AMD Teases "TRESSFX"


AMD is set to announce a new rendering feature called TRESSFX, calling it "a new frontier of realism in PC gaming". More info will be revealed later this week.

Yeah, Tresemme. Especially with all that hair in the pic. Maybe this new feature is supposed to give realistic hair physics.

Powering the PS4! Anyway, Nvidia already has realistic hair physics in their New Dawn demo from over a year ago.

Doesn't mean much in a demo with one character, I mean beyond being neat. NVIDIA weren't the first to model hair or anything. This is prob. some cool middleware for us to drool over, woo woo.

As a guy who is into good hair, I fully support any sort of new hair-rendering technologies.

Tress is a lock of hair so yeah it's about hair. "Render rinse repeat" makes this sound like the SpeedTree of hair.

Likely related to their order independent transparency solution, which has pretty broad uses, IMO it's a bigger deal than NVidia's GPU particle stuff.

5 minutes! Geesh.....talk about self control. I need to think about baseball or something for that sort of length.

I would like it more if it was TrissFX. More Triss in everything.

Curious what this could be. It has to be part of the major memory management driver update happening soon, considering that there won't be any new AMD videocard hardware for a while.

I never thought about that. AMD is effectively king.
