THE BUZZ: You may think getting better visuals is just a case of increasing graphical power, but Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek, has debunked this notion.
“Performance power and visual fidelity are not things that should be compared,” he told NowGamer. “Nine times more brute force power might not result in nine times more visual quality. It may, in fact, only result in 50 per cent more visual quality. Any benefit we get from increased hardware power today, is applied more and more to the finer details.”
“There is a diminishing return with every increase in power. I would expect from a ten times more powerful spec set-up, a perceived improvement of visual experience, somewhere between a factor two, or two and a half. You would not get much more than that,” he added.
EGM’s TAKE: It sounds like an absolute powerhouse is needed to improve visuals for the next generation.
Is the next generation just about a improvement in visuals or is there something else? Leave your thoughts below.
