Een demonstratie van de mogelijkheden van Sony's Playstation II schijnt nogal een heftige indruk achter gelaten te hebben op de Hot Chips conferentie in Palo Alto, zo bericht Wired News:
A glimpse of the jaw-dropping graphics power of Sony's next-generation PlayStation console drew one-word superlatives from a crowd of Silicon Valley's top chip designers.
"Spectacular," said Ronald Moore, chief technology officer at GT Interactive, which publishes the games Unreal and Driver. "Absolutely spectacular."
At Monday's Hot Chips conference at Stanford University, microprocessor designers were treated to a tantalizing demonstration of the ultra-realistic, lifelike graphics power of Sony's new games console,due for its first public unveiling in Japan in September. It should be available in the United States by the fall of 2000.
"These demos are just works in progress," he told the crowd. "But you get the idea of what this machine is capable of."
K'weenie of dat laatste wil zeggen dat het hier gewoon om voor gerenderde filmpjes gaat...
