    BitSquid "Stone Giant" DX11 demo download...

    Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbIQSZs9Zvs

    EDIT:

    Torrent URI: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:OX6QEA2I6GJBN6Z4L7IKJMRA75OFL7XJ

    & you'll need the Feb DX redist: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...80-E94A-4F56-B157-5AB8109CB4F5&displaylang=en


    That poor server is really getting hammered though, I was getting less than 20Kb/s

    but I found a really fast local proxie - 94.73.63.51:3128 so download it through that,

    or you can just wait for the public build which should be out in a couple of weeks...

    :D

    It is a tech demo for testing tesselation on DX11 cards, like the Unigine Heaven demo.

    Looks like that proxie is dead now, try this one- 84.252.63.251:3128

    Only 100KB/s but better than nothing. btw, anyone tested this on a 5770 yet ??

    I don't do the whole bench mark thing unless someone asks me lol

    I play games instead to see how my graphics card does.

    Blur-o-vision seems to be in fashion at the moment, it's almost as bad a Modern Warfare 2's

    You can change the DOF mode but it seems to be broken on ATI cards...

    Glad its not just me who's noticed.

    I switch it off or turn it down to the minimum in most games XD

    I like the DOF. It makes it seem like a movie.

    We had the same thing with dodgy lense-flare effects a few years back, speaking of movies I'm sure they nicked those bug things from Tremors 2!

    The download link is now dead, BitSquid made them take it down as the demo is still under NDA until the public release in a couple of weeks.

    I don't think anyone else is hosting it but a few people managed to grab it through the proxies before it was taken down.

    There is a torrent going but it only has a few seeds so if you manage to get it down please help seed it!

    Think I'll wait for pub release. From the video it looked like Shale the stone golem in Dragon Age. And those must be corrosive crystals :p

    QFT, will a less bulky head it would definitely be Shale. And yeah, green is the color for nature damage.
