Maybe this can held Bethesda bring the bugginess of its games under control…
With the launch of AMD’s new cards this week, it looks like the GPU and CPU manufacturer is taking a leaf out of the Nvidia playbook, and announcing a deal and partnership with a major publisher of PC games. AMD and Bethesda have announced a new multi title partnership, promising to deliver ‘unprecedented performance’ as a result of this union.
“The close-knit strategic partnership will combine hardware, software and game engineering talents at both companies with the creative genius of Bethesda content developers to deliver extraordinary experiences on upcoming hardware architectures,” AMD said.
“This is a disruptive moment in the industry as games demand increasingly more power from today’s graphics architectures to deliver detailed worlds and characters at ever higher resolutions, frame rates, and quality settings,” AMD’s Raja Kodouri added. “Bethesda is an undisputed leader in the games industry and an ideal strategic partner to jointly tackle this transformative period in gaming.”
Meanwhile, Bethesda’s President Vlatko Andonov said that the partnership “represents an exciting and powerful opportunity for Bethesda to further advance game experiences,” and for it to “significantly expand its presence in gaming and VR.”
I just hope that unprecedented performance doesn’t mean unprecedented bugs in this case. We should find out more about the specifics of this partnership at Bethesda’s E3 conference this year, hopefully.
