AMD Industry-Leading Graphics Enhances Gaming Experiences
The success of AMD's Unified Gaming Strategy is immediately and clearly evident in consoles. All major next generation consoles -- Sony PlayStation 4, Nintendo Wii U and Microsoft Xbox One -- are powered by AMD technology.
AMD also demonstrated its two recently announced leadership graphics products: AMD Radeon™ HD 7990, the world's fastest desktop GPU, and AMD Radeon™ HD 8970M, the world's fastest notebook GPU. To showcase the outstanding features, performance and power of AMD Radeon™ GPUs, AMD revealed a new "Ruby™" technology demo at COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2013, designed from the ground up to demonstrate award-winning Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. Ten years after the release of the first "Ruby" demo, the new version illustrates the magic game developers can create today with GCN, allowing users to experience new levels of detail and features such as AMD TressFX hair and AMD Eyefinity technology. The new "Ruby" technology demo was developed in collaboration with IIIFonic, using the Crytek CryEngine3.
In cloud gaming, AMD showed how it is leading the way by working with industry leaders like CiiNow, G-Cluster, OTOY and Ubitus to deploy gaming technology across the cloud. AMD Radeon™ Sky Series graphics cards enable game developers and service providers to deliver a world-class content experience by allowing flexible streaming of visually stunning games, without restricting users to a single device.
AMD works closely with game developers to optimize PC games for AMD technology and to offer today's most acclaimed and popular titles via the "Never Settle: Reloaded" game bundle. One of AMD's key gaming partners is Nixxes, the developer behind "Deus Ex: Human Revolution™," "Hitman: Absolution™" and "Tomb Raider™."
