For those wondering what Vireio Perception's fate is, we have an update! The above is a benchmarking sample of Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor running with the lowest in-game quality settings followed by the highest. The test equipment in this case is an AMD FX 8350 CPU mixed with an AMD R9 390 series GPU.
With the most basic visual quality, the game performs at 60FPS, and drops off to 44FPS in true stereoscopic 3D mode. With the highest graphics quality settings, the game again performs at 60FPS, and drops to 33FPS in stereoscopic 3D mode. This doesn't take into account techniques like asynchronous timewarp to compensate for missing frames in VR.
Still a lot of great stuff to share from CES 2016! Today we have our interview with Roy Taylor, Corporate Vice President Alliances for Advanced Micro Devices. Roy talks about their latest work with Gaze Activated Content (GAC) and their hopes and dreams for the industry and industry collaboration. GAC is not the same as foveated rendering. Very interesting!
There was a time when CES gave out roller bags, then it was full sized backpacks, then notebook bags. Now this! :-)
Today we have our interview with Infinadeck, a new locomotion protype for virtual reality. While it's definitely an interesting approach with promise, this is also deeply entrenched in the research and development phases. See what you think.
