During AMD's Capsaicin & Cream event today, the company had lots to talk about - teasing Radeon RX Vega, but they also announced a huge partnership with gaming giant Bethesda.




AMD's new long-term strategic partnership with Bethesda is an interesting one, as Bethesda will better optimize their games for AMD's new Ryzen CPUs and upcoming Radeon RX Vega graphics cards. This means we'll get better PC ports of Bethesda's upcoming games, and since they're the publisher of games like DOOM, Fallout, and the Elder Scrolls series - it means that AMD are now positioned incredibly well heading into the future.


The companies will be pushing to develop and accelerate the adoption of APIs like Vulkan, which means we'll see the full power unleashed from Ryzen and Vega in upcoming Bethesda-made games.
