AMD is Giving Free Copies of Starfield with all Ryzen 7000 CPUs

Last week, AMD announced its partnership with Bethesda, promising deep integration of Ryzen|Radeon technologies in Starfield. The next-gen space RPG will feature FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 (FSR 2.0), but probably no DLSS. Like most partner titles, AMD is also bundling Starfield with all its Ryzen 7000 processors, including the $329 R7 7700 and the $227 R5 7600:

Starfield will be CPU intensive, as with most RPGs, due to the various damage, status, and reduction counters. Having multi-threaded code that properly utilizes all the CPU threads goes a lot way in delivering smooth, lag-free gameplay. That is exactly what Bethesda is expecting from this partnership.

AMD is currently bundling Resident Evil 4 (Remake) with its Ryzen 7000 CPUs, another partner title with FSR 2 but no DLSS. In stark contrast, most NVIDIA partner titles feature FSR 2, most notably Diablo 4, Redfall, etc. support both upscaling technologies.
