Actually if they could just remove the dead zone between pixels the screen door effect would be eliminated, which is independent of resolution.

Right, but there are a few ways you can attack it and greater resolution is one way. Dead zone always made the most sense, but it must be difficult to do.

Do you have to run native resolution? The higher rez can be used to act as great pixel density and remove screen door, no matter what the game rez is running at, the native grid would take care of that.

IBM thinks Notes and Domino can rise again

"There he took up again his great Ring in Armonk - New York, and dwelt there, dark and silent, until he wrought himself a new guise, an image of malice and hatred made visible; and the Lotus Notes of IBM the Terrible few could endure.”

You're not thinking this through. VR is the next spark. Just like 3d games in the 90s were the spark that pushed 3d acceleration forward.

Personally, I think the GPU industry needs a kick in the pants. It's been wallowing with incremental upgrades for years. One generation is slightly better than the next. That's mostly why this generations consoles are shit, they were obsolete before they ever left the drawing board, relying on AMD GPU's that were already available. When you go back to the 7th gen, at least they included GPU's that were slightly better. But even then, it's incremental, small steps. Where's the leap-frogging we got in the 90's when the 3D acceleration train started? Is this it? With CPU's hitting their theoretical limit size-wise, what do we have to look forward to? Will we never get to 10ghz? Or are we just going to have more and more ~3-4ghz cores stuffed in?

Bah! I get so frustrated with this industry sometimes! They worry more about money than innovation. Game devs don't make games to push the hardware as far as it can be, they make them for $$$ only. That's their only goal anymore. Is the spark gone?

All about eye tracking and foveated rendering. You only see CLEARLY in a very small portion of your vision, the rest is assumed detail. Already a little company making eye trackers and their own foveated rendered for Nvidia cards that works in the Vive. Even with the initial setup of it, the gains were around 50%. That was halfway thru 2017, built-in solutions will be even better.

Right now, the real question is “How big are those screens?”. Pixel density is a real issue to sort out for VR headsets to get sharper. Also, if VR adoption is going to take off, people will need easy, properly-priced access to video cards. The only way that’s going to happen is if one of the video chip makers designs a faster, cheaper chip that can’t do video output, or crypto currencies become near worthless.

Yet another Google go nowhere project no doubt. Those guys really learn to need to actually see things through. I hate dilettantes.

Interesting to see the prez prohibiting the sale of Qualcomm to Broadcom. I had no idea he had that authority.

It's a good thing, btw. Broad-Qualcomm would have essentially become a monopoly.

We'll start over with CGA, and then on to EGA, etc. In 20 years we'll be back to where we are now, only in VR.
