Collaboration Between Valve and AMD for Easy Updates on Steam

AMD and Valve Steam UpdatesAMD and Valve are collaborating in order to bring ATI Catalyst graphics driver updates through Valve’s huge Steam platform. Users who use Steam will now be able to detect and install the latest graphics driver for their ATI Radeon graphics card, easy and directly from Steam.

The most recent Hardware Survey on Steam by Valve showed that eighty-seven percent of the gamers that are using DirectX 11 are owners of ATI Radeon or ATI Mobility Radeon graphics hardware.

“Steam represents an evolution for PC and online gaming, and the availability of ATI Catalyst graphics driver updates directly on the Steam platform can help further enhance the PC gaming experience for users of ATI Radeon products,” said Ben Bar-Haim, corporate vice president of software for AMD. “AMD now has the opportunity to help deliver an even better experience for PC gamers.”

The AMD Gaming Evolved initiative is a program that represents the commitment to PC Gaming by AMD.

“Valve is extremely pleased to be working with AMD to provide automatic driver updates for AMD’s leading edge products on Steam,” said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. “PC gamers demand the most of their gaming hardware and providing these updates automatically will help ensure those playing via Steam are playing at optimal performance.”
