AMD TressFX

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
AMD unveiled the new TressFX technology it teased us with, earlier this week. The technology, as predicted, works to create realistic hair rendering and physics; but we imagine it could be applied to foliage and hopefully, furry donuts as well. It will be first implemented in the 2013 reboot title of the Tomb Raider franchise, in which Lara Croft finally parted with her braid. TressFX helps accurately render Croft's hair, drawing finer locks of hair than pre-rendered hair textures plastered on bigger hair polygons that look unnatural. The free and fluid nature of these locks can then be used to accurately draw the effects of wind and water onto the hair. Below are a few before-after instances of TressFX.

Technically, TressFX is a toolset co-developed by AMD and Crystal Dynamics, which taps into DirectCompute to unlock the number-crunching prowess of the GPU (specifically Graphics CoreNext ones), to render individual strands of hair. It is built on the foundation laid by AMD's work on Order Independent Transparency (OIT), and uses Per-Pixel Linked-List (PPLL) data structures to manage rendering complexity and memory usage. DirectCompute is additionally used to process the physics of these strands of hair, which are affected by the character's motion, and elements such as wind and water/rain. TressFX will be implemented at least on the PC version of the upcoming Tomb Raider.

I'm curious how this would affect frame rates, but i have to admit that it adds to the immersion.

look VERY nice.. i really want to see it in motion thumb.gif

1 more detail for better realism in games (badly needed) +1 for AMD

if one looks at lightning in Dirt where amd has such it should run pretty much well on amd hardware.
Titan maybe will equal a 7970 there or even be slower. if one checks the ligthing on dirt as a comparison.

I predict ____ patches and finely rendered ...body parts... with fluid physics.

Graphics cards featuring the Graphics Core Next architecture, like select AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series, are particularly well-equipped to handle these types of tasks, with their combination of fast on-chip shared memory and massive processing throughput on the order of trillions of operations per second.

Woohoo. Was afraid the GPU that hasnt even arrived at my door yet would be outdated already lol tongue.gif

Dead or Alive had...those...more than a decade ago. biggrin.gif

Heck, you could ever set the amount of...fluidity...that those body parts had. tongue.gif Firm or jelly anyone?
