PSU: X-Spice 630w

The Mecha demo shows the results of a new approach to rendering semi-transparent objects without pre-sorting, known as order-independent transparency (OIT). It is made possible by the ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series of graphics processors and the new features of Microsoft DirectX 11 technology. Blending is an order-dependent operation that requires sorting objects before rendering them. Atomic operations and append buffers make it possible to construct per-pixel fragment lists and sort them on the GPU. The results are a significant increase in speed and accuracy over those possible with traditional techniques.

Oh come on! I expected more than that. The last AMD demo that kicked ass was Toyshop for the X1800 series. They are making lame demos since then.

The mech idea appeared long time before Mechwarrior in novels and cartoons.

When viewed from directly in front, it looked nearly exactly like the front chassic mech you start off with. That design i am sure is owned by Microsoft (who apparently now owns the Mech games)

Then if Microsoft is the owner, I doubt they would lawsuit ATI since they are boasting DirectX 11, which is good for Microsoft.

Wrong...Smith and Tinker now have the rights to the Mechwarrior series, Former heads of FASA Studio's. And that certainly resembles a Nova Cat chassis from Mechwarrior. it's an omni mech.

doesnt matter, they dont own the right to the concept of mechanized battle robot's or armor/suits, this concept was around long before that game was even conceived, it has been used in many other games, shows, movies and other forms of media.

The whole concept of them even being able to sue over it is stupid and wont happen.

To me that looks as much as a nova cat as it does optimus prime, just another big robot with guns.
