AMD today joins Firaxis Games in
celebrating the release of Sid Meier’s Civilization®: Beyond Earth™, which features day-one support for AMD’s Mantle graphics API to enable top gaming performance for AMD
Radeon™ graphics
customers.
“AMD Radeon™
GPUs with Mantle are over a year ahead of other graphics companies in
delivering high-throughput, high-efficiency graphics to gamers and developers,”
said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, Product and
Platform Solutions Business Unit, AMD. “As gamers settle in for a marathon
session of Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth, we’re proud that the potent
combination of Mantle and the award-winning Graphics Core Next architecture
effortlessly enable the definitive experience.”
Mantle is a
“low-overhead” graphics API that can help improve performance for gamers by making
better use of multi-core CPUs, streamlining game code execution, virtually
eliminating software bottlenecks and utilizing GPU resources with incredible efficiency.
In
performance testing, the AMD Radeon™ R9 290X GPU with Mantle rendered Sid
Meier’s Civilization®: Beyond Earth™ at higher frame rates than any other single-GPU graphics card.[iii] Gamers
looking to secure Mantle’s blistering performance for their own empires can do
so today with the purchase of an AMD Radeon™ R9 or R7 Series GPU starting at
just $99 USD.
