Nvidia has published a video showcasing its Tegra K1 chip running Unreal Engine 4 software along with insight from Epic Games figures such as Tim Sweeney. Watch it here.

We reported on the Tegra K1 processor reveal at CES 2014 today. It is claimed to be more powerful than chips housed within PS3 and Xbox 360. Get all the details and specs through the link.

    Not at all surprising. The Android is just a laptop computer at the end of the day, but without a keyboard and an OS still in its earliest development stages. Eventually, I think it’ll all just be PC — desktop, tablet, console, and everything else.

    How does the original PC fit into this? It’s still the best development platform due to the varied hardware and software on offer, and its unparalleled openness. This means that games like Gone Home and the Novelist could exist on the PC whereas they never could on a closed platform like a current day console or iOS device.

    The PC is going to become more and more the platform of experimentation, and then ported outward from there. Google’s been making a lot of noise about modular phones and tablets, too. That’s cool. But why is that cool? If Google and Valve figure something out, it could mean that you could have a ‘block’ that you could plug into your TV to play games, but when you’re on the move, you could slip an LCD screen onto that block and play games like that.

    The block could be comprised of sub blocks, each being a hardware component. So upgrading the hardware within a mobile device would be as simple as slipping one of those bits out, and slipping another one in. If we can figure out some kind of Universal I/O for that that’ll last us a decade, then that could be a reality.

    That’s how I think the future’s going to be, and it’s going to be pretty rad. I think the future has to be that way, honestly, because the alternative (everything going down a closed platform route and every last right being stripped away from us in favour of easy, mindless, violent entertainment with nothing else) is simply just too completely horrible to consider.

    So I’ll be optimistic. I think people are smart enough to want to embrace an open future.

    It’s an exciting time.
