AMD teams up with Blizzard

Written by test

Bundles to come

In a rather unexpected announcement today, AMD has teamed up with Blizzard Entertainment in a sponsorship deal for BlizzCon 2008 as the graphics card provider for the event which will be held in Anaheim this year from October 10th to the 11th.

However, what is even more exciting is the fact that AMD struck a deal which allows it to bundle all of the best games from Blizzard with its ATI graphics cards, so maybe we can look forward to a Star Craft or even Diablo 3 bundle in the future.

Another upside to this deal is that Blizzards games should be tuned to work perfectly on AMD hardware, as Blizzard will get early access to new hardware from AMD.

This is all great news for AMD, which hasn't been very strong when it comes to support from game developers, as unlike Nvidia's TWIMTBP program, AMD's equivalent, The Ultimate Visual Experience, hasn't exactly taken off in the same way. In all honesty, we can't think of any games that display the AMD logo when you start them, but then again, the TWIMTBP logo is just frustrating when you start a game, so let's hope AMD doesn't decide to ask for something similar from Blizzard.
