Default Push your new 580 with this demo. Best graphic effects I have ever seen.

This graphic demo from Andromedia has some of the best visual effects I have ever seen. Forget DX11 and check out what opengl is going here. Wow ! It will bring my 480 to its knees at times but man you guys with good cards have got to check this one out. It starts out a little slow.

That's really impressive work. Who would make something like that? This had to be some sort of project for a class or something.

You're right, it made my Fiance's HD 4870 work pretty hard, but it definitely didn't bring it to its knees. Awesome find!

There are thousands of these types of graphics demos. There has been a "demo scene", as its called, for almost 30 years. You can get old 386 demos to this day. Type demoscene in youtube and you will see more hits that you can imagine. Its huge in europe and has stayed mostly there for some reason.

Here is a great resource. They use a lot of slang so look under prods and make sure its for the pc when you grab it. People still code c-64 and amiga demos to this day. No really !

Uh oh... I think you guys with Nvidia cards may not like this.

That demo runs virtually perfectly on my 5870 @ 1920x1200 w/ AA enabled. Why does your GTX 480 not like it?

I may have to break out my trust 9800 GTX+ for this one. Both my 4870 and 5870 run this fairly well, although the 4870 seems to struggle a little bit in places. The 5870, however, runs this demo beautifully.

When I had a ATI card (4850) it would not work with openGL games at all.

turdhat... opengl and dx11 are pretty much the same... neither one has graphical effects the other does not. It is just that only one of them work in both macOS and Linux. It is not a bad API what so ever, but even today its hard to support with so many games developing for consoles ontop of windows.

This is by far ASD's most impressive work, and indeed one of the best demo scene demo's I have seen in a long time. Although ASD usually produces the best demos seen in recent memory to begin with, I usually found a lot of rough spots in their demos. They tend to lack an artist capable of good human modeling and mesh animation. %90 of the animation is usually generated by code in realtime so it is rarely an issue, it just looks ugly when that one model that is traditionally animated pops up. What was impressive it this demo was A+ stuff from beginning to end. No slow spots to show off uninteresting new routines, no breaking the flow for retro 2d stuff, it is one continuous ride.

Performance wise it was pretty good on my 460, with only a few spots showing non ideal framerates (15-25) and the ending really bogging down. I think it is a cpu factor, not gpu.

Why do you think that? Nvidia hardware historically does better in OpenGL games than equivalent ATI hardware and their Linux drivers are considered to be the best quality graphics drivers available for UNIX-like systems, which only support OpenGL.

It probably means that this demo was developed chiefly on ATI hardware.
