Huge crowd for NVIDIA at Comic Fiesta 2014

At Comic Fiesta 2014 last week, NVIDIA demonstrated VR Direct and Shadowplay, two latest graphics technologies that the GeForce GTX 980 & GTX 970 graphics cards support. Last September, NVIDIA just announced the GeForce GTX 980 & GTX 970 graphics cards based on Maxwell architecture. The GeForce GTX 980 is probably the world’s fastest GPU supporting all-new graphics features that will allow gamers to experience their games like never before.

VR Direct reduces the latency response when wearing virtual reality goggles to prevent motion sickness due to display lag. Shadowplay is a hardware-based screen recording app allowing a myriad of options for capturing in-game moments. NVIDIA successful received huge attention from the crowd by offering a chance to experience VR Direct on the Oculus Rift.

The VR Direct provides multiple technologies to make the VR expreience much better. The VR Direct reduces the latency response on VR applications by half that will create a much more comfortable user experience as it rides on NVIDIA’s current 3D VISION technology. The next generation of games will not only look better and run faster on the GeForce GTX 980, they’ll also be more immersive thanks to virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift. With VR Direct, NVIDIA have developed a number of advancements for virtual reality reducing latency, improving image quality, and bringing a whole range of content to VR that wasn’t there before.

Shadow Play on the other hand allows users to record their in gaming. It also supports local recording via GPU encoding, it supports all Direct X 9, 10, 11 GPUs and bringing Twitch Streaming support. It does all these with the minimal impact on the performance and giving the gamers an uninterrupted gaming experience.

VR Direct and Shadow play is current available on NVIDIA’s latest Maxwell graphics card – the GTX980 and GTX970, which offers next generation graphics with improved performance and power efficiency.
