Nvidia's Project Logan GPU brings PC graphics to mobile


9:14 AM on 07.24.2013



At SIGGRAPH this week, NVIDIA and Epic Games teamed up to unveil their next-gen mobile processor, Project Logan. This GPU is based on the Kepler architecture that powers what NVIDIA has been putting in desktops and notebooks this past year or so. In short, the guts that power your fancy GTX 780 have been reworked to now power mobile devices. We're talking a huge jump in performance for mobile devices with this.

This means that mobile devices will get full support of OpenGL 4.4 and ES 3.0 as well as DX11. It comes with all the goodies we'd see in our desktop machines, including tessellation, physics, and anti-aliasing. This CUDA-capable processor is going to change things. 

They've essentially scaled down desktop GPU power requirements for mobile devices -- they say this new chip uses less than one-third the power of GPUs in tablets out today.

At SIGGRAPH, Epic showed Unreal Engine 4 running on this fingertip-sized chip. You can get an idea of what to expect in the two videos we have here. Seeing "Ira" run on a tablet is very impressive.

Congrats on the Academy Award, SpeedTree

Do you ever take a moment to stop and admire the scenery? Too often are we focused on mindlessly pushing forward to the next objective to notice the little details. Foliage, man. Take it in. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts...more
