AMD Link brings PC game streaming to Apple TV, Android TV

15 Jul 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

Like Steam Link, AMD Link enables PC users to stream games to other devices. The system has been updated with support for Apple TV and Android TV.

Nvidia has GameStream, Valve has Steam Link, and AMD has AMD Link. The systems allow you to stream games from your PC to another screen over the home network.

AMD has now released updated apps for Apple TV and Android TV. To get started you also need a AMD Radeon graphics card and version 19.7.1 of AMD's graphics software on your PC.

- "For TV support, Apple TV 4th and 5th generation running tvOS 12.x and greater, or Android TV 5.1 and greater are required. Streaming at 4K requires 4K capable streaming hardware and is compatible with: AMD Radeon GCN-based discrete graphics and newer," the company said.

To play PC games on your Apple TV or Android TV you must also connect a game controller. Both platforms support Bluetooth game controllers and later this year, starting with tvOS 13, Apple TV will also support the Sony DualShock 4 and Xbox Wireless controller.

Like Nvidia's system is reserved for Nvidia cards, AMD Link works only with AMD graphics cards in PC. Valve's Steam Link on the other hand works regardless of your graphics card vendor. Steam Link was launched on Android TV in May 2018 and on Apple TV in May 2019 after having been delayed for more than a year due to Apple rejecting the original version.

AMD Link is a free app for Apple's tvOS and Google's Android TV.
