Games in mobile phones are a quite an attraction for kids and teenagers. Its a very big market out there, good for it.

@justin time: I can't wait to see how this effects games in the next couple years.

I still remember playing a text version of "Hitch Hicker's Guide to the Galaxy" back in the early 1980s -- and we thought that was soooo coooool -- we had no concept of what was t ocome :-)

After a bit of review, it appears I was wrong. This chip will be going INSIDE some desktop cards to improve ray tracing performance. It is good news all around!

@Caleb: That doesn't really apply to this situation.

My bad -- I just skimmed the article but I saw your comment about superior graphics for games -- and Obduction is on my mind at the moment because I pledged to their Kickstarter -- so I got carried away LOL

That doesn't really apply to this situation. Obduction is for the computer, which has capabilities far beyond this with even a basic graphics card. Mobile graphics, however, don't have the excess power, space, and heat dissapation area to handle the graphics monstrosities our computers use so they have a different design timeline.

This chip should bring a few of the nice features from computers to the mobile market. Don't worry, your obduction won't be held back by mobile hardware.

Can you imagine this technology used to augment the Obduction Game as viewed through an Oculus Rift?

Man, this is really great. I can't wait to see how this effects games in the next couple years. People have been having to bake lighting into their textures for mobiles, which works but is far from desireable.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
