With the success of gaming consoles, the Personal computer – which once was the mecca of gaming – has slightly fallen off the charts as a machine that can handle graphic rich gaming titles.
In a bid to boost the gaming capabilities of a PC, Advanced Micro Devices, known popularly by its acronym AMD has introduced a new graphic software that is touted to be the life boat for gaming on PC. AMD’s Radeon Software Crimson Edition is an operating system meant only to enable the computer to run processor devouring games at optimum capacity.
Those wishing to play a Call of Duty or Batman Arkham Knight know that an average PC is just not meant to handle these games. With its new software, AMD believes that gamers who will prefer the keyboard over the joystick would see the difference in performance for themselves.
The PC gaming segment is still going strong, even though some of the poplar title producers such Rockstar Games have continually favoured the PlayStation or an Xbox over the PC. But still, reluctant to lose the $33.7 billion strong PC gaming market, production houses launch their titles months after its introduction into the gaming console segment.
AMD has equipped the Radeon Software Crimson edition with user interfaces, tools, and a host of applications that work along with a systems graphic hardware to deliver optimum results.
Earlier, AMD had introduced AMD Catalyst Control Centre, which was a predecessor to Crimson and was an answer to Nvidia’s GeForce Experience. With the user interface, the gamers can run a check of the hardware built-into the system. Once the software scans the configuration of the system, it suggests ways to run the game at its peak performance.
Crimson has a note-worthy feature called Game Manager, which shows the entire list of gaming titles installed on the PC and their graphic requirements. AMD has also made the software much faster than its predecessor and has included some few features that connect the gamers with the social media.
AMD claims that Crimson’s is developed to boost the performance of a PC 33 percent, which means that the games load much faster than ever before…
As the primary way that people interact with our products, our software deserves to be viewed as a top priority, and going forward that’s exactly what we’re doing, delivering easy-to-use software that is packed with real user benefits, starting with Radeon Software Crimson Edition,
said Raja Koduri, Senior VP and Chief Architect, Radeon Technologies Group.
Radeon Technologies Group is laser-focused on the vertical integration of all things graphics, propelling the industry forward by driving performance per watt, creating innovative technologies and ensuring that the software supporting our GPUs is world class.
AMD is not satisfied with satiating the demands of PC gamers alone, it has also been pushing for a dominance in the market of gaming consoles. It is pushing Sony to equip the next PlayStation console with its repertoire of hardware in order to break the 2K barrier. 4K is slated to be the future of gaming and with the PlayStation 5 expected to enter the market, AMD is hoping that Sony continues its partnership with the chip manufacturer like it has for PlayStation 4.
