AMD is proud to welcome Grand Theft Auto V from Rockstar Games as the newest addition to the Gaming Evolved family to feature AMD’s Contact Hardening Shadows (CHS). This technique dynamically hardens or softens a shadowâ€™s edges depending on the distance of the shadow from the light source and object casting that shadow. This means softer shadows that diffuse more realistically. To enable CHS in the game, simply select AMD CHS from the â€™Soft Shadowsâ€™ drop down menu. The game also has a built-in benchmark, which should make it easy to test different hardware configurations.
AMD’s Catalyst 15.4 (Beta) is available for download.
