    The differences are pretty impressive. I wonder what kind of perf hit this will have when you toggle it on.

    i think i prefer the original look.

    wile the amount of detail on the tressFX picture seems to be higher, the same could be achieved using higher resolution textures on the hair but oh well... actually most of the offputting low quality aspect of the original could be fixed with textures / higher poly count on the hair and it wouldn't even tax the system that much more.

    and the added "hanging hair" that is not part of the original hair just makes it look messy and chaotic (not in a shipwreck way but just crappy) not exactly "A New Frontier of Realism" but that might just be the pictures.

    not that Nvidia's effort at hair has been that much better or usable at all.

    Looks amazing. As DarkKnight said, wondering how will the perfomance suffer from this little AMD treat ;)

    You should read the entire description for understand why it is different, basically it is pushed by the wind forces, and movement.. not in the first one.

    better to see it in video or in real time instead of compare 2 statics screenshoots.

    But i agree we are far of the demonstration of the AMD Havocs Physics ( the dancer ), before Intel buy it (and remove GPGPU from it ) ( 8 years ago )

    Look good no, and i wait to see it in movement. ?

    ah so it's like clothes in nvidia's APEX/physx... wonder if they ever applied it to hair since it's the exact same principle.

    but that indeed looks MUCH better.

    Probably not that much, Alice MR hair was just on CPU.

    and just with few sprites, this is more advanced and much better. Idk about perf. impact though, but i presume it would take away at least 5-10fps..

    I hope to see this stuff in more upcomming games :)

    Looks pretty impressive! Let's wait for a video or something but wow. Any chance to see it with nVidia GPU?

    Its direct compute, imo it will run on Nvidia too.

    But 7900 has higher tflops power so im a little worried about NV Fermi GF100/110 performance.

    Looks ok in stills but it may end up looking like rope instead of hair.

    Need a vid...oh and i like the shampoo type ad

    Imo default non TessFX looks like a rope of hair ;D


    Check nvidia's 2010 hair tech demo, im pretty sure it will be something like that, if not better :)

    I dont know what some some of them smoke, but well original marketing for sure for the press.

    This reboot of the series look definitively excellent..

    Such a small thing, but such massive improvements there, beautiful.
