AMD and PC Gamer joined forces once more and brought the Radeon rebellion to PAX West. Along with the #BetterRed uprising, the booth featured new hardware, hands-on experiences with new games, tons of free swag and one-on-one time with two pro players from the Evil Geniuses DOTA 2 team (6th ranked DOTA 2 team globally, 2nd in the U.S.).
AMD brought their customary highpowered systems from its top partners, but the hardware emphasis this time was on the newly released Radeon graphics cards. Attendees got several chances at the daily raffles to win some awesome processors and GPUs to upgrade their systems at home.
Players experienced AMD’s pioneering LiquidVR technology in the Oculus Rift consumer VR headsets playing Gunjack.
Fans lined up for an autograph session with PPD and Universe from the Evil Geniuses and even got the chance to play against the pro players in a DOTA 2 match of their own. Lastly, exotic-enthusiast PC builds with unique setups, like a 4-way crossfire Radeon R9 Fury X graphics setup, showcased highly anticipated games from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Doom.
