DSOGaming writes: "During this year's GTC2013, Nvidia showcased some truly amazing features that might be coming to the next-generation titles. Among to those features were some stunning ocean simulation physics and FaceWorks, a technique that has been used to render and animate a human head with incredible image fidelity." (Next-Gen, NVIDIA, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

That boat demo looks beautiful

The Glorious PC Gaming Master Race
1. Now you see why Nvidia didn't wanna waste time making console GPU's. They have partnered with USC to make Next Gen computer animation graphics which will lead them to Hollywood and BIG MONEY!!

2. The PS4 GPU is rated at 1.84 Tflops.
That facial animation sequence requires 2.00 Tflops just to do.

You have just witness TRUE NEXT GEN!!!!

PC is all about BLEEDING EDGE TECHNOLOGY Today not maybe next console cycle.

And the console is about having close enough to approximate what the PC owner paid three to four times as much for to satisfy those who only care to drop $400 on their video game systems, and who don't care to have a massive, noisy, power hungry PC hooked up to their living room TV.

Enjoy your tower of gaming power... I'll stick to my console.

Also, enjoy the tiny handful of games that actually pushes your super expensive GPU that hard which release from the time that tech is available until the time a console comes out that matches it... I'll enjoy the constant stream of first party exclusives.

yeah, but I'd love to see this working with AI and a buttload of characters models who have paths and animations, this would not run on anything, this is just some bs tech demo, all of this has just been tech demo's, and you gotta think, how much money is in the computer that's running this? just to run these tech demo's that are essentially lifeless? if you think this means that you're going to be playing games that look like that anytime are an idiot.

Also, just listening to that guy talk made me angry, he was talking about shit that's completely useless, "Oh this is running on the titan" do you know how much that fuckn thing costs? not to mention you would probably need 3 of them sli'd just to run the first and last tech demo efficiently.

Seriously man. You are making all of us look bad.
ATi_Elite  +   1054d ago
I love when they RAGE disagree
ATi_Elite states facts then the fanboys can't hit the disagree button fast enough.

All i did was mention that you are seeing what is truly next Gen. those with Gaming PC's soon have this to look forward to.

Why people brought up stupid console stuff is beyond me. I never ask about the PS4 price or it's games, it's exclusives, or playing in the living room.

also don't talk about GTAV or RDR cause I can run those on my PS3 Emulator. So PLEASE don't bring that up with me cause I literally hurt my stomach laughing cause i can play everything u can and MORE.

and whoever mentioned Sim City....It sold 1.1 million it's first week with EA getting EVERY PENNY cause it was a Origin Exclusive.

1.1m x $60 = $66m in EA's pocket. Not bad for one week!!! I'm sure Sim City couldn't have costed no more than $10m - $20m to make.

@ATi_Elite "ATi_Elite states facts then the fanboys can't hit the disagree button fast enough. " It doesn't matter whether or not your facts are real, it's people like you who make PC gamers look bad. There was absolutely no point in bringing consoles into an article primarily focused on PCs.
thedon8982z  +   1054d ago
I never comment directly to pc fanboys, but you would be a dame fool to think you could get this quality with AI,1080P RES,60 FRPS, AND GAME LOGIC IN GENERAL running at the same time. This is just A tech demo when you can take ALL resources at hand and pump it into visuals. I believe that with PS4 3rdGEN TITLES we diffinatly will get close to this.Pc will however get close to this to but only after TITAN GPU power becomes standard.

The eyes on the PS4 tech demo the Heavy Rain guy showed looked better, these ones were all glossy and super plastic. Even the facial animations of the mouth still looked worse in comparison. He talked about Beowolf's Angelina Jolee creey realism and then showed something that looked creep yet unrealistic. The only thing that good great was the skin texture and skin textures have looked great on pc games for years already.

This was a failure, all the hype and the jump wasn't significant at all.

GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME  +   1054d ago
hope games start to really take advantage of this technology, instead of catering only to consoles
DaThreats  +   1054d ago
lol, running on Titan, gna be a while till everyone has that
Pandamobile  +   1054d ago
Yeah, it's a shame that probably won't see stuff on this level in games until the next-next-generation of consoles
Kur0  +   1054d ago
its running on a Titan and using half of if its teraflops which means there is no way a full game would run off the Titan using that face tech and the Titan alone is $1000.
Black_McGrath  +   1054d ago
Didn't L.A Noire use a similar facial technology?

