AMD Radeon HD 7900 series brings us closer to Pixar quality graphics; behold ‘Leo’ DX11 Tech-demo

This is simply too good to pass by. AMD has released a DX11 tech demo for its new GPU 7900 series that looks phenomenal. The tech demo is a proof-of-concept technology, with the aim to demonstrate certain rendering methods at run-time.The two main points here are the use of hardware managed virtual texturing (PRT) and? forward rendering pipeline with compute shader based light occlusion, that allows application of hardware MSAA by avoiding the pitfalls of the deferred rendering. And it looks pretty amazing. Enjoy and let’s hope that someone would actually put in good use AMD’s latest GPUs!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
