AMD and Virtual Reality Introduction
It seems like AMD is betting big on Virtual Reality.
Virtual Reality with AMD LiquidVR™ Technology
Virtual reality is about to transform the world as we know it. Imagine walking through virtual worlds that seem so real, you feel like you’re actually there – whether it be your favorite game, a recreated moment of history or a far-flung holiday destination. AMD is one of the important companies that needed to come on board to make virtual reality a reality for consumers interested in experiencing virtual reality at it's best. AMD is a well-known manufacturer of PC graphic cards. In many cases with PC Powered VR Headsets like the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive the better the pc graphics card the better the graphics on the headset, and ultimately the higher quality virtual reality people can experience with these headsets.
AMD's pioneering virtual reality technology LiquidVR™ is breaking new ground with advanced new features designed to deliver stunning content, advanced comfort, and effortless compatibility with the next-generation of Virtual Reality experiences.
These experiences can range from simulations, gaming, entertainment, education, social media, travel, medicine agriculture, architecture to real estate, eCommerce and things that we cannot even imagine now. The awesome thing about VR is that we are at the pioneering stage of the technology. There might be awesome experiences already available for VR, but just think where we will be able to go in 20 years from now. We are only starting to touch on the potential of virtual reality and it is going to be awesome to look back in 20 years to see where the technology has gone.
AMD says Virtual Reality is a Game Changer
Check out the video below from AMD, where they explore some of the potential of virtual reality. I personally loved this video as it gives you some insight into some of the industries where it is projected Virtual Reality will create the biggest impact.
AMD Virtual Reality Device Certification
AMD announced that they will have a certification program for VR devices that works best with their AMD LiquidVR Technology.
Both of those devices must be tethered to an external PC to get the graphics horsepower necessary to make their Virtual Reality come alive, especially in terms of the 90 frames per second needed to ensure a smooth experience. AMD also announced a pair of “certifications” to help users choose a system—powered by AMD chips, of course. To make it easier for clients in the future to pick the best compatible VR devices for their needs.
All in all it is good to see that AMD is investing heavily into bringing high quality graded Virtual Reality graphics to virtual reality devices. With AMD on board the drive to make virtual reality mainstream we can all look forward to a bright future for virtual reality. AMD is known for creating high quality graphic cards and I am glad to see that they are specifically focusing on bringing the hardware to the world to make VR succeed.
