PC Performance Gains From AMD

Avatar
By acharris7719-09-2013

Due to the recent partnerships that have been made with both Sony and Microsoft for the Next Gen consoles, AMD believes that they will be able to gain an edge in the PC Gaming market. VP of AMD Matt Skynner said the following:

"Because it's our architecture there, it's easier to port the games. And because they're first developed on our hardware, there should be a performance advantage.  They should run better on our hardware. A Couple years ago when we saw how the console thing was gonna shake out, we thought how can we leverage this to a better Radeon gaming solution across other markets."

Even though they will be exclusive suppliers for the consoles Skynner also believes that this will give them a better holding within the PC market. So this sounds like AMD will, in the future, be out-performing Nvidia in the PC Gaming market, unless Nvidia can pull a rabbit out of a hat to tip the scales of balance back in their favour. Let us know below what you think of this news.

AMD has bought ATI in 2006. That brought little change to GPU team.

I cant see how this will help AMD as at the end of the day, every PS4 will use the same architecture, OS, etc and same as Xbox One. PC's will always have variations of GPU's, Drivers, etc so publishers still have to take this into account on PC games.

This is typical marketing BS. Nothing more. And I gotta' say, much as I prefer their tech, AMDs attitude, of late, has been rapidly approaching Mattrick levels of douchebag. Here's an idea. Stop the childish digwaggling and motor mouthing and actually do something. Back it up

Didn't help them in 2006-2007, when their GPU was in X360.
