AMD Radeon Pro Duo with LiquidVR SKD Being Used to Bring Assassin’s Creed VR Experience to Life
AMD Radeon Pro Duo GPU featuring the AMD LiquidVR SDK has been used to bring Assassin’s Creed VR experience to life.
Starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie is scheduled to release in worldwide theaters on Dec. 01, 2016.
Assassin’s Creed VR experience, on the other hand, is an accompanying film-based live action cinematic virtual reality experience which is being shot alongside the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie.
According to Particle Magic VR, the recently announced AMD Radeon Pro Duo and AMD LiquidVR SDK are core elements in the production of the Assassin’s Creed VR experience. The studio also said that thanks to AMD Radeon Pro Duo and AMD LiquidVR SDK, it was able to recreate scenes from the movie at a high quality featuring high textures and complex geometry:
Creating such a complex and immersive experience in virtual reality demands an incredible amount of compute power. We asked AMD for their new AMD Radeon Pro Duo, which isn’t just a fast video card — it’s engineered from the bottom up with VR in mind. Features unique to AMD Radeon graphics such as asynchronous compute and LiquidVR technology are the actual difference between VR being good and VR being great. We’re using the AMD Radeon Pro Duo and LiquidVR technology across the entire production of Assassin’s Creed VR, and soon you’ll understand why! To enable high end virtual reality experiences requires deep collaboration between creativity and technology, and AMD is helping Practical Magic push the boundaries of possibility in VR.
So far, it appears AMD Radeon Pro Duo will feature 4GB of HBM memory and 4,096 stream processors in each package; for a total of 8GB of HBM RAM and 8,192 stream processors.
As for pricing and release date, the graphics card is expected to launch for whooping $1,500 USD sometime between April and May of the year!
