ATI Radeon HD 2000 Series: Incredible Videos and Real-Time Demos

These video clips are taken from AMD most recent product demos which all run in real-time on a Radeon HD 2000 series product.

Ruby: Whiteout
Ruby's latest adventure takes place in a rugged, mountainous terrain where her skills as a snowboarder are tested and may just save her life. This fast paced, action packed demo exploits the power of the ATI Radeon HD 2900XT to create a rich and expansive landscape of snow, rock, and ice. From the procedural snow accumulation on the harsh terrain to the wrinkles on Ruby's brow and the physics that drive each strand of fur on Ruby's fur collar, the ATI Radeon HD 2900XT can handle it all.

Tessellation:
The tessellation support contained in all the ATI Radeon HD 2000 series allows for the generation of highly detailed geometry from simple base meshes and displacement maps. This feature enables game developers to significantly raise the visual quality and complexity of their titles while lowering the cost of development. Tessellation offers a number of benefits in addition to increased geometric complexity - including more animation data, higher quality animation and stable, predictable performance. Tessellation is also an effective method of compression for both vertex and animation data giving both memory and storage savings.

The story is too old to be commented.

After seeing Xenos in 360 I was waiting this long for R600(I thought since it is second generation of unified shaders for ATI, they should be good) and it has seriously bombed, half a year late, still slower and crapppy drivers and image quality. Not to mention temp and power problems. I finally decided to put 100 more and get pre-overclocked 8800GTX. If ATi didnt fail like this,NVIDIA couldnt be marketing ultras for 800-1000 bucks

HD 2900 almost reminds me of 5800

you have to admit though, it doesnt really happen often, ATI normally make very good quality cards

im not impressed at all this card was supposed to be amazing but it still doesnt even beat the 8800gtx and it came out months after its kinda sad on AMDs part that they couldnt beat NVidia with all that extra time

with the advent of the ati hd 2000 series, 8800 gpu prices should drop, lol! now that's gonna benefit us all, good competition, lower prices! i hope im not wrong.

gta_cb3696d ago

should do, but theres alot of negativity for AMD/ATI at the moment.

gta_cb3696d ago

well the first thing i am going to be upgrading is my CPU to multi core. then the GPU+Ramm so i wont be effected by this as when i come to upgrade hopefully there will be newer cards out. (as they normally nearly double there power every half to a year, and with Nvidia already having theres out for a while it should spead AMD/ATI aswell =D

i'm glad i got my 7800GTX when it first came out, which is already out of date now and needs another in sli just to run things now. sigh, if there's something I hate about PCs, it's that it only takes a month for things to go out of date. I was pimp for a week, now my computer gets smoked and i can't run the new games at top settings. This is also probably why PCs will never go mainstream because I don't know that many people that'll spend thousands a year just to play a few top quality games.

dude you are wasting your money, 7800GTX still costs 200-300 bucks, recommend 8800GTS 320MB for you, costs 230-300 bucks, it will beat 7800GTX sli. As for PCs and gaming, there will always be Counter Strikes and WoWs for it that will attract a lot of people.
