Waking To A New Dawn

Posted: 12 Jun 2012 10:18 AM PDT


When NVIDIA released the 3D graphics demo Dawn in 2002, it dazzled the eyes with extraordinary detail, seamless curves and lifelike expressions of the fairy it depicted.

Ten years on, NVIDIA has resurrected the intriguing sprite in a forested wonderland with the release of A New Dawn – a new demonstration of advanced 3D graphics techniques and technology enabled by Kepler-based GPUs.

As incredible as the original Dawn demo was – many of today's games have yet to realize characters with the same level of detail – it also reflected the limitations of then-current hardware. Dawn's hair was a solid block that lacked movement, her skin was more plastic than realized flesh, and the scene's backdrop was nearly static wallpaper.

The new Dawn lives in a rich, magical world made possible by more powerful GPUs that are easier to program. Her lush forest home is rendered in the finest level of detail, and she boasts tens of thousands of strands of silky, flowing hair framing her supple, human-like flesh.

Check out the video below to see the new Dawn in all her glory.

A New Dawn will be available later this month. Head over to GeForce.com for more details.

New Apple MacBook Pros Feature Kepler-Class GeForce GPU’s

Apple continues its long-streak of jaw-dropping product launches with today's introduction of two new MacBook Pro notebooks.

The all-new next-generation MacBook Pro model dazzles the eyes with a stunning 15-inch Retina Display, the highest resolution ever for a notebook. It's sleek and thin, with a battery that lasts all day. And, to get energy-efficient performance to power its 2880×1800 Retina Display, Apple chose the NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M notebook GPU.

The NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M provides up
to 60 percent faster graphics performance
than any Apple notebook before it.

Based on the next-generation NVIDIA Kepler graphics architecture, the GeForce GT 650M offers unprecedented performance and extreme energy efficiency, giving it the muscle to process the 5,184,000 pixels in the next-gen MacBook Pro's ultra high-resolution display. The GeForce GT 650M is not only up to the task, it maximizes power efficiency along the way.

Apple also launched the new MacBook Pro, a revamp of the current 15-inch MacBook Pro design with updated hardware that also includes a GeForce GT 650M GPU.

Apple has raised the bar dramatically in notebook graphics with their amazing Retina Display and has once again demonstrated that the world's best notebooks have NVIDIA GPUs.   That combination will bring unprecedented image clarity to MacBook Pro users everywhere.
