Thought I was the only one who caught that. .Comprehension not compression.
The demo should be releasing soon, I'd hope. But it is a little fishy that it's been delayed much longer than anticipated. First half of the year is pretty much over, and it was supposed to release in the beginning of 2021... Maybe the payout from Sony to Epic is the sole reason for this, but it can't be delayed forever. Can't wait to test this out for myself though.everything you’ve written here i true and makes sense, but the fact is still they wouldn’t make that demo solely for the ps5. They’ve even said it would be release at the start of 2021 on pc, but its been delayed. I’ll say because of Covid But who really knows.
put me in the camp of when that tech demo gets released, like every other demo epic has made before it, it will run the same or better on pc. If it doesn’t get released there’s something even more fishy going on.
For the millionth time, can you provide any streaming asset speeds? I/o latency, etc? If you can't provide a lick of info, please refrain from speaking on something none of us have a clue on. Especially when the engineers who created the engine, say otherwise. Where was it started PC and Xbox would need to be downgraded?I don't want to burst the bubble of some people here, but the demo shown by Epic was to show off asset streaming and the level of detail in any given scene it can create. They chose the PS5 to demo this new tech because its SSD tech is lightyears ahead of any other competition. They said the demo will run on all machines and it will look beautiful nonetheless. It will look best on PS5 though and then scale down depending on IO speed because of the amount of assets needing to be loaded/streamed during the scene.
On top of this, why would Epic lie about this? Their engine is supposed to run on all platforms, and they make money because of being available on all platforms. If Epic would lie about this it would set a terrible precedent and it would be severely bad for their image (e.g. Microsoft can decide not to use the engine on their games), so you can trust them to be honest on this. And if you don't believe what they're saying, it is time to do some actual research into the subject instead of just negating facts because it doesn't suit your opinion.
Can't wait to prove how a pci 3.0 SSD will have better performance in this demo. I'll even show my results from a pci 4.0 SSD for shits and giggles.
