NVIDIA driver support for TressFX realistic hair in Tomb Raider 2013?
Will there be NVIDIA driver support for TressFX realistic hair in Tomb Raider 2013? AMD can already do this. But when will NVIDIA? http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/amds_tressfx_technology_cures_bad_hair_days2013 [img]http://www.maximumpc.com/files/u69/tressfx_hair.jpg[/img]

NVIDIA had realistic hair long time ago. Remember Nalu? This is just marketing trick by AMD to entice people into buying their cards. Maybe after all these years they finally have something to compete with PhysX.

it's not a marketing trick. because this actually is used in a game.

The feature should work with any DX11 GPU. Whether this feature will work on launch day with any GPU will depend on the game developer.

[quote="TsunamiZ"]it's not a marketing trick. because this actually is used in a game.[/quote] And they pretend like realistic hair is only possible with their cards, the very definition of marketing trick. Thank you ManuelG for the information, and proving my point ;)

Dude everyone does marketing AMD and Nvidia too. Nothing wrong with it. This time, AMD took time with the developer to actually do something. I think they can get some fame here and the best of that, everyone can use this game enhancement. Btw do you live in those forums? I can find a post from you in almost every thread.

Oh don't get me wrong I'm not angry :) My English is far from perfect so if I sounded rude forgive me, it wasn't intended. I was just joking a bit because I see you a lot on these forums. (its not a bad thing)

Props to AMD for bringing the realistic hair we've been seeing trickling in since 2004 to the mainstream. One of my biggest disappointments in 3D graphics rendering in more modern games is that, especially with games that have high detail models and lots of rendering overhead, there's been very little realistic hair simulation. There were games near the 360 launch using this kind of technology, mostly fighting games, but maybe now we'll see it actually widely implemented.

Everyone know Nvidia give a **** about DirectCompute and OpenCl for pushing CUDA. So dont say its AMD Marketing about Tress FX. If Nvidia did their Homework we could have a very good Directcompute Power with our Geforce Cards and can Play Games with Directcompute with no problems.
