Last year at GDC 2011, Epic Games unveiled their Unreal Engine 3 Samaritan demo in partnership with NVIDIA, giving gamers a preview of next-generation graphics. Pushing three GeForce GTX 580s operating in SLI to their limit, the demoed wowed all with a level of fidelity previously unseen in a real-time demonstration. At GDC 2012 Epic showed the Samaritan demo once more, but instead of three GTX 580s, the demo was powered by a single ‘Kepler’ graphics card, later revealed to be the GTX 680, our flagship GPU. Today, Epic has unveiled Unreal Engine 4, and it too operates flawlessly on a single GeForce GTX 680.
The Way It's Meant to be Played program records its 10 year anniversary at E3 this year. Celebrating this milestone are three talented musicians, Taylor Davis, Kyle Landry, and Lara De Wit, performing game theme songs from the last decade in a concert series during the show. NVIDIA will be handing out swag, graphics cards, and tablets in between each set. The concert is located in the public area of Into The Pixel, lasts all week, and costs nothing to attend.
