The agreement bundles a PC version of Battlefield 4 optimized for AMD components, which Fudzilla reports will set back AMD the $5 to $8 million.
First unveiled in June, VG 24/7 reported that AMD believes that because its components are also found in the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One enabled the tech company to work with Battlefield 4 developer DICE to create an optimized game made for its parts.
“It makes sense that game developers would focus on AMD hardware with AMD hardware being the backbone of the next console generation,” AMD said.
There had been rumors that AMD and DICE would pair up to optimize all Frostbite games for its components, but the company and Electronic Arts quickly quashed the idea.
Reportedly also a part of the deal, DICE is said to have early access to AMD’s new application programming interface tech Mantle. The API should rival both OpenGL and DirectX, and DICE will look to bring Mantle support to Battlefield 4 by December.
Battlefield 4 drops for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at the end of October and early November, and will launch alongside the PS4 and Xbox One.
