At E3 2019, AMD announced that it would start bundling three free months of Xbox Game Pass for PC with select Ryzen CPUs and Radeon graphics cards, and now that promotion is live. While it will also encompass AMD's new Radeon 5700 GPUs and Ryzen 3000 series chips when they arrive on July 7, the promotion also applies to 15 currently available products across both ranges.

Here's a look at everything eligible for the promotion:

Radeon

Ryzen

Xbox Games Pass for PC already includes more than 100 titles in its catalog, but that is set to expand in the future with games like Gears 5, Halo Infinite, and Minecraft Dungeons. The subscription service is currently available for a flat $5 per month fee (opens in new tab) (soon to be $10 per month) and is also part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (opens in new tab), which bundles Xbox Live Gold with Game Pass.

If you're in the market for anything from AMD, then this is a nice perk. You'll be able to redeem your code immediately after your purchase, or you can wait to get the three-month ride until bigger titles like Gears 5 launch on the service later this year.

Our favorite computer speakers for less $100

Team Windows Central wholeheartedly recommends each of these computer speaker setups, because they all bring the NOISE and will not wound your wallet.

Bose Companion 2 Series III speakers (opens in new tab) ($99 at Dell)

If you want great sound quality and value, then you want Bose. You too can have room-filling, immersive sound, so Bose says in every advertisement.

Logitech Z313 speaker system with subwoofer (opens in new tab) ($49 at Dell)

The Z313 comes with a powered subwoofer and two satellite speakers to deliver 25 watts of total power. That's enough to fill your room and then some.

GOgroove BassPULSE (opens in new tab) ($50 at Dell)

These are clearly the coolest-looking speakers recommended here, but they're not all flash and guile – these speakers can produce amazing highs and lows, for just $50.
