I heard that 40 teraflops would be needed for photorealism graphics.

20 years?

Nvidia will nail it within 2 years. AMD will take ~5 eons.

It's probably there. They're just sitting on the tech, milking every gradient on the way.
With deeper knowledge and experience, everything else becomes more shallow.

If the computeperformance progresses how it progressed over the last 7 years, the this would take ~10-12 years. At least in theory. In reality we will hit some kind of physical limitation in a few years. Also teraflops are a bad measurement fpr gamingperformance.

Time to break out the calculator...

First, GPUs need either 256MB cache or 1TB memory bandwidth to be a mainstream feature in order to allow 40 TFLOPs to be useful.

That 256MB cache represents the target frame buffer sized for 64bit per pixel at 7680x4320 resolution. This will be enough to allow 8K, but it will be awesome for 4K HDR resolution, as you need more than 32bit per pixel to permit HDR color range.

Maybe a Quantum CPU with volta's next gen/successor - so prolly 5 years.

And that's just for graphics realism, to say nothing of the CPU power/memory bandwidth for the realistic physics/AI neural networks etc. games would need to feel realistic vs. just looking it. Unfortunately game AI and physics have advanced at a woefully slow pace as all the emphasis is on the graphics, but everything in the worlds is bolted down and the NPCs have the intelligence of ants.

you realize quantum computing requires temperatures not just below 0c, but actually below 1k, right?
