Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I hope that PS4 (or other console using it) will be linux-friendly as PS3 was until Sony blew it. Alas, however slim this chance is, there seem to be no better chance.
I just tried this one for playing fullscreen video and indeed it appears use less CPU. But this computer computer is fast enough to make a difference. I wonder if it will improve playback on another computer that stutters on video with 100% CPU (although, a similar windows system plays HD flash video just fine).
Now we know to avoid MS, and and for others it's forbidden.
Unless they secretly acquire a license.
The article only mentions DirectX, no word about OpenGL, so it must be not a pure hardware solution. If all it does is re-routing of D3D calls, why CPU can't do it?
2. So, instead of needing high-end console or computer you'll need the fastest, expensive internet connection. You may have a lot of bandwidth now, but that would require a lot of bandwidth coupled with low-latency. If you don't notice if youtube playback or start of download is delayed by a second, you will with a game.
3. True for PC, but consoles do not suffer from hardware compatibility already. If you are trying to imply a cross-platform play, then I will say that mouse, keyboard or iphone touch screen are not adequate replacements for dualshock or wiimote.
So it may work as an addition from the traditional gaming, but as a replacement? Not in foreseable years.
Will the text be still readable on lower resolution? Perhaps, not so essential for a FPS, but would kill an RPG.
At least, I can undo it by posting here.
This does not require that much more effort to create, it would add a little to the immersion and a DVD release could use one version as current games.
