The lads over at PCGamesHardware have managed to get a hold of a bunch of screenshots and video footage showing off the upcoming Ruby tech demo for HD 4000 series graphics cards. It's highly impressive and well worth checking out.


After Nvidia released the GT200 yesterday, AMD took the chance to advertise for their next graphics card generation. Thus AMD introduced the Cinema 2.0.


The Cinema 2.0 is based on the Teraflop performance of the RV700 chip. For the presentation AMD used two of those cards, which supposedly were running in Crossfire mode, a Phenom X4 processor (X4 9850) and a 790 FX chipset.


The short sequence from the Ruby tech demo can be found below and we also made screenshots. The tech demo shows several effects, like depth and motion blur. AMD believes, that such sequences could be integrated into games in real-time.
