Em­pow­ered gam­ing

GPUs based on AMD's ‘Vega’ ar­chi­tec­ture will power Liq­uidSky.

GAX (Malaysia) - - NEWS WIRE -

Liq­uidSky is an on­line game streaming ser­vice, much like NVIDIA's GeForce Now ser­vice, but in­stead of re­ly­ing on NVIDIA's GPUs, Liq­uidSky is turn­ing to AMD to power its vir­tual ma­chines.

Speci cally, it will be ‘Vega’ GPUs in charge of graph­ics pro­cess­ing du­ties. Thanks to vir­tual ma­chines, PC games can be played on An­droid phones or tablets, and of course, sys­tems run­ning on Win­dows, macOS, and even Linux. This is all due to Radeon Vir­tu­al­ized En­code tech­nol­ogy, which is present in Vega GPUs.

If you're in­ter­ested in ex­pe­ri­enc­ing Vega-pow­ered games for your­self, all you need to do is point your browser to liq­uidsky.tv and sub­scribe to the ser­vice. At the time of writ­ing, the full sub­scrip­tion plans have not been re­vealed, but there's a free plan that pro­vides up to three hours of gam­ing time per day, with ads thrown in be­tween. There’s also a 'Pay-asYou-Go' plan, which starts at US$ . ( RM22 , where ads are turned off, and you get 100GB of on­line stor­age. Last but not least, there are also monthly plans that start from US$ . ( RM 5 , where you get 1TB of SkyS­tor­age and no ads. It's also worth men­tion­ing that Liq­uidSky will give you ac­cess to games that you own on any PC gam­ing por­tal, in­clud­ing Steam, Bat­tle.net, Uplay, Ori­gin, GOG, and more. Streaming qual­ity is cur­rently capped at 1080p, at up to 100 fps.
