MSI and AMD Prepare Their 'Combat Crate' Bundles

Posted on
MSI has partnered with AMD to bring their new 'Combat Crate' bundles to the gaming market. These Combat Crates are comprised of a Ryzen 5 1600 or Ryzen 7 1700 processor, a MSI B350 Tomahawk motherboard, and, last but not least, a MSI RX 580 Armor graphic card. With the Ryzen 2000 Series processors already out and B450 motherboards probably on the way, the primary goal of this partnership is probably for both companies to clear their last-gen stock. The description on the packaging reads:

The AMD Combat Crate comes stocked with essential hardware you need to push your game to the next level and lay waste to the competition. With a lightning-fast Ryzen processor, powerful RX graphics backed by revolutionary Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition and a feature-ready MSI motherboard - the AMD Combat Crate is the ultimate arsenal for gamers.

Truth be told, a Ryzen 5 1600 processor paired with a RX 580 graphics card is actually a pretty nice combo for 1080p gaming, and 1440p as well, if the user is willing to sacrifice some eye candy. The key here is pricing, and unfortunately, neither company has disclosed the official pricing for their Combat Crates.
