Nvidia plans to give away Watch Dogs Legion and a Geforce Now Subscription with RTX 30 series GPUs

Nvidia has officially revealed its RTX 30 series of graphics cards, and with them, Nvidia plans to bundle free copies of Ubisoft's Watch Dogs: Legion and a year's subscription to Nvidia's Geforce Now game streaming service.  

This bundle will be active from September 17th onwards, after the launch of Nvidia's RTX 3080 graphics card. Specifications for the RTX 3080 and other RTX 30 series graphics card models are available here. At this time, it is unknown when this bundle period will end, though it is probable that this bundle period will be active for at least a month. 

Nvidia's Geforce Now gaming service allows gamers to access a Geforce cloud PC, which can stream supported PC games to a wide range of devices. These devices include Windows PCs, Chromebooks, Andriod phones/tablets, macOS products and Nvidia's Shield devices.  

Ubisoft's Watch Dogs Legion will release on October 29th, and the game will launch with support for ray-traced reflections on PC as well as Nvidia's DLSS 2.0 technology. These features will allow Watch Dogs Legion to both look better and run faster on compatible Nvidia hardware, thanks to the graphical enhancements of ray tracing and the performance-boosting nature of DLSS 2.0. 

Nvidia's RTX 3080 is due to release on September 17th, their RTX 3090 is due to launch on September 24th, and their RTX 3070 is scheduled to launch sometime in October. All three of these graphics card are expected to be part of Nvidia's RTX 30 series game/streaming bundle.

Yeah agreed. Nvidia is making this launch more and more tough for AMD to compete with in all honesty.Quote

Well this is what we wanted. Perhaps Nvidia feared a repeat of what AMD have done against Intel in the CPU market and didnt want to fall into that trap.

Competition = better value purchases. Of course, its still expensive, but imagine the offerings if there had not been a threat.Quote

The threat of AMD easily dropped a $100 from the starting price. This promotion is an added bonus. Nvidia wants to completely choke AMD. I realy hope AMD got a good deal for console hardware.Quote

well I think its worked regardless of Navi. Unless Navi is released before the end of the month, the hype (regardless of cost) is building rapidly for Nvidia.

However...


Something is odd. I suggest you read the report at Guru3D. He talks about the fact that no leaks occured for 30 series. that is because even manufacturers dont know how their cards perform.

No benchmarks have leaked, how is that possible?
I'll let you in on that secret. The AIB partners have all been prepping their cards for months now. They have the products, engineering boards for a while. NVIDIA however, has not released a driver that works with anything other than the test software they supply. So get this, I am writing this article on September 1st, hours before the presentation, and still, the board partners have no idea what the performance is going to be like. We need to advance on that as the board partners even do not know the thermal capacity effect of their products. NVIDIA has provided them with test software that will work with the driver. Basically, these are DOS-like applications that run stress tests. No output is given other than PASS or FAIL. We know the names of these test applications: NVfulcrum test and NVUberstress test. For thermals, there is another unnamed stress test, but here again, the board partners can only see PASS or FAIL. Well, we assume they have tested with thermal probes. What this paragraph, well, to show you the secrecy that NVIDIA applied for this Ampere project.
I know there are numbers posted by the guy at Digital Foundry, but 1 source globally is odd for sure.Quote
