If you’re headed to PAX East, we want to meet up with you.

AMD will be at the show in Boston for all four days: look out for our booth on the show floor, where we’ll have a few things going on including the Radeon FreeSync™ Challenge.

You might’ve seen the Challenge at PDXLAN last year or SXSW Gaming a few weeks ago. We’re bringing it back, and this time with a sweet bonus: if you’re a PAX East attendee and try out the Challenge, you have a chance to win this gorgeous 49” Samsung CHG90 QLED monitor which supports Radeon FreeSync™ 2 technology.

The rules are simple:

  • If you’re a PAX East attendee, swing by our booth and the Radeon FreeSync Challenge area—we’ll give you a piece of token to hang onto
  • Play Ubisoft’s Far Cry® 5 on our two systems: one with a Radeon FreeSync-capable monitor and one without
  • Drop your token into the box beside the system/monitor you preferred

That’s it! Once you do that, you’re then eligible to drop in your name and email to enter. We’re choosing a random winner after the show wraps up, so we’ll give you a shout if you’re the lucky winner.

See you there!

Radeon FreeSync™ Challenge at PAX Sweepstakes
Official Rules
This sweepstakes requires the use of a Web-enabled mobile device.  Message and data rates may apply.
The Radeon FreeSync™ Challenge at PAX Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes”) is sponsored by Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., 2485 Augustine Drive, Santa Clara, CA 95054, United States (“AMD” or “Sponsor”).
The Sweepstakes is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Penny Arcade, Inc.
  1. Eligibility: The Sweepstakes is open only to anyone who is at least 18 years of age (or at least the minimum age of majority in their place of residence, whichever is greater) as of the start of the Entry Period (defined below), and who submits a valid Entry (as defined below) (“Participant”). The Sweepstakes is open to residents of the United States only. Employees of Sponsor, its subsidiaries, affiliates and agents, as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, children, and domestic partner) and household members of each such employee are not eligible. The Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited.  Participation constitutes Participant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes.  Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.  These Official Rules will be posted on FreeSync™-challenge-at-pax-east.  Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any Participant if Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that Participant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt of prize would violate local law or cause damage to the reputation of AMD and/or any other party.  Participant may be required to submit proof of eligibility.
  2. Entry Period: The Sweepstakes begins on April 5, 2018 at 9:00:00 AM Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends on April 8, 2018 at 11:59:59 PM ET (“Entry Period”). Sponsor’s server is the official timekeeping device for the Sweepstakes. Entries that are submitted before or after the Entry Period will be void.
  3. How to Enter: Participant must be a registered attendee and present at the PAX East Conference, taking place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts on April 5, 2018 through April 8, 2018 (“Conference”) in order to participate in the Sweepstakes. During the Entry Period, Participant will need to visit the AMD booth at the Conference and follow the instructions at the booth to submit an Entry. To earn one (1) Entry into the Sweepstakes, Participant must submit a vote for one of two AMD systems at the AMD booth per the Entry requirements (“Requirements”).  Each compliant vote by an eligible Participant is an “Entry”. To be a compliant Entry, a Participant must:
  1. Visit the AMD booth at PAX East to participate in the Radeon FreeSync™ Challenge.
  2. Participant will receive a token before beginning the Radeon FreeSync™ Challenge. The token is equivalent to one (1) vote.
  3. Play a game on two different systems at the AMD booth for two to three minutes per system. One system will include a Radeon FreeSync™ monitor and one will include a Radeon FreeSync™-disabled monitor. Both monitors will be unmarked.
  4. After playing the game on both systems, vote for Participant’s preferred system by placing the token into the box corresponding to the preferred system.
  5. Complete the paper form by providing Participant’s name and email address and submit the completed form to a representative at the AMD booth. A completed form will constitute Participant’s Entry into the Sweepstakes.
Failure to provide the required information will void the Entry.  Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for lost, late, stolen, incomplete, inaccurate, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Entries, all of which will be void.
Limit: Limit one (1) Entry per person, per email address, per household.  Any Entries that do not comply with the above Guidelines will not be eligible to win a prize.  Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any Entry that it finds unlawful, or in violation of these Official Rules, in Sponsor’s sole discretion.
Multiple Participants are not permitted to share the same email account.  Any attempt by any Participant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple Entries, identities, or any other methods will void that Participant’s Entry and that Participant may be disqualified.  Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.  In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email account used will be deemed to be the Participant.  The authorized account holder is the natural person assigned the name used to register for the email account, as that is determined by the Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.  Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder.
