We all knew it was coming, now AMD officially confirms its existence by running one of it in its LIQUID VR Demo.
It was spotted by TOMSHARDWARE yesterday in Oculus Rift Crescent Bay presentation which was running an unknown GPU.
Tom’s Hardware reports :
I saw a demonstration of Showdown running on the Oculus Rift Crescent Bay, being powered by an unannounced Radeon R9 flagship ultra-enthusiast product. Those words, in their exactness, were told to me officially, as in on the record, by AMD.
This was again confirmed by a tweet form AMD’s own Roy Tailer
