Nvidia vs Slusallek
i think davepermen sent me this link to an interview in a german game magazine some time ago. the two contestants are david kirk of nvidia and phillip slusallek who is currently a professor at the university of saarbrücken/germany. the interview is quite interesting and i have to say that david kirk isn't making a good stand for nvidia
ps : i should mention that the interview is in english
Since I am not limited by company politics I will try to be a bit controversial in my responses
Phillip got it right there
Very impressive interview. I think Phillip proved his point beautifully: The future is in hardware-accelerated raytracers. One thing normal GPU's can't handle easily is the recursive nature of raytracing, so specialized hardware is definitely needed.
i love capitalism and the "Freedom to speech" (but the loss of freedom to think due money..)
