The House of AMD shared to be “proud” about the partnership, which is said to deliver an “amazing gaming experience”.
Bethesda’s upcoming Prey is said to be optimized for AMD’s Radeon Vega technology, and it will be quite interesting to see how his collaboration will benefit the game running on AMD hardware. In general, games from the publisher suffer from pretty bad optimization, and the recently released Dishonored 2 required quite some patching to get a decent, steady performance. The game’s director, Harvey Smith, acknowledged the performance issues, and pointed out that only the development is to blame for game’s bad optimization.
