GTA V Joins AMD Gaming Evolved

AMD sends word that the company has added GTA V to the AMD Gaming Evolved program. In addition, the company has also announced that it has added AMD Contact Hardening Shadows to the graphics option menu as well.

AMD is proud to welcome Grand Theft Auto V from Rockstar Games as the newest addition to the Gaming Evolved family. We’ve been working closely with our friends in Toronto, Canada and Leeds in the UK, and as part of that collaboration the game features AMD’s Contact Hardening Shadows (CHS). This technique dynamically hardens or softens a shadow’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 ’Soft Shadows’ drop down menu.

*UPDATE* GTA V is NOT a Gaming Evolved title.
