AMD has announced a new initiativeto increase sales of gaming PCs, introducing a new game labellingsystem to better inform PC users and consumers about what games willrun on their system.
AMD Game and AMD Game Ultra logos will appear on relevant AMD-based gaming-ready desktops and laptops.
Tailored for ‘Joe Six-Pack’
AMD Game logo will be slapped on PCs that feature an Athlon X2 5600+processor, 2GB of memory, Radeon HD 3650 graphics, and an AMD 770 orNvidia nForce 500 series chipset or better.
For the real hardcore, the AMD Game Ultra logo will be on systemsthat boast a minimum of a Phenom X4 9650, 2GB of memory, a Radeon HD3870, and an AMD 770 chipset.
AMD’s Director of Marketing for Platform Technologies, Godfrey Chengoutlines the thinking behind the labelling initiative, noting: “We wantto be sure that when ‘Joe Six-Pack’ walks into Wal-Mart and picks up acopy of Deer Hunter Tournament, it’ll play on his PC.”
