Super realism with Nvidia Geforce 8800 Ultra

i01_w1024.jpgNo, that’s not a frame from a movie, it’s a screenshot from the new Nvidia ‘Human Head‘ demonstration of the 8800 Ultra graphics card’s power. More high-res captures here. Graphics that used to take months of rendering time on super computers are now possible in real-time with an R8000 graphics card. With computers reaching the levels of power required for the kind of virtual reality imagined in Neuromancer and Snowcrash, we’ll soon be satisfying our innate need to control our environment. I can’t wait.
