As the site explains, the point of the tools is to foster more efficient game development. To that end, they are readily downloadable from GitHub and can be shared at will among fellow developers.

A couple of the technologies featured are HIP, a C++ interface that lets you create portable applications to run on any GPU, and AMD's LiquidVR, a Direct3D 11 interface that can empower applications with various GPU features, including multi-GPU support. Effects on display include AMD's TressFX for fancy hair and fur, to name one of many.
