VSR now supports 3440x1440 monitors

When AMD's Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition released in December 2019 it's 21:9 VSR support was only for 2560x1080 monitors. This weeks 19.1.1 version bring support to 3440x1440 monitors.


I just booted up COC at 5120x2160 which is the true 4kUW resolution and it was playable... just,

It's just as well AMD have a new 7nm Vega releasing next month as the truth is the majority of AAA titles will be too demanding at 4kUW on current Vega models

Crytek Showcases Real-Time Ray Traced Reflections in CryEngine on RX Vega 56

"Technology Reveal: Real-Time Ray Traced Reflections achieved with CRYENGINE. All scenes are rendered in real-time in-editor on an AMD Vega 56 GPU. Reflections are achieved with the new experimental ray tracing feature in CRYENGINE 5 - no SSR.

Neon Noir was developed on a bespoke version of CRYENGINE 5.5., and the experimental ray tracing feature based on CRYENGINE’s Total Illumination used to create the demo is both API and hardware agnostic, enabling ray tracing to run on most mainstream, contemporary AMD and NVIDIA GPUs. However, the future integration of this new CRYENGINE technology will be optimized to benefit from performance enhancements delivered by the latest generation of graphics cards and supported APIs like Vulkan and DX12."

An interesting read, The video's worth a watch too.

It's a very impressive Demo, more so than 3DMarks RT Benchmark.

Is GOG at risk of going under?

Here's a Tweaktown article that was in my inbox this morning.

https://www.tweaktown.com/news/65367/gog-com-barely-making-profit/index.html

Although Steam & a couple of others are more rounded platforms losing GOG would be a shame, I think it plays an important role among the game platforms that's good for us the gamers.

“Rebirth”: Quixel creates a real-time photoreal 4K cinematic | Project Spotlight | Unreal Engine

“Rebirth” is a photoreal cinematic short film created by Quixel to put their Megascans library through its paces. And just to make things interesting, the company built the entire piece to run in real time at 4K in Unreal Engine.

There's some interesting stuff going on with the Unreal graphics engine, If STALKER 2's still coming & on the Unreal engine we could see some amazing enviroments, I just hope they put the work in to make it so.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Even the Unity engine offers great graphics as the Book of the Dead Demo below shows.

There's a difference in hardware requirements between real time rendering in games and making movies though.

But can Unreal deal with A-life, anomaly physics and other gameplay mechanics? I wouldn't compromise with those for a few pesky graphics.

Some say Subnautica's occasional graphics popups are due to Unity.

That looked pretty cool (except for the -as usual-exaggerated grass movement, of course).
