I Played FarCry with Pixel Shader 3.0
 
2 Attachment(s)
Didn't notice the first 2 days, but today I head over to the nVidia booth... check out FarCry.. and I notice it is running the new PS 3.0 patch on a 6800 Ultra. It is INCREDIBLE. The rocks, shadows, are absolutely stunning, it looks as if every single rock was rendered. My friend took a video of me playing, I will see if I can get that uploaded later, here is a few pictures though:

Really so it was running at decent framerate?

cause when I went to see it, it was kinda laggy... maybe it was just that "one" machine that I saw. Go play Stalker if you get the chance.

It was kinda laggy occasionally.. but It was running 4xaa... so i think that might have been it

I took those screenshots just with the camera on my pda. Also, they had the famous boat level, (same level on demo) Thats why the game first grabbed my attention, it looked incredible. The gravel on the beach looked really good. Although the question remains maybe this stuff is capable on 2.0, but never implemented because it would run too slow on NV3X hardware?

Well that's basically what the Crytek guys already said. It can be done on sm2 and sm3. You're right that it would be too slow on nv3x, i'm pretty sure it would just be way too slow on a R3x0 too.

I hope this gets released somehow.

maybe they should juz do a comparison of performance between SM 2.0 rendered & SM 3.0 rendered scenes
and since SM 2.0 can do multipass to render SM 3.0 scenes they could take into consideration the performance hit when multipass is being used & show it
