Armory Staff Posted June 20, 2014 Share Posted June 20, 2014 /files/u154082/richard_huddy.jpgAMD exec doubles down on assertion that Nvidia Gameworks presents a threat to PC gamers This week on episode 226 of the No BS Podcast, AMD graphics guru Richard Huddy joins the Maximum PC crew. For those unfamiliar with the AMD exec, Huddy has spent time working at ATI, AMD, Nvidia, Intel, and is now back at AMD. Heâ€™s also widely considered one of the pioneers of DirectX. Suffice it to say, he knows his stuff. In this special edition of the podcast, we pick his brain on a variety of topics relating to AMD. Easily the most exciting part of the discussion is the fact that Huddy doubles down on AMDâ€™s assertion that Nvidia Gameworks presents a threat to PC gamers, most notably by adding lines of code to games that would hinder performance on AMD graphics cards (Itâ€™s some pretty damning assertions). We also talk about the recent controversy surrounding the PC version of Watch Dogs, discuss Mantle vs DirectX, AMDâ€™s answer to Nvidia Gsync, 4K, and the future of graphics/graphics cards. http://www.maximumpc.com/sites/future.p2technology.com/files/imce-images/rss-audiomp3.png http://www.maximumpc.com/sites/future.p2technology.com/files/imce-images/chicklet_rss-2_0.png http://www.maximumpc.com/sites/future.p2technology.com/files/imce-images/chicklet_itunes.gif Stalk us on the following networks: Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes Become a fan on Facebook Tweet us on Twitter Subscribe to us on Youtube Check out our Windows 8 app in Microsoft's app store Subscribe to our RSS feed If you have any feedback or questions feel free to: Email us at email@example.com or Leave us a voicemail at 877-404-1337 x1337 Subscribe to Maximum PC in print or on Google Play, iTunes, Kindle, Nook and Zinio.
