I hope the UE4 tech demo is running on Nvidia Kepler based cards
Previously they demoed Unreal Engine 4.0 using Kepler. Unreal Engine 4.0 supports nVIDIA PhysX from the start. I bet it is running on nVIDIA Keplers :D
Doesn't matter much what hardware its running on as long as it has the juice to run it.
The demo they showed in private was running on a single GTX 680.
What else did you expected it to run on? Didn't Epic themselves said that there's no current platform "Beyond PC" which can currently run UE4? Single Kepler or SLI'd Fermi's, PC is capable enough to run it with ease.
Hmmm....Epic could have used AMD 79xx....I'm happy that Nvidia is the brand of choice to showcase new engines/games since Nvidia cards are known to be a little more stable...
Cliff looks pretty pissed..
Cliff was probably sleeping and Geoff barged in on him and said "PROMO TIME, WAKE UP!!!"
Well of course he does. He's expecting for Microsoft/Sony/Nintendo to magically come up with a platform that will not only be extremely powerful (like as powerful as the most powerful PC), but for that to happen, it'll cost gamers a lot of money to even buy those kinds of consoles in this generation... like £500/£600 for a console Cliff is expecting to be made. Give it about 6-7 years and perhaps that price might drop to £300/£400 if we're lucky.
Exactly what am thinking. I don't think next gen consoles are ready to give UE4 it justice. I remember epic said that current consoles only gave 20% of UE3 full capability, and they admitted there will be next gen games running on UE3 hell did you saw the Samaritan demo? it looked very impressive and that's only running on UE3.
i am happy and ready to buy a $600 console if it can run unreal engine 4.
@NYC Ofcourse! It can run on current hardware and by that i meant PC specifically. AMD card's run Unreal Engine as good as NVIDIA minus the PhysX although NVIDIA is the preferred choice for Unreal Engine.
PS4 will win the next console generation. Sony decides when a console generation begins or ends.
LOL you're pretty bad at trolling I see?
