what is the PS4s answer to DX11??
They let the fanboys come up with one for them Edit---No really, openGl will probably start getting the support it deserves because of the Ps4/.
No one knows what the PS4 is fully capable of but that deep down game got some sweet effects.
Wat. Pretty much every console in recent history has used OpenGL except for the Xbox and Xbox 360.
PS4 will use OpenGl 4.3, and is better. xD
The PS4 will be native DX11 because the PC part being put in it supports DX11. There is no "answer" to DX11 since it is a DX11 video card.
DX11 is an API... an instruction set owned by Microsoft. The GPU may be DX11 "CAPABLE" but the PS4 will not support DX11. OpenGL has supported most of the DX11 features for years... including tessellation everything else can be hard programmed in.
openGL and openCL. Dx11 & Physx is not needed. But of course what it's up to the devs.. Both consoles are low powered don't get your hopes up for physics simulations to be used heavily...
Isn't the nextbox rumored to have dx11?
Aww Nvidias physics: / hope you can tweak the Ini to make it run in the CPU
Havok, PhysX by nVidia (as confirmed Sony in their press release). So no shortcomings so far that I know of...
All of the game is taking part at winter:(
Ohh come off it already. A hand full of screens is hardly indicative of the final game. It ultimately depends on where the story is set. How people rush to judgment, good or bad, based on so little evidence is beyond me.
Ok, sorry. I like the W series, but part at winter all in the game not soo good options. That's my huge problem, nothing more. Off.
Has CD Projekt actually said that it takes place entirely in winter or a snowy climate? I've seen pictures of snowy mountains. There are plenty of places that are moderate in climate and very green, but if you climb nearby mountains, they are always covered with snow and ice. Here's a picture of a secret, magical place known as Colorado that is simultaneously snowy in the mountainous areas but quite green in lower elevations: http://peasinablog.com/wp-c...
Yes, understand, but one problem AKS, all screenshots and artwork for TW3 snow and winter look so than Skyrim. TW2 most colorful environments, the TW3 not too.
This game keeps sounding better and better. They seem to be trying to do everything with this title. I hope they are not overly ambitious.
Never understood why Witcher 2 didn't...
PhysX is nothing but a performance killer.
Simply not true.
... If your PC sucks
http://rastergrid.com/blog/... "As a conclusion, I would like to say just one thing: even though there are some features that are not supported by either OpenGL or Direct3D, we really can say that the two APIs are on par with the number of hardware features they expose." And of recent nVidia and Valve have been gaining more performance out of OpenGL than with DirectX. Whatever the case the next gen is going to be bloody awesome.
OpenGL has always been faster. I think they missed out on their DX9 equivalent but generally its faster. I remember some games gave you an option for a D3D renderor a opengl render and the opengl performed better.
You talking about way back in the day? Because I remember that being true under certain circumstances and depended on the game. I may be mistaken but back when there was choice OpenGL wasn't better 100% of the time.
I really hate the whole exclusive physx crap, it makes me hate nvidia.
