THE FIRST AMD GAME PC has been tried and tested according to an Israeli news site, which says it will definitely give the competition a run for their money.

Ynet, the Israeli news site belonging to Yediot Aharanot, claims that Tech Data, an Israeli computer distributor, gave it a prototype of a new AMD Game! machine to play around with before anyone else got their grubby paws on it.

AMD announced it would be launching a new badge for computers called AMD Game! (sic), based on the Spider and Cartwheel gaming platforms. The new machines are supposed to fall within the $600-$1500 price range, which AMD is convinced will make its machines an attractive option to serious gamers and multimedia fanatics.

The prototype computer used AMD hybrid graphics and the review noted that the HD3200 (AMD 780G) offered double the power of Intel's X3500 GMA.

Tech data told Ynet that it would be selling the machines with Vista pre-installed as the default operating system.

A Ynet reviewer wrote "Older games ran very well on it, Vista Ultimate ran on XP". Whatever that means!

Ynet summed up to say that AMD's hybrid graphics are very far from being just a novelty or sideline item and that the Cartwheel platform does deliver on the company's promises.

Price and quality wise, the Ynet reviewers reckon the new AMD Game computers would most definitely give both Intel and Nvidia a run for their money and that it would represent very strong competition in the competitive gaming market.

It added that AMD seemed to be much better placed with this new product than it had been a year ago, so there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel.