Pandamobile  +   1054d ago
Similar, but no where near as high fidelity as this.
Black_McGrath  +   1054d ago
Yeah it's clearly not on the same level, but it's good to see that this could become the standard if a few years. I know they've been working on this for 20 years I think they mentioned in the video.
I just find it cool to see Rockstar was experimenting with it and a lot of reviews and critics were saying the game was stiff but the emotions you get from the actors were incredible. I'm just thinking what if there was something like this to scan full body scenes where will they go from here
shutUpAndTakeMyMoney  +   1053d ago
yes but with capturing face expressions. This is a gpu simulation.
Granpire  +   1054d ago
That presenter showed unusual enthusiasm for this sort of thing. Kudos for that.
Letros  +   1054d ago
That's their CEO :-D
Granpire  +   1054d ago
Then even more kudos! None of Sony's execs show that kind of sincere interest in what they're doing.

Usually, the CEOs are the worst for this sort of thing in my experience.
whoyouwit04  +   1054d ago
Boy boy boy, People need to stop bringing up price when the PC does something a console can't, the PS3 was 600$ when it launch and sony was losing 300$ a console. so a console true price was just as expensive as a PC, and until this day sony still loses money on every ps3 sold. Like I said before A console will never be more powerful then a pc it can only do what it is doing already try in become more like it.
SkyCrawler  +   1054d ago
but we already know this... It just looks desperate that pc gamers are always throwing it in peoples' faces. What's the first reply to the first comment on this page? Read it, go on.

Great tech demo but I doubt a game would look like that with more people on the screen....I'm an proud console gamer and its funny how quick PC gamers turned once the PS4 was teased....

Before 2/20 it was PS3/PC is the only gaming consoles I need..But now all I see is the PS4 can't match these specs and so on and so on...I play a couple of games on PC and to be honest its a pain in the ass..One of the games I play is available in 1080p & I have an stable 100+ fps, but the amount of hackers ruin PC gaming for me..If I'm not getting kicked from an room I'm being called an hacker..

If it wasnt for ghost mode I wouldn't even game on an PC....

But that was an awesome tech demo could see this reaching the market in the next 2-3 years....
NYC_Gamer  +   1054d ago
I still believe PC/PS4= the best combo going forward in gaming..I'm happy about PC and console changing the way we all game in going into the future..

I think David cage's old man face looks better
whoyouwit04   1054d ago | Personal attack | show
Studio-YaMi  +   1054d ago
No,it wasn't !

The face in this demo is on a whole new level,but that doesn't mean that the David Cage old man's face isn't good as well.

Besides,show me a game filled with NPCs that has a face similar to the one shown in this demo .. then we'll talk ! showing 1 face squeezing the teraflops of the Titan is hardly future proof.

Wait for a couple of years .. then we will see this demo implanted into full games & then I'll be wowed !
Pandamobile  +   1054d ago
"I think David cage's old man face looks better"

If you think that, you'd be wrong.
FamilyGuy  +   1054d ago
I think the eyes on David Cages demo definitely looked better, more realistic. These ones were like super shiny plastic.

The mouth also looked bad/standard on this one, he wanted to compare it to the cg of beowolf and failed hard. Beowolf characters, to this day, STILL look so human it's hard to tell they're animated at times. This, mainly because of the soulless eyes, smiling and overall mouth animations, made it blatantly obvious.

ok i think autodesk needs to pump out a new maya and max.

if they can get these level of graphics in realtime ...
then my simple renders that dont have raytracing need to be better optimized
ANIALATOR136  +   1054d ago
something about that head still didnt look real to me. I think its the eyes. They always seem to show no soul or emotion
Studio-YaMi  +   1054d ago
Agreed,it had amazing texturing,shadowing & lightning(which is impressive that it's being rendered in real time),but the way it's animated(even when he's being happy or sad) it's still soul-less to me.
NYC_Gamer  +   1054d ago
The whole Nvidia conference had me amazed with how far tech is going

this is nice
i dont get all the hate in this thread

Amazing tech, breathtaking visuals!!... And to afford this kind of next gen ELITE pc technology will probably cause wallet rape for consumers
