Video traces 13 years of real-time graphics improvements

Some clever clog has edited together a whopping two hours of footage from tech demos and benchmarking videos to give an overview of PC graphics from 2000 to 2013.

Creator PerfectHand doesn’t have any ATI or AMD videos in there, unfortunately, as he uses an Nvidia rig, but some third-party efforts means it’s not a one-brand love-in. Presented in chronological order, the video ought to spark a few memories, and even some of the early ones still look impressive.

I have not watched the video myself as two hours represents an amount of time nobody at VG247 is possessed of in business hours (you’re welcome, by the way) but second-hand reports and scene skipping suggest it does not suddenly and embarrassingly devolve into fetish porn or something part way through. At your own risk, though.
