Got an appreciation for PC graphical evolution and just over two hours to kill? Then this video by YouTube user Perfect Hand Productions is right up your alley.
The journey through the incremental improvement in graphical performance in PC graphics technology is fascinating to watch, especially if you're nostalgic for some of the titles that are featured in the video. Starting at the turn of the millenium in the year 2000, the graphical evolution video takes us all the way to present day, highlighting the accomplishments of games and 3D benchmarking tools alike. It really is interesting to compare performance and image quality over 2001's Max Payne vs the much more recent Batman: Arkham City; It's also interesting that while graphics have really improved over the years, many techniques in development have remained the same.
The graphical evolution video was used almost exclusively with Nvidia graphics cards and products.
