Super Computer, Inc. announces GameStorm 64-bit technology for gaming featuring America’s Army for the AMD Athlon™ 64 Processor
Atlanta, Georgia --
Super Computer, Inc. today announced GameStorm AMD64 technology to showcase the performance of the AMD Athlon™ 64 processor.
The GameStorm technology represents a new innovative approach to PC-based gaming. The entire system, completely written for a 64-bit environment, fits on a single CD and essentially turns the PC into a “console-like” gaming system. GameStorm auto loads directly from CD with or without any operating system installed and the computer starts up, immediately serving the featured game, America’s Army.
The embedded Linux OS scans the hardware, loads the OS and finally the game directly in one single motion. The experience for the end-user is fast and powerful game play without the usual overhead from the operating systems traditionally used in the gaming industry.
“Its feels like a gaming console on steroids and even allows for online access so you can connect to online game servers for multi-player action” said Jesper Jensen, CEO of Super Computer, Inc., “ With a pure 64-bit environment and no overhead, SCI has created a powerful showcase for both AMD and the GameStorm technology, all in a single CD!”
“The fact, America’s Army available in 64-bit on the GameStorm CD allows gamers to get a taste of the next generation of gaming just by inserting a CD and powering up the computer” said Major Bret Wilson, Operations Officer for America’s Army.
The GameStorm technology for AMD Athlon 64 processors, featuring America’s Army, was created in co-operation between AMD, SCI, NVIDIA and the US Army.
“With the AMD Athlon 64 processor and GameStorm technology, AMD is able to showcase a fully-integrated 64-bit environment that delivers performance and realism to the most demanding gamers” said Tim Wright, director, desktop marketing, AMD Computation Products Group. “AMD64 will revolutionize the gaming market by delivering immersive super-realistic environments. AMD Athlon 64 processors will allow our customers to feel and see the immersive power of AMD64 technology.”
Super Computer, Inc also unveiled the world’s first AMD Opteron™ processor-based gaming server cluster featuring U.S. Army’s ‘America’s Army Game’ earlier this year at the 2003 Electronic Entertainment Expo.
