AMD and DICE have formed a relationship to optimise the performance of Battlefield 4 when played on AMD's Radeon hardware.
"DICE has a partnership with AMD specifically for Battlefield 4 on PC to showcase and optimise the game for AMD hardware," an EA spokesperson told IGN. "This does not exclude DICE from working with other partners to ensure players have a great experience across a wide set of PCs for all their titles."
AMD believes the partnership makes perfect sense given the PS4 and Xbox One are built on AMD tech.
"It makes sense that game developers would focus on AMD hardware with AMD hardware being the backbone of the next console generation. At this time, though, our relationship with DICE and EA is exclusively focused on Battlefield 4 and its performance optimisations for AMD CPUs, GPUs and APUs," AMD said. "Additionally, the AMD Gaming Evolved program undertakes no efforts to prevent our competition from optimising for games before their release."
Battlefield 4 will be released November 1 for current generation systems, with PS4 and Xbox One versions expected at their respective launches.
Given the PS4 and Xbox One share similar hardware from AMD it will be interesting to see if the component maker can turn this into a selling point for PC hardware.
