AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announced, in conjunction with game developers Stardock and Oxide Games, the completion of initial optimization of “Ashes of the Singularity” for AMD Ryzen desktop processors resulting in significant performance increases.

The popular game title demonstrates performance increase in game play and up to 30% increase, this increase placing AMD Ryzen 7 1800X in elite performance levels for the game.1


Stardock (is a developer and publisher of PC games and desktop software founded in 1991 by nationally recognized technology expert Brad Wardell) and Oxide (Oxide games was founded in 2013 by industry veterans Tim Kipp, Dan Baker, Marc Meyer, Brian Wade and Brad Wardell) games are premier participants in the AMD Ryzen game development program that spans numerous significant game development houses and titles.


According to Jim Anderson, SVP and GM of the Computing and Graphics Business at AMD. “WE are very pleased with the results, not just because of the statement it makes about incredible AMD performance headroom, but more importantly what it means for fans of ’Ashes’  -a state-of-the art implementation of DirectX® 12 in areal –time strategy game.” 


Of course, the CPU is only one half of the PC picture, you ‘ll also need the best graphics card to support your shiny new processor. Admittedly the Zen architecture is arguably doing the same thing, pushing the industry forwards towards a cheaper multi-core future, and AMD have also made moves to shore up the single-core performance of their latest chips. The question for us is how much does the price of Ryzen 7 1800X close the gap with their Intel competition when it comes to primarily single-threaded gamin performance?
