AMD's upcoming Vega-based graphics cards will be called Radeon RX Vega

AMD and Bethesda are bound to alter games, adapting them for Vega and Ryzen. The crux is primarily to implement Vulkan, the open DirectX 12 alternative that rose from the ashes of AMD's Mantle technology, as well as "the computing and graphics power of AMD Ryzen CPUs [and] Radeon GPUs".

Moving on, since the last GDC AMD has been working on some new deals and partnerships, which they have announced at this year's Capsaicin event.

"The close-knit strategic partnership will combine hardware, software, and game engineering talents at both companies with the creative genius of Bethesda content developers to deliver extraordinary experiences on upcoming hardware architectures".

Among the top titles released by the company are the "Fallout 3", "Fallout 4", "The Elder Scrolls" series, "Doom", "Dishonored", and "Quake". This announcement also gives credence to the rumour that the publisher's upcoming game Prey could have a tie-in with AMD's Vega.

Forward rendering isn't a new technique.

"AMD has been on a continuous mission to make VR accessible to as many people as possible, and the forward rendering path in Unreal Engine 4 is a big step in that journey", said Raja Koduri, Senior Vice President and Chief Architect, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD. Thus the advanced lighting features, such as screen-space reflections, that deferred rendering brings to the table are untenable for VR applications. LiquidSky, like GFN, allows you to stream full-blown PC games from its cloud servers to any PC, Mac, or Android device-even ones that couldn't otherwise play games.

AMD showed high-end VR games such as Survios' Sprint Vector VR racing game. Game streaming service LiquidSky also said it plans to stock up its data centers with Vega-based graphics cards, meaning subscribers will be playing PC games running on Vega-based virtual PCs when the cards go retail.

However, we didn't just get a name for Vega-based GPUs.

During their Capsaicin & Cream event, AMD explained that the High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC) is supposed to increase game performance significantly. Vega-based graphics chips will take advantage of the technology and speed the performance of demanding games such as Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
