A Review of GPUOpen Effects

Jason Lacroix, Developer Technology Engineer
Let’s build… 2020

GPUOpen provides a variety of source code projects for game developers of all levels, with a permissive license to allow code modifications and integration into titles to take place. This presentation will provide a technical overview of existing and new graphics Effects available in GPUOpen and detail integration procedures for them.

Effects covered will include FEMFX (a multithreaded CPU deformable physics library), FidelityFX (a series of image quality-enhancement techniques), TressFX (hair simulation & rendering), Radeon™ ProRender (physically based light transport simulator) as well as brand-new techniques not publicly shown before.
