How The World's Most Powerful Graphics Card Could Change The Internet

Everyday Digitals

Nvidia released the worlds most powerful graphics card (in a single GPU) in February but last week showed off their new engine they created to demonstrate the full power of the Titan called Face Works. Face Works starts by compressing 32GB (1 1/2 Blu-Rays) of video from 156 cameras that capture 30 different human facial expressions. All of that data is then compressed to around 400MB (half a CD-R) allowing the software to be able to call on that data seamlessly in real-time and determine the proper facial expressions using the power of the graphics card. Nvidia wasn't clear if these data meshes could work on any facial model or if each person would have to be scanned to get the type of accuracy shown in the demo. The power of the Titan is extremely impressive, and gives a glimpse of what type of applications this technology could be used for beyond video games.
