I think it will be another 10-15 years before we see a TB card.

512mb vram back in 2004 was ultra high end, but it was need to max half life 2 and doom 3

we're already at 4GB, by 2015 expect 6GB to be the new standard with 8GB in ultra high end cards

i could see 1TB debuting in gpu's by 2016 in the $1000 video cards


You absolutely do not need 512MB VRAM to max Half-Life 2 and Doom 3, I maxed HL2 on my Radeon X800XL with 256MB and Doom 3 on my 7950/8800 with 256MB of VRAM. As far as 4GB is concerned, that's only on the ultra high-end cards/SLI setups, and you only need that much VRAM if you are A.) using insanely high resolutions or B.) multiple monitors.

That should be enough to render a 3D human model, complete with pores, internal organs, blood vessels, cells, small hair bits, and even bacteria on skins.

I could not imagine that when playing a game and trying to zoom in the character model is just like using a microscope in real life.


I hope they actually put more effort into making human characters move/animate/act convincingly first. No more of these dead-eyed mannequins shuffling around pre-determined paths carrying out dull, scripted actions.

Since you're always wrong, I fully expect this happening relatively soon.
