“SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY! Calling any and all hot rods, monster cars, dune buggies and rocket-powered, jumping vehicles. Come on down and participate in the craziest soccer game of all time!”

 

These are the words I hear whenever I’m loading up a new match of “Rocket League. If you can imagine RC cars turbo boosting, jumping and flipping around a ring trying to bounce a giant soccer ball into a goal then you have a pretty good idea of what “Rocket League” entails. What is less intuitive are the sounds I make while playing. They tend to sound like, “ohmygoshlookoutfortheooohjumpjumpc’monc’monboostboostahhhhGOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAALL!”

The great thing about “Rocket League”, other than the awesome gameplay, is that it runs beautifully on AMD APUs such as desktop processors like the AMD A8-7670K or A10-7870K APU. An AMD APU is a single chip that combines a traditional processor with a dedicated graphics processor in a single convenient, powerful and affordable package. This means that with an affordably priced AMD based system you have all the processing and graphics performance you need to run Rocket League with smooth framerates and plenty of eye candy. Not to mention you’ll also have plenty of performance to handle any of those pesky ‘gaming-time-stealing’ everyday tasks like office productivity or photo management.

 

If you’re looking for a fun and exciting break that beautifully combines RC cars and sports into one thrilling game, check out “Rocket League”. If you’re looking for an affordable mainstream desktop or laptop that can handle popular online games and everyday tasks, look for one powered by an AMD APU. See you on the field.
