Radi­an Arc and Black­nut have deve­lo­ped a turn­key solu­ti­on for cloud gam­ing uti­li­zing AMD Rade­on PRO V520 GPUs and AMD EPYC CPUs to harness a high-per­for­mance gam­ing archi­tec­tu­re, deli­ver­ed across ISPs inclu­ding 5G networks.

‚ÄúGam¬≠ing is intrin¬≠sic to AMD, whe¬≠ther we are deli¬≠ve¬≠ring CPUs and GPUs for the latest game con¬≠so¬≠les or high-end gam¬≠ing PCs,‚ÄĚ said Jeff Con¬≠nell, cor¬≠po¬≠ra¬≠te vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent, Visu¬≠al and Cloud Gam¬≠ing, AMD. ‚ÄúWorking with Black¬≠nut and Radi¬≠an Arc, AMD GPUs and CPUs are expan¬≠ding their gam¬≠ing pre¬≠sence by powe¬≠ring high-per¬≠for¬≠mance cloud gam¬≠ing solu¬≠ti¬≠ons that can be deli¬≠ver¬≠ed through ISPs, tel¬≠cos and more.‚ÄĚ 

‚ÄúCloud gam¬≠ing requi¬≠res careful¬≠ly sel¬≠ec¬≠ted com¬≠pon¬≠ents that can¬≠not be found in tra¬≠di¬≠tio¬≠nal cloud pro¬≠vi¬≠ders as well as the exper¬≠ti¬≠se to ope¬≠ra¬≠te them effi¬≠ci¬≠ent¬≠ly and world¬≠wi¬≠de,‚ÄĚ said Pas¬≠cal Man¬≠chon, CTO, Black¬≠nut. ‚ÄúWe are see¬≠ing a gro¬≠wing demand from our dis¬≠tri¬≠bu¬≠ti¬≠on part¬≠ners for such opti¬≠mi¬≠zed ‚ÄėPer¬≠for¬≠mance vs Cost‚Äô solu¬≠ti¬≠ons to deploy cloud gam¬≠ing ser¬≠vices and that is what we deli¬≠ver¬≠ed with Radi¬≠an Arc and AMD.‚ÄĚ
