Our good friends at NVIDIA took us around their booth at the Consumer Electronics Show to show us some new tablets that included their new Tegra 2 CPU as well as give us a demonstration of their next-gen GF100 graphics processor. Ryan and the rest of the PC Perspective team also got a quick overview of D-Link's new Boxie Box and checked out Electronic Art's game called Need for Speed SHIFT using NVIDIA's 3DVision glasses and the GF100 with Fermi architecture.
Sean from NVIDIA took us to a wall full of Tegra-based tablets from a variety of vendors, including this Foxconn N928 tablet running a custom operating system.
Scott Cleveland from NVIDIA took Ryan through some of the new Fermi architecture eatures using this DirectX11 demo above. This demo showcases the GF100's DirectX 11, tesselation, and advanced PhysX features.
D-Link's Boxee Box was also featured at their booth. This device is powered using NVIDIA's Tegra 2 CPU and is used to bring TV shows and movies from the internet or a hard drive onto a television without using a computer.
NVIDIA also had another triple-monitor setup for CES visitors to get a taste of Batman Arkum Asylum in high-definition 3D using their GF100 and 3DVision technologies.
Lastly, Ryan had to check out another GF100 demo that used three high-definition projectors to play Need for Speed SHIFT from Electronic Arts using 3D Vision Surround technology. Overall, we were pretty impressed with the GF100's features and live game play demos as well as all the new devices using their Tegra 2 CPU. Look out for more details on the GF100 once we get our hands on a review sample.
