Hi guys, there are some videos out for a while now demonstrating the potential of next generation graphics:

Luminous engine

Unreal Engine 4

CryEngine3
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWvgETOo5ek

Perhaps it is too early to speculate, perhaps not, but what kind of hardware components do you think will be required to deliver the kind of amazing in game graphics demonstrated in these videos?

cry engine 3? current hardware able to run it just fine (crysis 2). in case of crysis 3 you might need card with strong tessellation engine though. i mean just look at the toad in one of crysis 3 trailers :p 

as for the other two i can't say for sure because so far there is no game that available in stores today using both engine. but in my opinion current hardware most likely have the grunt to run those engine. the problem is current console. for sure both 360 and PS3 won't be able to run games with all of the engines feature enabled due to lack of raw power from their old hardware

^The tessellation on Crysis 3 looks crazy, looks like it'll melt cards. Its like Crysis all over again -- maybe GPU's won't be able to run it maxed out? That'd be funny if that would happen again.

Tessellation hey *strokes chin* I remember seeing this card:

http://www.umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=1...

and in its list of features it boasted superior tessellation and has a convincing looking comparison. I was just wondering, can a card actually make a significant difference like the one illustrated here? Also thank you for replying to my first ever post on tom's hardware :)
