Streaming, New Tech & Features
The gaming market is filled with so many different things these days, compared to the 90s when I was gaming like a mad teenager that didn't need Redbull to stay up all night and get my Quake fix. We have Twitch streaming where 1.7 million active broadcasters are on Twitch per month, with 100 million viewers.
These are some pretty crazy numbers, considering Twitch has only been around for a few years, and I can still hear the echo of parents from yesteryear, and unfortunately even from today "but Johnny, you can't make money playing those damn games!".
Vulkan & DX12
While it stands, Vulkan and DX12-powered games are few and far between, but there are some exciting ones on the way. Right now, we have Hitman and DOOM, but soon we'll have Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Battlefield 1, which will cement AMD's position in the post-DX11 world I hope will soon emerge from the ashes.
AMD has been dominating the Vulkan side of things, with improved performance in games like DOOM with up to 30% more performance. That's not a bad improvement over the OpenGL version of the game and is a free bonus to the Radeon RX series graphics cards.
