Activision took some time during the Game Developers Conference last week in San Francisco to show off some of their impressive 3D face rendering technology. You can check out the video below.
Activision seem to have produced some very realistic faces, but those lips and mouth movements aren't perfect yet. Everything else looks damn impressive, even more so that it was all driven from a PC with a single GeForce GTX 680 GPU inside. Activision have said that the technology demo is running at 180fps on the GTX 680 - a somewhat useless number - because if this tech was built into a game with another 20 characters with this tech, and entire world at this level of graphics, those frame rates would plummet.
It's nice to look through a window into next-gen facial rendering, and I can't wait until this becomes the norm. You can read more on it here.
