AMD launches gaming site

By on September 6, 2007, 8:30 PM
In an effort to refresh its brand among gamers who are increasingly opting for Nvidia products, AMD has just launched a new gaming website, dubbed AMD Game!, intended as a hub for PC gamers to communicate, collaborate and stay in tune with the latest developments in PC gaming. Gamers will get access to exclusive game content, as well as to all the latest AMD drivers and utilities.

A system check is available on the site to test if your systemís performance meets the minimum requirements to enable certain games. Other features include a configurable toolbar to receive customized news based on user preferences, an IM chat feature, and a video player. Looking to boost subscribers, AMD is offering gamers who register to the site through September, a chance to win two extreme gaming systems powered by AMD, the iBuyPower Gamers Fire 1950 and the CyberPower Gamer Ultra 8800 PRO.

I don't know if AMD will recapture the attention of gamers with the success of Intel's Core 2 Duo line of CPUs. If AMD releases their new CPU and it doesn't perform, it will probably be the final nail on their coffin. Most people that I know of don't even bother with building systems that have an AMD processor. I do believe that AMD is needed in the processor and graphics card markets for the sake of competition. Usually competition between companies produces better products. We see...

There's one thing for sure, if it wouldn't be for AMD, the Core 2s wouldn't be here. I agree that we need this on-going competition, although in part it's still killing AMD no matter if their processors are better or not.
