Even in these trying times, AMD has still been able to boast some impressive sales figures, meeting analysts’ expectations. However, it’s not just sales AMD are triumphing on, they and Oxide Games have come to an agreement to merge their resources in an effort to boost future cloud gaming tech.

Today they announced a multi-year partnership to co-develop graphics technologies for the growing cloud gaming market. By combining leadership gaming hardware and graphics expertise from AMD with Oxide’s proven development capabilities and innovative Nitrous game engine, the companies plan to create a robust set of tools and technologies for cloud rendering designed from the ground up to embrace the real-time demands of cloud-based gaming.

AMD had this to say about the partnership:

“At AMD, we pride ourselves on our ability to push the boundaries of what technology can do so it elevates the gaming experience,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit, AMD. “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 mirrored AMD’s excitement and are looking forward to future advancements in gaming tech:

“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,” said Marc Meyer, president of Oxide Games. “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.”

Oxide Games was founded in 2013 by award-winning game industry veterans and engineers to build games that have never been seen or experienced before by using its’ own proprietary Nitrous Engine exploiting the vast untapped potential in today’s multicore hardware as well as the hardware of the future.
