    Well now, it seems like you can't claim to be in the business of next-gen technology these days until you've wheeled out a giant floating man-face. David Cage summoned the disembod...

    Neat stuff. You could even see the light through the top of his ear like you would in real life. So far the best face in a game would have to be Psycho's face in Crysis 3. It's like looking at a real person speaking and showing emotion. I vote Psycho for best animated face.

    Around 2terflops of power needed for just one face and thats only half the power of the TITAN.

    And the PS4 has around just a little less than 2teraflops of power.... PS4 just got owned!

    Its impressive for a console, but honestly I think the Nvidia Human Head Demo from back in 2006 looks just as good and that does not even have any animations. In the PS4 demo when the lighting lights up the face you can see that it is nowhere near as detailed as this new human head demo. The animations are good but the textures look crappy when lit up plus the eye textures look pretty low res too compared to the rest of the face. This new demo from Nvidia looks a lot better imo. Plus this is only using HALF of the TITAN. How much do you reckon that face demo is using of the PS4? Because I am certain that the PS4 with its specs can not render that much detail on a face in an actual game world with everything else on screen too.

    Demo.
    (Geforce 670 or above recommended, seems it works on older hardware like the 400 series though with a much lower framerate.)
