Promotional material on Ebuyer suggests that current and last-gen AMD graphics cards will soon be bundled with a copy of The Last of Us Part 1. Eligible products include the Radeon RX 7900 XTX, 7900 XT and the entire Radeon RX 6000 lineup.
Update: The promotion has shown up on AMD’s official website.
With the remaining RDNA 3 (Radeon RX 7800 XT, 7700 XT, etc.) scheduled to launch in June 2023, AMD plans to sweeten the pot for gamers by throwing in a copy of The Last of Us Part 1. Videocardz spotted the upcoming promotion on Ebuyer, a UK-based electronics retailer.
The promotion will apply to all last and current-gen AMD graphics cards, including the Radeon RX 7900 XTX, 7900 XT, 6900 XT, 6800 XT, 6700 XT, 6600 XT, their non-XT and xx50 counterparts. Even the low-end RX 6500 XT and 6400 XT are included, although they’ll probably have a hard time running The Last of Us Part 1.
Initially scheduled for a March 3 launch, The Last of Us Part 1 will be available to PC gamers via Steam and the Epic Games Store on March 28. The critically-acclaimed title is the first of its series to debut on PC, and it’ll be interesting to see how it compares against its PS5 version.
Whether or not a copy of The Last of Us Part 1 will help sell more AMD graphics cards remains to be seen. RDNA 3 has yet to establish its presence in Steam’s hardware database, and the situation is unlikely to change until more SKUs appear on the market.

I’ve been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I got my first writing gig at the age of 19. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry and a few other publications like Wccftech before joining Notebookcheck in November 2019. I cover a variety of topics including smartphones, gaming, and computer hardware.
