No BS Podcast #226: In-depth Interview with AMD Graphics Guru Richard Huddy

Jimmy Thang

AMD exec doubles down on assertion that Nvidia Gameworks presents a threat to PC gamers

This week on episode 226 of the No BS Podcast , AMD graphics guru Richard Huddy joins the Maximum PC crew. For those unfamiliar with the AMD exec, Huddy has spent time working at ATI, AMD, Nvidia, Intel, and is now back at AMD. He’s also widely considered one of the pioneers of DirectX. Suffice it to say, he knows his stuff.

In this special edition of the podcast, we pick his brain on a variety of topics relating to AMD. Easily the most exciting part of the discussion is the fact that Huddy doubles down on AMD’s assertion that Nvidia Gameworks presents a threat to PC gamers , most notably by adding lines of code to games that would hinder performance on AMD graphics cards (It’s some pretty damning assertions). We also talk about the recent controversy surrounding the PC version of Watch Dogs, discuss Mantle vs DirectX, AMD’s answer to Nvidia Gsync, 4K, and the future of graphics/graphics cards.
