AMD: Frostbite 3 partnership won't 'prevent our competition from optimizing' pre-release

As previously noted, AMD has chips in both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. However, AMD points out that their deal does not affect all forthcoming Frostbite games. "At this time, though, our relationship with DICE and EA is exclusively focused on Battlefield 4 and its performance optimizations for AMD CPUs, GPUs and APUs.
