    AMD's tressFX Technology (Pretty Hair in Tomb Raider)

    http://blogs.amd.com/play/tressfx/


    I'm surprised; it's actually a really nice graphical addition to the PC version. I hope more games use this sort of technology in the future as it really does look much better.

    there is a LOT of technology that should be used more then they actually are

    PhysX, being one of the others.

    Epic should licence this tech, their hair in their engine is atrocious

    impressive tech none the less
    adds quite a bit to the scene, especially in windy areas.

    Sadly useless in Hitman games.

    Why would any developer code only with PhysX when this supports both AMD & Nvidia?

    I don't really know if I like it. It's definitely an improvement but it still has that artificial look to it. Maybe it's the lighting.

    With the effect on it looks like she just washed and conditioned her hair but forgot to clean the rest of her body.
