OCAholic notes AMD also revealed Forward+ at yesterday's PR event. This technology is supported by the latest Rx-2xx series graphics cards and promises better graphics quality.
The Forward+ technology brings hardware level MSAA, and ability to use unlimited materials with transparency as well as ability to use as many lights as Deferred rendering simply a thousand of real-time animated lights in order to visually improve game graphics.
