 Overview

Cloud gaming is soaring to new heights. New AMD Radeon™ Sky Series graphics cards and AMD RapidFire Technology bring the full AMD Radeon gaming experience to the cloud. With consideration for performance, quality and latency, AMD Radeon Sky Series with AMD RapidFire technology helps enable cloud gaming service companies to stream PC and console-quality gaming experiences to any device.

High Density Performance

AMD Radeon™ Sky Series are capable of supporting up to six HD game streams at once1. With AMD Radeon™ Sky Series cloud gaming service providers can maximize existing infrastructure and resources to support even more simultaneous game streams, from casual games up to the most demanding AAA titles. AMD Radeon™ Sky Series products are designed to support a wide range of servers systems.

High Quality Multi-Game Streaming

AMD Radeon™ Sky Series graphics card can support up to six HD (720p) game streams each, and quality is not compromised for quantity. Each of the six game streams supports up to 30 frames per second. With a focus on minimizing latency over the network, users can play their favorite games at HD resolutions (720p) without impacting game performance. AMD Radeon™ Sky Series graphics cards also support 1080p game streams.

AMD Radeon™ Advantage

Raise the settings, increase the resolution, and play the best games on the best hardware. Gamers streaming from the cloud can get the full AMD Radeon™ gaming experience they’ve come to know and love on their PCs or consoles on any device they choose, from anywhere. Experience the latest DirectX® 11.1 games as they were intended, and retain access to unique AMD enabled features, like TressFX Hair, the world’s first in-game implementation of a real-time, per-strand hair physics system that gives characters more lifelike appearances.

 AMD RapidFire Technology

“Secret sauce” is an elusive quality that makes something distinctive or special. It's hard to put your finger on, but you know it when you see it. When it comes to AMD Radeon™ Sky series graphics for cloud gaming, our secret sauce is AMD RapidFire technology.

AMD RapidFire technology is a combination of hardware and software that enables cloud gaming partners to benefit from an open API that simplifies the manipulation of key hardware controls to provide HD visual quality, minimal latency and optimal network bandwidth resulting in a compelling and responsive gaming experience from any device over the internet. In line with AMD’s commitment to industry standard APIs, like OpenCL™, DirectX® and OpenGL, an industry standard API for cloud gaming can help to align the industry around one platform and drive continued innovations that benefit the industry at large.

With AMD RapidFire technology, AMD is also building in support for direct access to AMD Radeon™ Sky GPUs from virtual machines created by leading hypervisors including VMware® ESX/ESXi and Citrix XenServer™, providing greater density and more simultaneous game streams from a single server.

 Features

Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture

Engineered as the world’s most advanced graphics, the GCN Architecture is the industry’s first 28nm GPU design, and was built from the ground up to enable more than unprecedented gaming performance.

High Performance, High Density Streaming

With AMD Radeon™ Sky Series graphics cards cloud gaming service providers can support up to six simultaneous HD game streams per GPU1, helping to maximize available space in cloud gaming data centers.

DirextX® 11.1 Support

DirectX® 11.1 is the very latest in high-speed, high-fidelity gaming and computing. Featuring technologies like Compute Shaders, Direct3D, Multithreaded Rendering and Tessellation, DirectX® 11.1 can enable not just more visually stunning games, but take advantage of all of the features and performance improvements enabled in Windows 8.

Energy Efficient Design

AMD Radeon™ Sky Series cloud gaming cards feature intelligent power monitoring and management technologies. AMD PowerTune technology enables higher clock speeds and better game performance, and AMD ZeroCore Power technology allows the GPU to consume virtually no power when in idle state2.

Passive Cooling

Designed for silent operation, and simplifies thermal design for servers.
