Welcome to Nvidia’s Endless City

Posted by Aharon Etengoff

Welcome to Endless City! This gothic, film noir demo - which artfully blends computation and graphics - was created to showcase Fermi’s advanced tessellation capabilities.

As Nvidia’s Tony Tamasi explains, the procedurally generated world of Endless City is powered by an L-system with a "couple dozen" base primitives.

The demo uses tessellation to generate an immense amount of complex geometric detail at approximately 1.3 billion polygons per second, while boasting over a thousand light sources.

Awesome, eh? 



I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see technology like this (fully) implemented in next-gen video games!
