AMD Eyefinity technology for multi-display gaming: AMD Radeon graphics offers the ability to play across five screens for a 180-degree gaming experience.
Gamers will benefit from increased performance and improved stability through AMD Radeon Software updates. The recent release of Radeon Software Crimson Edition is enabling up to 20 percent more game performance, and up to 1.8 times more GPU energy-efficiency than the previous version.
Forward+ rendering optimization for more realistic lighting: MHO gamers will enjoy more realistic lighting without performance degradation using rendering optimizations that render many light sources and then cull and store only those visible to the user.
Beyond the features, performance and functionality improvements, AMD and Tencent also announced a marketing collaboration around MHO in China, including the first cross media "pan-entertainment" contest co-sponsored by Tencent, AMD and Sapphire, including promotions with i-Cafés and university campuses around the country. AMD will also offer customized PCs and AMD Radeon graphics cards for MHO throughout Mainland China.
