The future of hair is here. AMD launched a new teaser site today with the headline, "TressFX: A New Frontier of PC Realism" and an unveiling date of February 26 for their new tech. "Render. Rinse. Repeat." Just off of word association, along with the teaser image found in the header, it's clear AMD's got some new hair technology they're excited about showing.
Resident techy and our communications guru here at Neo, Mr. Gabe, says the word is AMD's got some fresh particle effect and tessellation systems to handle realistic hair volume. Much preferable to, say, typical polygonal LEGO hair. Obviously, this is one of the reasons male protagonists are preferred in video games -- short hair. Good to see AMD taking steps to break the status quo.
Look forward to more news on Tuesday, tomorrow, when AMD unveils TressFX in all of its flowing, beautiful glory. Hopefully with a mind-blowing tech demo involving a space marine taking off his helmet and revealing his luxurious locks, gracefully blowing in the wind. Or, you know, Lara Croft. That would work too.
