AMD is pleased to announce that Electronic Arts (EA) will support Mantle, AMD’s groundbreaking graphics API, in three new games: Battlefield Hardline™, Dragon Age: Inquisition™, and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare™. These join an extensive catalogue of more than 40 games that now support AMD’s revolutionary graphics API. All three of these games are powered by DICE’s cutting-edge engine, Frostbite 3.

data reveals that Mantle is universally the API of choice when conducting performance evaluations of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare on all AMD Radeon graphics cards. After months of intense collaboration by AMD and Dice in Battlefield 4 as a beautiful launch vehicle for Mantle, the Frostbite Engine’s implementation of Mantle has never been stronger or more robust. We’re outstandingly excited to see the fruits of that labor once again come to life in PvZ.

PR - May 17, 2014 - 15-Year-Old Scientist Creates Machine Learning Software Tool to Detect Cancer-Causing Gene Mutations

Eathan Han, 15, of Boston was awarded first place for developing a machine learning software tool to study mutations of a gene linked to breast cancer at this year's Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, a program of Society for Science & the Public.

Using data from publicly available databases, Han examined detailed characteristics of multiple mutations of the BRCA1 tumor suppressor gene in order to "teach" his software to differentiate between mutations that cause disease and those that do not. His tool exhibits an 81 percent accuracy rate and could be used to more accurately identify cancer threats from BRCA1 gene mutations. Han received the Gordon E. Moore Award of US$75,000, named in honor of the Intel co-founder and fellow scientist.
