DirectX 12 Video Crosses the Uncanny Valley

The NVIDIA Blog offers a tech demo video showing off DirectX 12, demonstrating the visuals possible with the upcoming update to the API (thanks HARDOCP). The result is very impressive, as is the hardware behind it, as it is running on quad GeForce TITAN X GPUs. They say DirectX 12 finally allows them to cross the uncanny valley:
Coined by pioneering roboticist Masahiro Mori nearly 50 years ago, the term describes the boundary where emotional realism in the digital world begins to blur with reality — and creates a sense of the strange, or even revulsion, in human observers.
Overcoming this sensation has been a stretch goal for computer-generated graphics for decades. It’s a task that’s even tougher when performed in real time.

WITCH CHAPTER 0 [cry] project, powered by Microsoft’s new DirectX 12 application programming interface (API) and NVIDIA GeForce graphics, points to a way through the uncanny valley.

Bringing more reality and depth to character expressions will better immerse players in stories during game-play, and deepen their connection to characters.

Meh, all I care about is pure performance with your average setup, not tech demos on cutting edge quad rigs.

These tech demos will be for average setups in 10 years.
