Epic Mega Grants are real!
This program was launched almost a year ago when Epic Games set aside $100 million for Epic MegaGrants. This grant was specifically for teams working on developing games using the company’s Unreal Engine, graphic tools, and open-source software.
Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, has vowed to support and motivate small developers, and not only that he is also committed to giving back the riches that he earned through Fortnite, a multi-billion dollar game.
In this context, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is playing its role to support Epic Games in this program by contributing and giving away 200 AMD Ryzen 7 3800X processors to old and existing recipients.
This hardware giveaway is based on availability and merit. Moreover, they didn’t announce any deadline for applicants and anybody involved in entertainment, architecture, game creation and many other industries can apply for the free processor via online submission.
