The new version of CRYENGINE also has improvements for SVOGI (Sparse Voxel Octree Global Illumination), the voxel-based GI solution that was teased a few months ago. But it's the v5.4 update to CRYENGINE that's coming in February 2017 during the Game Developers Conference that has me excited.

CRYENGINE 5.4 will include Multi-Adapter support thanks to DirectX 12, which will allow gamers to use both discrete and integrated GPUs together, as well as better multi-GPU support overall if you're running a pair of NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards in SLI, or AMD Radeon cards in CrossFire.
