AMD presented its vision for 2009 at the Ceatec trade show in Japan. The firm told the press that it expects to deliver 40nm DirectX 11 compatible GPU in 2009, with widespread usage of GDDR5 memory. ATI also sees a bright future for GPGPU computing, with the arrival of Windows 7, DirectX 11 and Apple's OpenCL:
ATI also predicts the rise of GPGPU with help of computing shaders of DirectX 11 and OpenCL. In fact, the company expects consumer applications that take advantage of GPGPU, which will emphasize importance of graphics processors among end-users. In addition, the arrival of DirectX 11 and Windows 7 will also play a role in boosting significance of GPUs.
AMD also talked about displays of the future, the firm expects TVs with resolutions higher than 1080p will arrive next year along with "digital walls":
Finally, ATI expects certain improvements in input an output technologies. According to the company’s presentation, televisions with higher than 1920x1080 resolution are set to arrive next year along with so-called digital walls. Multi-touch and other input technologies will also evolve next year, primarily thanks to availability of Microsoft Surface-based devices. 3D stereoscopic displays will also get higher popularity in 2009.
3D stereographic technology and holograms are considered to be a big thing going forward, AMD's Rick Bergman joked that he may not come to Ceatec 2018, but a 3D hologram of him will be there.
