ars: AMD's next-gen GPU powers Crysis on an iPhone

arstechnica writes,
"While AMD gave a number of very impressive demos of their next-generation DirectX 11 part (detailed technical discussion to follow later this month), OTOY's demo of Crysis running on an iPhone was probably the most profoundly intriguing use of AMD's upcoming GPU that I saw all evening.

Ok, I know that 90 percent of you just did a double-take-Crysis, the standard gaming benchmark for high-end 3D hardware, running on a next-gen GPU on an iPhone? Let me explain." (Crysis, Crysis - Warhead, Industry, Mobile, PC, Tech)

I guess we just found out whats going to be in the PSP 2. Everybody get your hopes up!

you obviously didn't read it all, the gpu isn't in the iphone, the frames are compressed by a server computer which has the gpu, and it's sent to the iphone, you just use the phone to control it, it's basically crysis as a web based game (at iphone resolution)

Its just cloud gaming concept just the same as OnLive. Only this one has been cooked up by AMD/OTOY companies. OTOY seems to be the one with the name on the service as well. They said 20Mbit will be needed for 1080p to work well. Sounds interesting. I do agree though with PSP2, or DS 2 or whatever could also harness this type of service.

Hmm this was on Reddit a long time ago.... News aggregate...

FYI read the entire article, title is a bit deceiving.

^^^Who are you talking to?
And I don't find the title deceptive at all.
Major_Tom  +   2268d ago
This isn't the GPU alone that's doing the work, that would be a total revolution in micro technology. So yes it actually is a little bit deceiving.

It may be slightly deceptive, but it's all 100% true and follows perfectly in line with the stories contents. Just deal with it, you'll live I promise, and if you don't I'll send your mother a card or something.

lol hold on...
Your telling him to deal with it, when it is obvious he doesn't care too much in the first place? lol You guys are great.

EDIT: @Below: Noobs like me. I was totally lost reading that.

Accurate descriptions so noobs don't get confuzzled is a main priority especially on this website where people dun hav weeding skittles.

Uninterrupted internet access, up to 20Mbit? Maybe in a few years batman!

talking to who? Now I'm confused...everyone just calm down...relax:P
Major_Tom  +   2268d ago
Yeah it's just a crappy title by ars technica, to simplify this is exactly what OnLive is, handheld.
PS360PCROCKS  +   2268d ago
very very cool. I don't like handhelds though, too small for me so I'd never use this.

Also, the control scheme for Crysis on IPhone should be pretty...interesting.

dchalfont -

Very well explained.

Considering the current psp has more graphical power then the iphone.

No one reads articles on n4g.
Funny how no one reads articles on n4g. They just full of assumptions by titles. They cant run crysis on an iphone... all its doing is streaming video over a network from a big computer... and having that computer send the video to the iphone... the iphone sends its button input back to that giant machine... thats located somewhere over the internet.... and tells it what to do.. so basically ... no... amds thing cant play crysis lol
