Hair effects... they need to invest more in breast physics :3

Hufandpuf1885d ago

You need to invest more in life physics.

f7897901885d ago

You need to diversify.

Virtual boobs and real ones, at the same time!

TheGamerDood1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

What about penis & scrotum physics for that next-gen, next level of teabagging. xD

All I know is I want this tech to come to consoles, so make it happen AMD.

inveni01885d ago

It doesn't make you sound more mature than N0S3LFESTEEM when you tell him that it's not okay to fantasize. Do people who look at porn need to "get a life"? Boobs in games and porn really aren't that much different. And since 99.99999% of males look at porn, who cares if they like scantily clad virtual characters, as well? It's just eye candy.

Curious to see though if AMD's hair technology is better than PhysX (Alice had the best hair I've ever seen)

ChrisW1885d ago

Hair effects is old and overrated.

Highly detailed particle effects and tessellation are what's in.

inveni01885d ago

I highly disagree. One thing that makes or breaks a world is the characters. The more believable the characters, the more believable the world. And good hair makes a huge difference. Just look at how the hair and character mods help in a game like Skyrim. It makes a difference in completing the whole package.

mistertwoturbo1885d ago

Tecmo Koei is already working on that!

turgore1885d ago

That's Team Ninja's (Dead or Alive) specialty.

Bimkoblerutso1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

...but they're goddamn horrible at it. They seem to be under the impression that breasts bounce around even if the owner of them is stationary.

Knight_Crawler1885d ago

Fox is going to be all over this.

Next gen will make character models look like real people and like you are in a real world so as soon as another shooting happens Fox will blame it on the realistic looking video games.

I have a feeling that next gen red blood is going to be substituted with blue or yellow blood and guns will have a red tip on them.

brettyd1885d ago

@Knight_Crawler Yea but good thing no sane person pays any attention to Fox News.

dubt721885d ago

Somehow all 3 are correct.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

Yeah I think the entire nvidia physx cuda thing has done a good job of crippling gpu physic in the industry. Think if they never bought out agia or whatever there name was and it was more an industry standard. If its open cl it will work on nvidia cards aswell. Amd is pretty much all for industry standards not it only works on mine... Progression

HammadTheBeast1885d ago

DOA5's engine works well lol

Lol all jokes aside thoe if AMD has there own ansew to Nvidias Physics ill be very happy to see it oh and btw Tomb raider already on pre order.

ninjahunter1885d ago

Technically havoc is designed around ATI XD but thats like comparing a paper airplane to a Blue angel haha

karlowma1885d ago

I wish they'd both just use OpenCL. It's such bullshit having features that can only be enabled depending on the brand of hardware you're running.

OpenGL1885d ago

Before DirectX 10 released Microsoft was working on a hardware agnostic DirectPhysics API that was similar to what PhysX is and ran using geometry / compute shaders but it was canned years ago unfortunately.

AMD is a big proponent of OpenCL so perhaps this will be a physics API similar to PhysX that uses OpenCL. It would benefit the entire industry meanwhile AMD hardware based on GCN would likely outperform current Nvidia counterparts just as they do in most OpenCL and DirectCompute benchmarks.

zebramocha1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

You're only saying that because you don't like dx11.

OpenGL1885d ago

hah, actually I'm a big fan of both APIs, I actually wish Microsoft had stuck with DirectPhysics because the kind of stuff we saw in Cellfactor years ago could be standard in PC games today.

shackdaddy1885d ago

Man AMD, you sure know how to keep your customers. I was just about to upgrade to a Nvidia GPU but it looks like I might have to wait...

I hope AMD gets their own PhysX. That'd be amazing.

Conzul1885d ago

Same here man. My gaming rig is 3 years old, was already starting to prototype my replacement build. Hope AMD is going to make a comeback with this, or that it ends up in PS4

FarCryLover1821885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

Hopefully this is awesome.

Off topic, but I helped my neighbor install a 256MB Ati Radeon 9550 ( o_o) yesterday into her old computer. Not sure why she wanted such an old card.

But ATI has really come a long way.

Whoops, AMD*

Hassassin1885d ago

they're soon to come full cycle again. HD9000 isn't so far away (2+ years?) XD

RyuCloudStrife1885d ago

did you install anything else in to her?

TekoIie1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

"Old computer" wasnt enough for ya was it?

profgerbik1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

you'd be surprised depending on what she is doing with it, that will get you by with most lower end games or older games but not so terrible ones either.

I used a 7800gt for the longest time, that thing did me proud. Surprised me with some of the games it even managed to run..
