Submission + - Tim Sweeney Claims 2000x GPU Performance Needed (pcper.com)

Vigile writes: In a talk earlier this year at DICE, Epic Games' Tim Sweeney discussed the state of computing hardware as it relates to gaming. While there is a rising sentiment in the gaming world that the current generation consoles are "good enough" and that the next generation of consoles might be the last, Sweeney thinks that is way off base. He debates that claim though with some interesting numbers including the amount of processing and triangle power required to match human anatomical peaks. While we are only a factor of 50x from the necessary level of triangle processing, there is 2000x increase required to meet the 5000 TFLOPS Sweeney thinks will be need for the 8000x4000 resolution screens of the future. It would seem that the "good enough" sentiment is still a long way off for developers.
