    The Game Developer Conference in San Francisco is underway and virtual reality (VR) is getting plenty of love from big names in gaming. One of them is AMD, which announced today its LiquidVR SDK that will help developers customize VR content for AMD hardware.
     
    “The upcoming LiquidVR SDK makes a number of technologies available which help address obstacles in content, comfort and compatibility that together take the industry a major step closer to true, life-like presence across all VR games, applications, and experiences,” AMD said in a statement.
     
    The winners in the virtual reality war are going to be those who can achieve the strongest sense of “presence.” That’s the feeling you have of actually being in the virtual world, and it’s usually determined by the speed with which the virtual world (within your view) updates as you move. If you physically turn your head but there’s even a short pause before your view updates in the virtual world, the sense of actually being in the world is lost.
