AMD has already got a bit of a foothold in cloud gaming, as Microsoft’s Project xCloud runs on AMD silicon, and Google Stadia is powered by AMD Radeon graphics. Now, AMD is also partnering with Oxide Games to further its efforts in the cloud gaming market.
Oxide Games was founded back in 2013 and has been hard at work on its own proprietary ‘Nitrous’ Engine. This particular engine is geared towards unlocking untapped potential in multi-core hardware, with eyes now set on cloud gaming.
Speaking about the multi-year partnership to co-develop graphics technologies for the cloud, AMD’s Scott Herkelman said: “At AMD, we pride ourselves on our ability to push the boundaries of what technology can do so it elevates the gaming experience. Oxide shares this passion and is an ideal partner for us as we expand the way gamers play, while delivering the quality experience they demand.”
Oxide Games’ President, Marc Meyer, also added: “Oxide’s motto is to bring games to life that have never been seen or experienced before. We built the Nitrous Engine specifically with that purpose in mind. AMD’s commitment to gamers and their leadership in pushing the edge of state-of-the-art hardware is a perfect complement to Oxide’s commitment to the same excellence in software.”
