    AMD today announced an agreement with GameFly, Inc., to give gamers who leverage the quality and performance of AMD CPUs and APUs easier access to GameFly's leading online video game rental and PC download services for a limited time. Gamers purchasing select AMD A-Series APUs, AMD Athlon II CPUs, AMD Phenom II CPUs or AMD FX Series CPUs in regions where GameFly is accessible receive a free, 30-day GameFly membership as well as a 20 percent discount on a new PC game purchase via the new GameFly PC store.

    "AMD draws inspiration from gamers, game developers and the PC gaming industry," said John Taylor, director of Global Product and Technology Marketing at AMD. "Hand-in-hand with the AMD Gaming Evolved program, we continue to listen to gamers and fulfill our 'Gamers Come First!' pledge. AMD's close affiliation with GameFly shows our gratitude to gamers and to GameFly for recognizing how AMD represents best-in-class PC gaming experiences."

    "GameFly is excited about its agreement with AMD because we've recently expanded into the PC gaming market with our robust new digital client," said Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and SVP of Business Development and Content. "We strive to deliver the best consumer experience and we believe AMD's innovative technology and dedication to the PC gaming community amplify our mission as we continue to cater to our customers and enhance the value of our services."

    AMD processors provide high-quality gaming experiences with high-definition entertainment, advanced multitasking performance and power-saving innovations. The Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) combines multi-core CPU and Premium AMD Radeon graphics processing cores in a single chip, enabling breakthroughs in visual computing, performance-per-watt and device form factor. AMD FX Series CPUs recently achieved the Guinness World Record for the "Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor." The AMD FX Series CPU offering include an eight-core desktop processor, enabling extreme multi-display gaming, mega-tasking and HD content creation for PC and digital enthusiasts.

    I'd rather they drop the prices the equivalent of what the licensing agreement cost per cpu.

    They've already done this on Steam so its not surprising to be going after other gaming services too.
