Combat Crate comes with a CPU, GPU and motherboard, which is pretty much the main parts that you need for gaming.
The CPU included in the AMD Combat Crate is the AMD Ryzen 1700. The graphics card is the AMD RX 580 graphics card and an MSI B350 Tomahawk motherboard. This is a leak and we are not sure whether this will be the fixed configuration or there will be other configurations of the AMD Combat Crate as well.
This is indeed a way to stop miners from getting their hands on the graphics cards and allow gamers to buy upgrades in packs. While there is no guarantee that miners will not try and get the crate and try to sell the CPU and GPU in the market but the increased price of all these parts as compared to a separate GPU should be incentive enough for them not to try in the first place.
This could prove to be a very successful way of getting hardware to the gamers and bypassing the miners altogether. How this will play out is something that we will have to wait and see. You can check out the AMD Combat Crate below.
The AMD Combat Crate comes stocked with essential hardware you need to push your game to the next level and lay waste to the competition. With a lightning-fast Ryzen processor, powerful RX graphics backed by revolutionary Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition and a feature-ready MSI motherboard — the AMD Combat Crate is the ultimate arsenal for gamers.
It should be noted that the new 2000 series CPU are not included in the bundle and it is possible that this is a way of getting rid of older stock, which is not a bad thing for gamers in this case. While the previous generation chips are a bit slower the performance is pretty much the same and the core counts are the same as well. This is indeed something to look into.
While mining has seemed to slow down. It seems that this could be a great way of getting gamers what they want. Graphics cards.
