Default AMD releases DX10 Ruby demo

http://ati.amd.com/developer/demos/rhd2000.html

Ruby's latest adventure takes place in a rugged, mountainous terrain where her skills as a snowboarder are tested and may just save her life. This fast paced, action packed demo exploits the power of the ATI Radeon HD 2900XT to create a rich and expansive landscape of snow, rock, and ice. From the procedural snow accumulation on the harsh terrain to the wrinkles on Ruby's brow and the physics that drive each strand of fur on Ruby's fur collar, the ATI Radeon HD 2900XT can handle it all.

Even if you don't own an HD 2900 XT card, you can download the high-definition video. I have to say, it is pretty good.

I thought it was awesome. Wow... computer games have really come a long way from the days of my youth when Ping-Pong had the kids lined up to get a chance to play it at one of the local K-Marts.

Cool DX10 Ruby

Tried the game with my DX10 card, wouldn't work ( I tried just to see ).
Downloaded the .mov file and was choppy. The sound was off and on.
I'm looking at my sound drivers now, it only happens with That mov file.
Maybe a corrupted download, it only took 3 mins.
