GAMES FIRM Ubisoft has announced a strategic partnership with chip designer Nvidia that will see them tailor chips for games and vice versa.

The French games developer is readying games for release including Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist, Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs and has been waxing lyrical about their graphics on consoles.

The two firms are working hard on PC games too, and according to Nvidia PC gamers will get "the best gaming experience possible" for the titles.

The companies are working together to make game worlds shine and polish graphics using Geforce GTX GPUs. According to those involved they have built a close relationship.

"PC gaming is stronger than ever and Ubisoft understands that PC gamers demand a truly elite experience - the best resolutions, the smoothest frame rates and the latest gaming breakthroughs," said Nvidia SVP of content and technology Tony Tamasi.

"We've worked closely with Ubisoft's incredibly talented creative team throughout the development process to incorporate our technologies and deliver the most immersive and visually spectacular game worlds imaginable."

Words from the French firm are equally enthusiastic, and the talk there is of a "stunning gaming experience".

"The PC remains one of the world's most popular gaming platforms, and we're committed to offering PC players the best possible experience with our games," said Ubisoft SVP of sales and marketing Tony Key.

"Combining Nvidia's visual computing expertise and the creativity of our development teams will give customers a stunning experience when choosing an Ubisoft game for the PC." µ
