In 2002, NVIDIA released a demo called Dawn to demonstrate the power and programmability of GeForce FX. It showcased a fairy character of extraordinary detail, seamless curves, and lifelike expressions. Among the many technology demos NVIDIA has released before and since, Dawn has remained the most memorable. It was the first time a fully animated and totally credible character was brought to life in real time. Even today, many games have yet to realize a character with Dawn's level of detail.

Fast forward ten years, and NVIDIA has brought back Dawn once again, in a demo simply titled "A New Dawn".

NVIDIA claims Kepler to be required, but it works on Fermi too...

What's your program tool (eVGA Precision, MSI AfterBurner...) you got "6.9 fps"?
But I can't show "fps" using eVGA Precision 3.0.3 but yes using FRAPS.

I have Win 7 x64 SP1 w/ 304.48beta - I got avg 20 fps (min 16 and max 28) at 1280x720 running GTX 480 and AMD X6 1055T. AMAZING! :D

So it appears that NVIDIA specific hardware aint necessary (as seen with Endless City and Alien vs. Triangles)

Go here for: A New Dawn - AMD Patch
