2014 was a really important year for the development of 4K technology, 4K display’s which were at first available at listing price of +$400 eventually dropping to the entry-level market, be off to a good start. But for many people, 4K applications are still not perfect, there are some soft issues of software, systems and of course the most important thing is to keep up with the hardware performance, especially in terms of graphics. AMD imagines that the advancement of GPU performance is the greatest factor that is pushing 4k gaming forward, keeping in mind PC lovers are now appreciating more pixels, 4k gaming will advance rapidly later on with better fittings and design.
AMD believes GPU Performance is key to push 4k gaming to a whole new level
Robert Hallock AMD Radeon graphics technology department has shared AMD thoughts with GamingBolt website in an interview. He said that the user acceptance of 4K is rising, AMD’s R & D department is pushing 4K progress.
“If you think back to the launch of the AMD Radeon R9 290X, our graphics card marked arguably the first time anyone could reasonably expect to play games at 4K on a single GPU. Sure, there were some games that needed two for peak image quality, but one was and is pretty solid for the majority of titles. We were also the first company to offer full support for 4K SST displays in our driver.”
“4K adoption is very popular amongst the elite enthusiasts, but understandably slower being adopted in lower-end segments. I couldn’t characterize the rates with hard numbers as that’s not my area of expertise, but this is the sense I’m getting from interacting with the AMD community every day.”
“Ultimately, the evolution of GPU horsepower is the biggest factor in driving 4K forward. Graphics being such an important part of our business, of course, you can count on great progress on that front as the years wind on.”
