Just seen the technology announcement from NVIDIA, thanks to the Tegra2 hardware they are beginning to implement EVE on pads and mobile phones!!

Its amazing to see just what developments CCP are coming up with thanks to their partnership with NVIDIA and other companies. Also the implementation of server side ray tracing which will take a lot of the pressure off of players systems and allow for fantastic visuals.

Judging from the screenshots they have just shown, the graphics for EVE will improve ten fold with hardly any extra cost to the player and give us visuals that will leave other MMO's crying into their cereal. Dynamic lighting, high poly count fabrics and hair, even down to procedurally generated graphics. The next few years are going to be a very exciting time to be involved with EVE and CCP.


EDIT COPIED FROM MY OTHER POST:

Also just seen the new rendered volumetric backgrounds for the nebulas. Seems they will no longer just be flat images but will weave through systems so you will be able to fly through them as well!!!

HOLY HELL!!! NEW TURRETS WIN!! Clip of laseres sliding out of hidden recesses on a punisher and an Armageddon!! God damn they look good.

It looked like it was on the Galaxy Tab, go Android.

You realise the same avatars were shown last year at fanfest? CCP has this habit of promising way more than they can deliver. (Btw it is also way easier to make space based game look good than a ground based game).

There are already 3 Asus tabs that can play EvE (they may not all be out yet, but they were at the CES this year). The only issue they have is cooling, so you can't play for 23/7.

Will be interesting to find out which pads are coming out that are going to be making use of the Tegra gfx system. Would also like to find out from CCP if the NVIDIA systems for server side ray tracing and procedural generation are already in place or if this is currently only in the testing phase.


Also, found a link for the Tegra enabled pads:

It probably has more to do with the fact that it's an nVidia platform, and nVidia engineers doing experimentation…

It was a motorola xoom. The phone they demo'd was the Motorola Atrix, both using the same tegra 2 t40 chips. The current galaxy tab (7") doesn't have a tegra in it, but the new ones releasing in the coming months (8.0" and 10.1") are tegra 2 models.

The demo did look awesome - I'd hope that if/when they do release the fitting tool that it would have some API tie-ins allowing us to refit ships remotely.

Excellent, thanks very much for the info. I've been looking into getting a pad, and having one that may well be capabale of running EVE without having to remote desktop in would be awesome.

Me too, I have the original Motorola D1, and I love it. Been looking at the Xoom myself.

you guys think it would work on snapdragon tabs aswell? going to get the HP touchpad when it comes out and would love to play eve on it...

Bolded part is just your personal interpretation, not what was said by either CCP or the NVidia rep.

They just showed that their hardware is getting powerful enough to render single ship models - they didn't announce any plans to make EVE available on tablets/phones.

There's no technical reason why not - the snapdragons in the touchpad have an ardeno 220 gpu which will be comparable with the tegra 2 graphics power wise. The issue is that the touchpad is running webOS so you would have to wait for it to be built for webOS or to install an android ROM onto it. There's no reason why it couldn't work it is purely a question of if they see webOS as a viable enough platform to target.

You realize this was just a fitting tool with BARELY rendered below 30 fps ship models (Tegra GPU is crappy, think slower than first Voodoo PCI)


Whole NVIDIA SELLOUT part was sad. Just as I predicted soon we will need two Nvidia GFXes to play (one dedicated to physx, because as Mafia 2 showed one card cant do both).

The server side raytracing, combined with real time radiosity is epic win. Better invest in NVIDIA graphics cards if EVE is so aligned behind them.

Do you have any proof of any of this?

If not please stop pulling **** out of your ass based on a 30 second demo.

No it isn't, Its much better than the Voodoo series, I can play games on slower GPUs than the Tegra that I couldn't play on the Voodoo.

You realise it was playing on a device less than a centimetre thick? A slimline mobile device? Right? Go pedal your whines elsewhere.

Like I said on paper tegra is slower than Voodoo PCI (5).

All that doesnt matter tho, what matters is a lockin that NVIDIA will bring to EVE. Next thing you know Antialiasing will only work on NVIDIA ala Assassin's Creed. We already know Avatars will work under APEX and will be crippled without NVIDIA card.

This may have been posted already, but the smartphone EVE was shown on was a Motorola Droid X and the table was the Motorola Xoom. Both of which I wanted before I saw the demo today and both are even higher on my list now. lol
