Now THIS is something to be excited about. Extravalanza is an event that AMD holds at their Markham, Ontario headquarters. Markham is where all their GPU magic happens. The idea behind Extravalanza is AMD opens the doors up to the public and press to showcase AMD’s products and vendor partners. They also hold a fun gaming tournament. It’s a great opportunity to see AMD branded games (some before they are released), meet senior level executives, and check out the latest vendor offerings.
This year, they wanted to have a VR exhibit, so they reached out to The Immersive Technology Alliance to help make this happen. IRIS VR (Technolust) and YEI Technology’s PrioVR will be onhand giving demos to the public on HD Oculus Rifts, and this is going to be a lot of fun. This is a golden opportunity because while there are plenty of conferences and events targeted to the press and professionals, the general public needs to get their hands on this stuff too! We hope to see you there!
