Enables 3D gaming that can render graphics directly to the cloud.
As well as announcing an Android-powered portable gaming system Project Shield, Nvidia further detailed a cloud gaming system at CES 2013 that it originally talked about at GTC in 2012.
Called Grid, it sports a server stack designed to optimize computer graphics. In development for five years, the stacks boasts a batch of graphics processing units, subsequently enabling 3D gaming that is capable of rendering graphics directly to the cloud.
Users can start playing a game on one device such as a tablet and then continue where they left off on another device such as a desktop. Currently in its trial phase, Nvidia Grid will be sold to MSOs and partners.
The company had initially discussed the Grid during its developer conference in May, where it said it would offer technology that would allow its chips to be shared through a number of devices via the internet.
