With a new interior demo, Unreal Engine 4 has captivated the hearts of the gamers around the world. The demos I saw were shown on a GTX 960 and GTX 980. Sadly, the GTX 980 one didn’t show any temperature or FPS panels. Since there wasn’t any major difference between the both,so you can assume that we’re talking about both, but GTX 960 in specific. The PC which displayed the demo had 8 GB of RAM and 2 GB VRAM.
The demo shows the footage or gameplay whatever you want to call it in the form that someone’s wearing a VR headset. The guy walks around the luxurious apartment as if it were located in Dubai or something. Since the GTX 960 is a top tier card from Nvidia which is among those who support the Maxwell architecture and DirectX 12, the video showed a constant 60+ FPS except for a few places. For instance, when near the fire and the TV the FPS dropped to around 35-50 FPS.
One thing that was also noticeable was that the things which in real life had smooth textures and stuff were looking as if they were real, but obstacles and things like fire, leaves, fruits and the animal skin rugs looked unrealistic. In some sense, natural things were a bit too much for the Unreal Engine 4.
Another thing which is worth mentioning is that the GPU had a constant temperature of around 62-67℃ but on the other hand there could also be the element of water cooling present.
On a lighter note, it could be possible when VR becomes mainstream that people will start buying apartments like these for real or even virtual money.
The latest version of Unreal Engine 4 is Unreal 4.8 which claimed over 189 changes and is the largest update for the Engine.
