AMD has unveiled a new Cinema 2.0 tech demo with Ruby at a press conference in San Francisco, this demo shows off the capabilities of the upcoming Radeon HD 4000 series.
Rendered in real-time and interactive, this is a brief video from the first Cinema 2.0 demo, premiered by AMD in San Francisco on June 16, 2008. The interactive demo was rendered by a single PC equipped with two "RV770" codenamed graphics cards powered by an AMD Phenomâ„¢ X4 9850 Processor and AMD 790FX Chipset. The full demo shows cinema-quality digital images rendered in real-time with interactivity. Check back later this summer for a video of the full Ruby Cinema 2.0 demo.

I'm not impressed by the RV770 but the vid looks sweet. ATi is definitely good at making tech demos.

    How could you not be impressed with RV770? it's the second fastest card (GTX 280 wins by about 10%) at less than half the price
