    Low/few polys representing the base mesh. They are using high displacement maps. It just doesn't look right to me.

    15%? I don't see the big deal.

    Runs fine on my GTX470 and GTX460, gets good framerates too.

    No, you need DX11.

    Considering this uses CUDA, I highly doubt it.

    Went and grabbed the latest 260.99 drivers. Went to my Control panel and deleted all Nvidia software including this demo. Reboot to safemode, ran Ccleaner reg cleaner, reboot and install drivers, reboot install demo and go at it:)

    Honestly from the screenshots I don't feel very motivated to try this. Usually I'll grab a tech demo like this cause they look better than actual games and it's neat to see, but that city is so artistically fugly I just don't see the point. Marketing fail.

    I think it's pretty neat. Flying through the city is nice, kind of reminds me of Blade Runner. It would be nice if it had a benchmarking mode though.
