A treat for GTX 600 series owners
Nvidia has rolled out its latest tech demo that goes under the "A New Dawn" name and features Nvidia's well known Dawn character seen quite some time ago as a part of the tech demo for Geforce FX Series graphics cards.
The new tech demo brings a handful of novelties and definitely looks better than ever. The tech demo features DirectX 11 tessellation, over four million triangles on vines and forest details, realistically rendered Dawn's hair with 40k strands, and sub-surface scattering feature that makes Dawn's skin even more real.
We did not have a chance to power it up for ourselves but according to post around the net and judging by the Youtube video below, the new tech demo is certainly impressive.
