  1. What happened to Voxel based GI? I remember during the days of Rage that Carmack said that triangles would become so small that the same idea of slicing a huge texture in smaller pieces and loading just the required pieces could be extended to geometry as well. Seems that years later and we get to that point.

    Corona Virus

    I want to punch the president's face. The minister of health said "A doctor does not leave a patient behind". The president replied with "Patients can seek another doctor if they want to". https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/ Look at this number.... !!!
  3. The spec war is ludicrous in the comments sections. Teraflops vs SSD speed. The only advantage that I see is that PS5 might draw less power and the system might use up less RAM due to the SSD speeds. Other than that, the xbox has more TMUs and more ROPs, which translates into more pixels. Games on PCs from now on are going to require SSDs and 8-cores are quickly going to be a requisite.

    Corona Virus

    Past 800 deaths and 16k confirmed cases here. But they are unable to keep up with the number of suspected cases, they lack the infrastructure to test everyone. The President keeps arguing with everybody about letting the safety measures down. I read that some nurses, doctors and other ppl working at hospitals are being rebuked because ppl think that they are carrying the virus with them. "Don't touch me!" "Stay away from me!". But there is an interesting piece of data: the virus is not reaching all cities, it's mostly hitting large cities. Small towns are pretty much unaffected by it

    I just had my first online class. Teacher was streaming from home and it was just like the regular classes. I'm worried about the courses that require labs because you can't do anything without having access to the lab itself. This is going to screw everyone's schedule. For the first night in 2 weeks ppl stopped demanding for the president to fall. He must have received some advice to stop claiming that the virus was not so serious and that ppl shouldn't be afraid to go out.

    Corona Virus

    Some articles are stating that the lockdown should span 2 months. That a massive impact on everyone's lives and economy. There is an ongoing war here with the President wanting to save the economy and the governators wanting to stop the vírus from spreading even more.
  8. Both MS and Sony did invest in processing power for 3D audio. Their current hardware can do it, but if developers do so they are forced to cut down elsewhere because there isn't enough power to do 3D audio plus graphics. This is some phd work from 2014. It makes a huge difference in immersion.

    Olympic games officialy delayed. Ppl who study such viruses and diseases must have told politicians but they didn't listen.

    When was the last time europe has seen so many deaths? That heat wave in France also killed many old age ppl. Europe is already suffering a huge influx of refugees.
  11. I just watched it. They must have broken the maps in so many pieces with lots of jumping in between to hide the slow streaming speeds of HDD. Must be the same reason for having so few enemies at the same time.

    This is fake. That didn't happen this year, it was from another time and something unrelated to the current virus. Holy.... What did the american government do? The number of infected in the US is alarming.

    Our president went to US to meet with Trump and now lots of ministers and senators have been infected. He's such a dum....
  14. This pretty much explains why they dropped separate DDR just for the OS. And the zen 2 cores are much more powerful to run the OS itself. There is an on going wars about teraflops, lol.

    Corona Virus

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-51701039 It all began in China, but see what some religions do? The number of deaths here in increasing. 7 now. Now they are announcing the suspension of some taxes, giving money for some special cases of poverty and such. Ppl living in slums are under the severe risk due to many factors (smaller homes, less water, poor envrionmental conditions, etc) Some doctors here are heavly criticizing all the attention given to the corona virus because there are other diases much more dangerous than it. Dengue fever for instance.

    Shit! Now they are closing all malls, theaters, museums, stores, gyms. All shows and sports events suspended. With 3 deaths they are taking severe measures.
  17. They did spent more on the SSD part as Cerny said back then. The difference in brute performance is very small. Even less than PS4 x Xbox one. 2 ~ 3 Tflops of brute force is not going to be noticiable most of the time. They are both relying on pretty much the same raytracing tech, same shaders tech, same CPU, same GPU. The differences lie in different approaches for cooling and power consumption.
  18. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2020-inside-xbox-series-x-full-specs Anybody waiting for it? Eurogamer has published all specs. There is no secondary low power CPU for OS, nor dedicated DDR for it. It seems that PS5 is going that way, repeating the same idea of the PS4. The SSD is embedded inside, you can't swap it. If you need there is an external port to plug in a dedicated external SSD. The SSD of the next consoles is about 20x ~ 30x faster than HDDs, meaning that lots of games are going to require a high speed SSD to run or they might make the PC versions r

    They just decided to suspend all classes and activities here. They are afraid that if more ppl get sick, the health care system is going to be overloaded.

    Corona Virus

    In my uni there have been two confirmed cases. They are discussing wether or not to close it for the moment. Nevertherless, they are already cancelling all events which have 100 or more ppl.
  21. If they can run doom eternal at 400 fps, this means that if you have 16 or 20 cpu cores, they could support 100 monsters on screen at the same time. https://www.tweaktown.com/news/70929/doom-eternal-maxes-out-at-1000-fps-on-pc-theres-no-upper-limit/index.html
  22. I think he suffers from some mental health condition. He's so extremely akward in public.
  23. They've mastered organic levels. The "inside a monster" feeling is so real that you never notice anything missplaced, oddly placed or that doesn't feel natural. Even when you zoom in the surfaces look so high res and high poly, as if you could touch it and feel the roughness of it. They are going to win "best graphics" for this. Compare doom eternal to that Elemental techdemo from years ago.
  24. They most certainly had to hold back on a few things because the CPUs in consoles aren't much great and they are still having to deal with HDD loading times. If it were exclusively next gen the game would probably have much larger scales.
