Nvidia: Download The New Dawn Demo

The New Dawn is the name of a tech demo by Nvidia that features just how realistic a character render on PC can be, provided that it has access to the best of hardware currently available.

The tech demo shows off an impressive 40,000 tessellated strands of dynamic hair, subsurface scattering, detail maps, depth-of-field blur, tone mapping, tons of other shaders and effects.

The demo is now available for download but will only run if your PC meets the following requirements:

  • GPU: GTX 670 or 680 (GTX 670 SLI, GTX 680 SLI, or GTX 690 recommended for Ultra mode)
  • CPU: 2.5GHz Dual-Core or higher
  • Memory: 4GB
  • Disk Space: 2GB
  • Operating System: Windows 7 or Vista

For those who do not have access to a power house of a PC, they can simply watch the video of the demo below.
