A GTC 2013 trailer from NVIDIA shows off "Face Works," some new technology they have created to render more realistic human faces. Word is: "NVIDIA Co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang shows a demo of Face Works technology running on the GeForce GTX TITAN GPU. It includes a must be seen to be believed, amazingly realistic simulation of a face in this second segment of the opening day keynote at GTC 2013." Thanks GamesHQMedia.
The sheer amount of development that must go into this, in terms of modelling and texturing, it makes me wonder if we'll ever see this very often. I suppose the day will come when Hollywood's latest star gets scanned and high definition models/textures created from them and then we'll get games starring Ryan Gosling or whoever.
If this took half the card's processing power, it's a long way off anyway. How much gameplay are you going to get when a single person's head is taking half the graphics card's resources.
