With NVIDIA’s previous holiday 2013 GeForce bundle having expired with the end of the year, NVIDIA has announced that they will be running a winter 2014 bundle to replace it.

The new bundle will be a simpler bundle, composed of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and a SHIELD discount. With the winter game release lull upon us, Assassin’s Creed IV remains NVIDIA’s flagship game under The Way It’s Meant To Be Played program. This bundle will be for the GTX 660 and above, and is scheduled to run until February 28th.

Meanwhile the SHIELD discount is similar to the discount that was in NVIDIA’s holiday bundle, with NVIDIA offering a $50 discount on SHIELD when purchased with a qualifying GeForce card. After a series of temporary price cuts, SHIELD itself has now had its price permanently reduced to $249, which brings the final price down to $199 when purchased as part of NVIDIA’s latest promotion.

NVIDIA Winter 2014 Game Bundles
Video Card Bundle Shield Discount
GeForce GTX 760/770/780/780Ti/Titan Assassin's Creed IV $50
GeForce GTX 660/660Ti/670/680 Assassin's Creed IV $50
GeForce GTX 650 Series None None
GeForce GT 640 (& Below) None None

Finally, it’s worth noting that NVIDIA has discontinued their free-to-play bundle for the GTX 650 series, opting not to replace it. This leaves the GTX 660 and above as the only cards receiving a promotional bundle from NVIDIA at this time. This latest bundle should keep NVIDIA fairly even with AMD is the $150-$250 space, where AMD has their own Never Settle Forever Silver/Thief promotion going. Meanwhile above $250 this bundle further strengthens NVIDIA’s hand at this time, given the significant price advantage NVIDIA holds against the Radeon 280X and above due to Cryptocoin Mania.

    Yes i read the promotion, but both websites contradict each other. EVGA said purchase DIRECTLY from them for the promotion, amazon.com said games included as well. Apparently by the comments on the card, many did not get games with it, others got a card with one one game, others got a card in box with 3 games.

    I think it was not planned out well.

    Amazon.com help says email the manufacturer for support, so I emailed EVGA and maybe they can help out..

    I thought i would update this, Amazon is AWESOME. Not only am i getting the 2013 bundle (Assassin's Creed IV, Batman: Arkham Origins, Splinter Cell: Blacklist), but they are also throwing in AC: Black Flag as well since it is already 2014! Reply

    Are these promotions for NA only? I've never got anything with purchase of Geforce cards unless it was included in the box (last thing being CoH with the 8800 GT). Reply

    Lol. That's a nice piece of work.
    If you live a little up north however, an uninsulated concrete floor with your air intake at the bottom of your case does the job. Even in summer time the floor stays cool.
    I'm new to Nvidia overclocking, but i think i hit 1147 Mhz stable with the temp not going above 78 degrees. Fan noise was not louder than my case fans. I could push it more.
