AMD has unveiled its TressFX hair rendering technology by sing Lara Croft’s filthy mane in Tomb Raider as an example of how it works.

AMD has begun teasing what seems to be a new rendering technology called TressFX, which will be revealed on February 26. The name and the splash art suggest something to do with hair, but AMD is calling it “a new frontier of realism in PC gaming” so it’s likely to be something with broader application. I expect a next-generation middle-ware which can be licensed by third-parties, like Nvdia’s PhysX.
Thanks, Evil Avatar.

Bethesda has put up a list of things which could help those running into screen tearing and texture issues when playing RAGE on PC.
Wed, Oct 05, 2011 | 00:10 BST
AMD has released new drivers, available on its website, in response to complaints of screen tearing, texture and performance issues with the PC version of Rage.
According to the Bethesda Blog, Id is working with Nvidia to push out a similar fix. Users are advised to wait for the Rage-specific update rather than upgrading willy-nilly.
Of particular note are those using drivers updated for the Battlefield 3 beta, which will need to be rolled back.
Rage released yesterday in the US and arrives elsewhere by the end of the week, for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Reviews have been largely delighted.

AMD’s announced the Radeon HD 6990M, a chip it’s saying is the fastest laptop graphics processor in the world, up to 25 percent faster, in fact, than Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 580M unveiled only two weeks ago with the same claim. AMD reckons the new Radeon kicks the puny GeThing to the curb when benchmarked on Batman Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age 2, Shogun 2, BattleForge, Left 4 Dead, Metro2033, Wolfenstein MP, The Chronicles of Riddick, and E.T.: Quake Wars. If this sort of thing makes you do the sex-wee, hit Engadget for specs and a PR.
