AMD FirePro™ professional graphics deliver unmatched technology advantages for Autodesk® 3ds Max® and Maya® artists

OPENCL™ ACCELERATED BULLET PHYSICS AND DEFORMERS

First introduced in 2011, the MayaBullet plugin is a fast, open-source physics solver. Built from the Bullet library created by technical academy award recipient Erwin Coumans and GPU-accelerated via OpenCL™, the plugin is capable of creating highly realistic dynamic and kinematic simulations.

Artists working in pre-visualization or visual effects benefit from powerful, built-in dynamics tools, while game developers can use the Bullet kernel to create physics solutions that scale easily across multiple platforms: from PCs to next-generation consoles.

INTUITIVE, NATIVE STEREOSCOPIC WORKFLOW INSIDE 3DS MAX

Maya also comes with a powerful built-in stereoscopic toolset – something that benefits users of Autodesk 3ds Max software. Launched with 3ds Max 2015, the feature enables artists to create and visualize stereoscopic content using the same fast, intuitive, end-to-end workflow.

The release adds a new Stereo button to 3ds Max’s set of system object types. Artists can view stereoscopic content directly within the viewport in a range of display modes, including anaglyph, side-by-side, and active stereo – the latter certified only on AMD professional GPUs.

VFX facilities and game developers that use 3ds Max as a content-creation tool can now tackle complex stereo projects without having to transfer data between applications.

With AMD’s advanced Graphics Core Next (GCN) GPU architecture, support for 4K monitors with DisplayPort 1.2, industry-leading memory bandwidth and support for PCI Express® 3.0 as well as OpenCL™ 1.2, the AMD FirePro™ W-series of professional graphics cards combines leading-edge technologies to make these game-changing workflows possible, enabling artists to create more complex, compelling content faster than ever before.

Footnote

1AMD Eyefinity™ technology can support multiple displays using a single enabled AMD FirePro™ professional graphics card; the number of supported displays varies by card model. Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, or Linux® is required in order to support more than 2 displays. Depending on the card model, native DisplayPort™ connectors and/or certified DisplayPort™ active or passive adapters to convert your monitor’s native input to your card’s DisplayPort™ or Mini-DisplayPort™ connector(s) may be required. See www.amd.com/firepro for details.
