Epic Games shows off PC-related 'thing' to Nvidia rep: "that’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen"

DSOGaming writes: "Now that’s more like it; after the amazing tressfx technique that was unveiled a while back by AMD, we kind of wondered what Nvidia’s next move would actually be. And it seems that the green team will be working closely with Epic Games for ‘something’. That, or Epic Games is teasing some new PC technique (that will be supported by both Nvidia and AMD). Point is that ‘something’ is coming on the PC frontier by Epic Games, and it seems that Nvidia was impressed with it." (Dev, Epic Games, NVIDIA, PC, Tech)

God it better not be anything stupid. Nothing worse than hyping something up and it turns out to be not that impressive. Sounds like GameInformer's 'special' cover reveals. Ughh.

I do hope it is something good though.
Nvidia rep: "that’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen"

I wouldn't trust that. It might basically mean "we will sell so many gtx geeep peewwzzz"

Remember this?

Man I really want to get into PC gaming but dont think I have it in me to to build my own PC and those already made gaming PC cost an arm and a leg.

Also not sure if I can see my self sitting in front of a monitor...I am a lazy dude and like to come home lay on my couch and play with a controller.

It is easier than you might expect to put together a pc and I personally do play my pc on my tv sitting on the couch with a controller. The only hard part in my opinion is choosing the parts (and the restraint it takes to not break the bank going for all enthusiast level parts).

I built a computer and had no idea what any of the parts do, yeah, it's pretty simple. There is various YouTube tutorials that show you where to plug things in and such.

I bought an Alienware warranties and all. I then shopped for all the components in it recently to address the build or buy built argument. Building the same PC I have including the ALX-r4 mid tower but minus the warranty, would have cost the same. People love to cry build, those are usually the same people who have no clue what built PCs cost. Never mind the discounts, military, USAA, even State Farm etc. building is not always more expensive. Sometimes it is equal. My GTX 690, and i7-3970x cost the same from Alienware as it would without them. My two hybrid SSD drives, blu-ray, and DDR3, same price on Newegg as Alienware. I save $320 in discounts I could not get anywhere else. Regardless do research. I spent a month debating what I was going to get. There advantages and disadvantages to both.

Pft, alienware is overpriced and thats a fact. Say what you want. My 680 and 3930k build was $400 more with alienware when I built it.

I love building computers, its simply just fun. Especially once you get into custom water cooling and what not. It's just cool.

If you have to go with a prebuilt rig for gaming go with ibuypower.com though. Cheap and an A+ company. They give you a 1 year warranty stock on anything they do, be it desktop or laptop.

Building a PC yourself still gives you the options of what components you want to use. Especially brand wise.

It depends on the person. If the person isn't really handy and don't trust themselves, then yes a pre-built system is a good way to go.

But more often than not, it takes just a little bit of research and how to use a screwdriver to build your own PC.

I used to buy pre-built until I really got interested into building PCs about 4 years ago. Now I will NOT pay for kits from something like Alienware. There are other things to take into consideration, such as how the system will function.

For example, cooling wise you can either go with a GPU that has a reference cooler or a custom cooler. The custom cooler will keep the GPU cool, but output hot air back into the case. Personally I don't like that. I like reference styled GPU coolers.

That is just one example I am giving in reference to the tons of customization options people have when building their own PCs. They are NOT limited to whatever the manufacturer put in.

The last bit is having the feeling and sense of pride that you did it yourself.

Well it's been rumored for a while that they've been working on a PC exclusive new IP, so this is probably related to that. Hope it's something good.

Tree trunk character appendages mode. Which for Epic is in every game. They have now added a lifelike bark texture.
