[PC World] PC Game Industry Rocks, AMD Says

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) announced that the PC gaming industry is "blooming," following the industry's positive reception of the company's ATI Radeon HD 4800 graphic card series.

Randy Ho, AMD's channels sales manager of the graphics and chipset business in ASEAN, said AMD has sold around two million units of the ATI Radeon HD 4800 series recently, and that the momentum continues with a growing list of high-performance gaming systems announced by their partner OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), including Acer, Fujitsu Siemens, Gateway, HP, and Medion.

Ho added that Alienware, Falcon Northwest, Velocity Micro, Maingear, CyberPower, iBuyPower, Commodore Gaming, ExtremPC, Biohazard, Puget Systems and other system integrators have also announced systems shipping with ATI Radeon HD 4800 series graphics.

The executive said a lot of their company's partner OEMs and system integrators (SIs) are now delivering immersive game play with the use of the ATI Radeon HD 4800 line of graphics cards. He said the card series is available in numerous configurations, including systems based on AMD Phenom X3 and AMD Phenom X4 processors, as well as Intel Core i7 and Core 2 processors.

"The wide usage of the ATI Radeon HD 4800 line of graphics cards only means that PC gaming is very much alive and growing," Ho said, as he expressed confidence that this year's PC gaming hardware revenues could outdo the 2007 high-water mark of US$43.4 billion. He revealed there are now about one billion personal computers globally.

Across the board, Ho said new designs cater to PC users who want to experience the so called "ultimate visual experience" while playing the latest video game titles, editing videos and photographs, and watching high definition content.

The new OEM and SI designs cover a broad spectrum of choices, from single card configurations utilizing the tremendous performance per dollar leadership of the ATI Radeon HD 4850, through to the fast quad GPU configurations delivered by combining the sheer might of two ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 graphics cards utilizing ATI CrossfireX technology.

Good stuff. Its nice that AMD and ATI have worked out and that they are both on the upswing again. Now lets see some really good PC only titles again.

I believe that if the mess with Physx ever gets sorted out, that will help push PC games above consoles for the rest of this generation of console hardware.

@ the nPidia owners downplaying ATi/AMD. Had this been nVidia, mass butt suckage would ensue.
