NVIDIA Grid shown off on a HTC One X - console-like gaming on mobiles is now here

Console-like gaming provided by NVIDIA Grid is here, shown off on an HTC One X

CES 2013 - One of the cooler things unveiled at CES 2013 was NVIDIA's cloud-based Grid. Grid is capable of doing all of the hard work, rendering and all that jazz, for games and then pushing it out to compatible H.264-based devices. Android Central have gone hands-on and taken a look at a demo run on an HTC One X smartphone.

 

 

As you can see from the video above - we're watching damn Borderlands 2 being run on a smartphone - incredible. Any device that supports H.264 decoding is Grid-capable. Latency has been reduced on NVIDIA's side, with the video showing off some cool zooming-in abilities without any huge lag - a great feat considering this isn't running on the phone, it's being rendered off-phone, and streamed to the phone.

 

NVIDIA are looking at a business-to-business model, where they'll work with Verizon and others to provide this to consumers.
