Also, NVIDIA has been working hard to have a breakthrough in the cloud gaming market with its GeForce, which officially launched. Interestingly, this partnership shows AMD as an advocate in the potentiality of using the cloud for gaming.
“At AMD, we pride ourselves on our ability to push the limits of what technology can do to elevate the gaming experience,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Graphics Business Unit. “Oxide shares this passion and is an ideal partner for us as we expand the way players play, while offering them the quality experience they demand.”
“Oxide’s motto is to bring to life games that have never been seen or experienced before. We built the Nitrous Engine specifically for that purpose,” said Marc Meyer, President of Oxide Games. “AMD’s commitment to gamers and its leadership in the forefront of next-generation hardware is a perfect complement to Oxide’s commitment to the same excellence in software.”
