We've mentioned the imminent EOL status of the Nvidia 600 series. Yet even as it goes the way of the dodo bird, Nvidia is still using a few SKUs making them eligible for their promotional partnership with Ubisoft and their impending sly and sneaky Splinter Cell Blacklist coming to PC and console, around the last days of Summer.
Ubisoft encourages gamers noting they have worked closely with the GPU giant so SC Blacklist supports the most cutting edge features such as DX 11 Tesselalation, Nvidia HBAO+, TXAA anti-aliasing and surround tech. Now you have bit more incentive to pull the trigger on a new Nvidia GTX video card. Nvidia states, "...starting today, gamers who purchase a GeForce GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770, or 780 from a Nvidia Participating End Card Partner will receive a free copy of Splinter Cell Blacklist Deluxe Edition for PC..." The operative phrase here being "participating partner". So check with your favorite end card partner (EVGA, MSI, ASUS, Gainward, Gigabyte, etc...)
Malicious attacks are laying low many and more points of U.S. interest around the globe. This is the "Blacklist". Sam Fisher makes his badass return as the 4th Echelon leader for an elite unit specializing in counter-terrorism. Their goal is to track and find those behind the Blacklist attacks. Splinter Cell Blacklist will deploy on PC and console this August 20th 2013.
