AMD just launched a new initiative called AMD GAME! that attempts to bring some of these benefits to PC games as well. AMD will be certifying hardware for two different levels of PC gaming standards, testing compatibility with a host of current and future PC titles as well as offering up AMD GAME! ready components or pre-built systems from partners. An editorial at PC Perspective doesn't see AMD GAME! as a big enough push to help PC gaming out of its rut since it will only be using AMD-based CPUs, GPUs and chipsets in its platforms and calls for the as-yet-useless PC Gaming Alliance to step up and create a similar, but impartial program."
