PRESS RELEASE

Epic Games has released the first look at Unreal Engine 5 in an incredible real-time demo running on the upcoming PlayStation 5, powered by the next-generation AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture and “Zen 2” CPU cores. 

In the “Lumen in the Land of Nanite” demo, Epic Games previewed two new core technologies coming in Unreal Engine 5 that deliver unprecedented visual fidelity and photorealism, showing what’s possible with next-generation graphics technology:

  • Nanite virtualized micropolygon geometry – frees artists to create as much geometric detail as the eye can see, allowing film-quality source art comprising hundreds of millions or billions of polygons to be directly imported into Unreal Engine. 
  • Lumen – a fully dynamic global illumination solution that immediately reacts to scene and light changes.

AMD RDNA 2 builds upon the groundbreaking first-gen RDNA architecture in current AMD Radeon graphics products. With AMD RDNA 2 powering top next-gen gaming consoles like PlayStation 5, AMD is leading the way in creating a unified gaming architecture across consoles, PCs, the cloud and mobile devices—unleashing the creativity of game developers to develop breathtaking, more life-like games across all gaming platforms.