  1. Drawing: Sponsor will randomly select the three (3) potential winners from all eligible Entries received during the Entry Period, on or about April 8, 2018 at approximately 9:00:00 AM ET. The potential winners will be notified by the email address submitted in the Entry on approximately April 9, 2018. Within twenty-four (24) hours of the Sponsor’s email notification, potential winner must supply Sponsor with any requested information for the administration of the Sweepstakes. Potential winners may be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release (“Affidavit”), except where prohibited by applicable law.  The requested information must be received by Sponsor within three (3) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent in order to claim their prize.  If a potential winner fails to execute and return the Affidavit within the required time period, fails to provide any requested information within the required time period, or the prize or notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential Sweepstakes winner will be disqualified and forfeits the prize.  Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules.  In the event that a potential Sweepstakes winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, even if the disqualified potential winner’s name may have been publicly announced.  Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.  Prizes will be distributed to the winner within thirty (30) days of receipt of the winner’s completed Affidavit upon completion of the sweepstakes.  Failure to comply with any term or condition in these Official Rules may result in disqualification at Sponsor’s sole discretion.  Potential winner(s) may waive their right to receive a prize, in which case an alternate winner may be selected in the manner described above. Allow 4-6 weeks for shipment of prize.
Prizes: ONE (1) PRIZE TOTAL: Samsung CHG90 Radeon FreeSync™ monitor. The approximate retail value of the prize is $1,070.00 USD.  Offer is subject to geographical limitation. Prices and exchange rates may vary, and dealer may sell for less.  All aspects of the prizes not noted above (e.g., color, style, size, etc.) will be selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion.  Prize must be accepted as awarded and may not be transferred, substituted or redeemed for cash or otherwise, except at Sponsor’s sole discretion or as contemplated herein.  No cash or other substitution permitted except at Sponsor’s sole discretion, and Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater monetary value if the prize, or any component of the prize, cannot be awarded for any reason.
Winners are responsible for all taxes, if any, associated with prize receipt and/or use.  Sponsor is responsible only for prize delivery; not responsible for prize utility, quality or otherwise.  If required, any applicable forms will be filed with the appropriate taxing authority.  Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period.
  1. Release: By participating, Participants agree to release and hold harmless Sponsor, PAX, and each of their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, advertising/promotion agencies, and prize suppliers, and each of their respective parent companies and each such company’s officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property, arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize.
  2. Privacy and Publicity: Except where prohibited by applicable law, participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes each winner’s consent to Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of winner’s name for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further payment or consideration including, but not limited to, posting winner lists online.
  3. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to terminate, amend, suspend, or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures, human error or any other factor impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if, for any reason, the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, including infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes beyond the control of Sponsor which corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of this Promotion, the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual who tampers with the Entry process. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.  Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.  The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision.  If any provision of the Official Rules is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable, then the Official Rules shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or unenforceable provision was not contained therein.  All Entries become the property of Sponsor, and none will be returned.
  4. Limitations of Liability: The Released Parties are not responsible, to the extent permitted by law, for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by Participants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Sweepstakes; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of Entries; or (5) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from Participant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason a Participant’s Entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, Participant’s sole remedy is another Entry in the Sweepstakes, if it is possible. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
  5. Disputes: Except where prohibited, Participant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Sweepstakes or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the United States District Court for the Northern District of California or the appropriate California State Court located in Santa Clara County, California; (2) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Sweepstakes, but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (3) under no circumstances will Participant be permitted to obtain awards for, and Participant hereby waives all rights to claim, indirect, punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the Participant and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of California. Some jurisdictions do not allow for limitations of certain remedies or damages and so this provision may not apply to you.
