Vireio Vive Room Scale is on the Way!

Neil's Messy BasementThis will likely make everyone's day.  In today's episode, we:

  • Talk about the new AMD Radeon RX480 graphics card.
  • Interview Kevin Williams (DNA Association) about out of home entertainment.
  • Interview Denis Reischl about the new Vireio Perception Alpha with room scale.

Wha...???  Yes.  If all goes to plan, we will be releasing the next Vireio Perception alpha tomorrow (Saturday), and it will include room scale on the HTC Vive.  However, the interview reveals far more to be excited about.

Also, we've set up a unique article category for the show, and there is an RSS link available on the program page.  We've really been enjoying putting this together and we have lots of exciting things in store.  Have fun!

AMD RX480 Revealed at $199 USD

AMD RX 480 Sourced From Tom's Hardware
There is still much to learn about AMD's paper-launched Radeon RX480 graphics card. Based on AMD's new Polaris architecture, it delivers over 5 teraflops of computing power and features either 4GB or 8GB of GDDR5 RAM. What sets its connectivity apart from the rest is it includes HDMI 2.0b and Displayport 1.3 and 1.4 support with HDR (the first card to offer this). According to Tom's Hardware, the unit runs at a quiet 150 Watts and delivers 1.7 X the performance per watt thanks to FinFET technology.

The biggest selling point? Price. Base unit price is $199 USD - a bargain for a VR Ready GPU that would normally be around $350 to $550 a piece.

According to Engadget, the cards beat out the Nvidia GTX1080 running Ashes of Singularity; impressive when you figure that two RX480's ($400 USD) are $200 cheaper than the single GTX1080 equivalent ($600).

There is something more to be discussed here, and we'll get into it in the next edition of Neil's Messy Basement.

REVIVE, Daydream VR, and Futuremark in Neil's Messy Basement

Neil's Messy BasementSorry for taking so long!  This loaded episode features:

  • An open discussion about the REVIVE hack and what the ramifications are for technology makers, content developers, and ultimately consumers.
  • A discussion of Google's new Daydream VR platform...put to music.
  • Interview with Jani Joki (Director of Engineering) and Ryan McCall (Director of Sales & Business Development) for Futuremark.  They discuss their VR efforts, new mobile VR initiative, and their perspective on where the new generation of GPUs are headed.  Very interesting!

Having loads of fun putting this series together.  We've been working hard to keep it fresh and unique.  Ping us if you have ideas and guests you'd like to see on the show.
