      We are now officially into the next-gen. Wait! PC is always next-gen.


      If anyone curious, this hair physics is also available on nVidia's DX11 cards.

      I am not expert on Hardware. The only thing I can understand is that Tressfx is AMD's technology in reply to nVidia's PhysX. Lara will have the same hair like this in nVidia's PhysX card like GTX 680.

      CD did better than before with the Series, I mean @anik_lc you got what you wanted. Great storytelling for full on 20hrs of Gameplay

      Even though it got 8.5 from GS they say the Multiplayer was a bust

      and the hair i could make her go there and come here over and over excruciating non-lethal torture just to see the hair swish around Mwuahahaha

      TressFX is not AMD's technology to NVidia PhysX, PhysX was a reply to Havoks physics api, they are codes for doing physics calculations and fyki PhysX sill does most of the calculations on the cpu, some are done on the gpu but most are on the cpu still. ;]. Honestly even people at ocn admit that PhysX is gimmicky at best and havoc is still a better option.

      TressFX is not a replay to physx it's true but physx api was never ever a reply to havok physics too. when Ageia first developed physx, they never intended to make physx as a complete game-physics library(what havok is actually). their main aim was to develop a PPU that can calculate the physics of only a certain elements(which cause significant performance drops when running on CPU) using it's parallel execution units and an api for its own instruction set. later nvdia bought ageia and implemented the PPU architecture inside cuda cores. you can say physx is over hyped but comparing it to havok or other game physics engines is worthless....
