Default Resident Evil 4 on Gamecube ?

Anyone think the Gamecube could shift this amount of detail around in real-time ?

http://www.cube-europe.com/preview.php?prid=56

I know it's an ATI chip in there with embedded DRAM, and a design close to the radeon , maybe ? or was it totally custom ?

But Capcom are claiming that what you see in those screenshots are completely real-time.
Yet previous incarnations have been pre-rendered backdrops, with real-time overlaid characters.

Any thoughts ?

I must admit, if those ARE real-time, then they certainly blow anything I've seen on any other console to date.

Very nice, if those are real time as they claim, I must say that I'm very impressed.

its not suprising that the gamecube is only just starting to shine, having suffered from unrelenting cutie ninty graphics and half arsed ps2 ports.. i remember reading the details of the gamecubes specs and the thing is just incredible... it has a bottleneck free architecture, everything is lightening fast and remarkbly scaleable.. even though the cpu isnt that powerful, clock for clock all the parts of the machine are outstanding in comparison to anything else

Well it looks good only becouse everything is in dark and low resolution , maybe it uses low textures/low poly and have prerendered shadows except character that why its not hard to render it and it looks good
Splinter Cell made in little screenshots looks awesome to , on Xbox as does Metal Gear Solid 2 on PS 2 .

Nothing to get excited about would be cool if that game would come on PC

it's not an ATI chip and the architecture is nothing close to a radeon. it is a custom graphics chip.

anyway, yes, i believe the GC can probably do it in real time

Time to eat humble pie, me thinks

Now, given the time frame ATI developed this chip, around the time they were developing Radeon tech. Are you telling me they never included one part of the Radeon technology ?
Seems a bit silly to develop something entirely new, when they already had something pretty good.
