ONTARIO, CA. – September 10, 2118AD – In its continuing quest to improve gamers’ lives through heightened gaming experiences, XFX Multi-national Technologies Global Group, Inc. today announces the industry’s first Optic Implant for creating gaming experiences that are seamless to real life.  Users can apply today to talk to a cybergenetics professional to determine implant compatibility at http://www.xfxforce.com/2118AD/?c_camp=2118cOL

To celebrate this industry-wide first, XFX is taking an historic look back to the original 2009 technologies responsible for the Optic Implant:

ATI Eyefinity from AMD allowed gamers to discover a new realm of “surround-sight” 3D graphics with advanced multiple-display technology.1 Supporting up to six independent display outputs simultaneously, ATI Eyefinity delivered innovative graphics display capabilities enabling massive desktop workspaces, immersive playing environments, and ultra-wide views for a panoramic computing experience.2 Offering easy setup and flexible multi-display configuration, ATI Eyefinity technology added a new visual sensation to the complete Windows® 7 experience—and moved the future of graphics a step closer to the lifelike “holodeck” environment which was then science fiction.

First introduced with ATI Stream technology-enhanced graphics to maximize multicore processing and AMD next-generation DirectX 11 graphics, gamers back in 2009 could, for the first time, Pivot three monitors from landscape mode to portrait mode for an optimal gaming solution delivering an aspect ratio superior to most of the time’s modern big-screen HDTV displays.2 This technology allowed for play with greater spatial awareness using the side monitors for peripheral vision, giving gamers the ability to detect enemies sooner, react faster, and survive longer in first-person-shooter games and flight combat simulators. 2009 gamers could finally enjoy more control with a commanding view of the action in real-time strategy games, and feel a heightened sense of speed in racing games. Multiple portrait-mode displays with ATI Eyefinity technology also gave users a competitive edge at work, enabling them to see more data at a glance with legal-size documents, extra-long spreadsheets, web pages, and more.
