Rage3D coverage of AMD press event at Games Developers Conference 2013


Rage3D attended AMD’s GDC 2013 press event and spoke with key figures to find out more about their Gaming Unified program and where Radeon graphics powered by GCN – Graphics Core Next – are going in 2013.

AMD announced new products like AMD Radeon HD 7990, a dual-GPU video card – the fastest video card on AMD’s Radeon lineup and perhaps the world’s fastest too, this time with a cooling solution newer to Radeon series (but already seen on FirePro series) that’s expected to give whisper quiet operation, accordingly to AMD words.

To heat up competition in cloud gaming market, they showcased the new AMD FirePro Sky Series engineered to bring high fidelity games to the cloud, where a single Tahiti GCN GPU can provide up to six 720p streams at 30 FPS altogether with a newer technology called AMD RapidFire, an open API designed to deliver HD visual quality, low latency and optimal network usage, key factors to the cloud gaming success.
