AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced the North American launch of its Gaming Evolved title “Crysis 3". Working closely with Crytek, elite AMD engineers optimized “Crysis 3” to enable incredible performance on AMD Radeon™ graphics cards, powered by the award-winning AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. The AMD/Crytek alliance accelerates “Crysis 3” with the world’s fastest1 graphics processing unit (GPU), the AMD Radeon™ 7970 GHz Edition. This announcement comes just two weeks after the launch of the highly-acclaimed “Never Settle: Reloaded” bundle from AMD.

 “‘Crysis 3’ is designed and optimized to be played on AMD Radeon graphics. No other GPU delivers the visual experience or next-generation features of AMD Radeon,” said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Graphics. “Our close collaboration with Crytek means the robust AMD GCN architecture is fully exploited by ‘Crysis 3’ code paths. We set out to deliver the best gaming experience possible for enthusiasts, and frankly we’ve accomplished this through the Gaming Evolved program. The best way to enjoy it is through the ‘Never Settle Reloaded’ bundle.”

"No other PC game taxes graphics cards like the 'Crysis' franchise, and with AMD Radeon graphics at the helm, gamers will experience 'Crysis 3' in stunning visual clarity when settings are cranked to the max," said, Cevat Yerli, CEO and president, Crytek. "The launch of 'Crysis 3' – we hope - is just the beginning of a fruitful partnership with the AMD Gaming Evolved program.
