AMD Cinema 2.0 Demo
At a press conference held on June 16, 2008, in San Francisco, AMD demonstrated a milestone achievement in ultra-realistic and interactive visual computing through the processing power of its ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics cards. The demonstration of what AMD terms the “Cinema 2.0 experience,” highlighted at www.amd.com/cinema2, punches a sizeable hole in the sensory barrier that separates today’s visionary content creators and the interactive experiences they desire to create for audiences around the world. The Cinema 2.0 demo shows the fusion of dynamic real-time interactivity with convincing cinematic digital effects that appear to be real places and things.
The Cinema 2.0 demo system in San Francisco featured two ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics cards rated at one teraFLOPS each, driven by an AMD Phenom™ X4 9850 quad-core processor and AMD 790 FX Chipset.
