AMD TressFX Explained: An Important Stepping Stone In Soft Body Dynamics

GamersNexus: "It's easy to dismiss TressFX as somehow "lesser" than other visual effects and downplay its significance, but it's a very important stepping stone in the computing world's forward progression in gaming. The ability to compute and track thousands of strands of hair without consuming all of the card's resources has strong implications for the likes of environmental graphics and other soft-body elements. Cloth movement and collision could also be revolutionized by tech built out of TressFX -- something we've been dying to see in games that involve quick movements and highly-active characters (see: Mirror's Edge). Dynamic grass in MMOs, for instance, is another such item that has been widely requested in the wake of TressFX." (AMD, Gaming, Hi-tech, Tomb Raider (2013))
