Unreal Engine 5 demo

Last week, Epic Games, in partnership with Nvidia, launched Unreal Engine 5 for early access, along with an example project for developers to explore, known as Valley of the Ancients. Nanite, an attempt to provide similar detail to infinity, and Lumen, a state-of-the-art global lighting system, are essential to UE5. According to the project’s creators, the highest “epic” graphics settings aim at 1080p at 30 frames per second on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. A completely new technique known as Temporal Super Resolution (TSR) offers a 4K display without clever upscaling.

These lists might be quite inconsistent, and colleagues from Asc INC have taken some time and made for us an intensive stress test on desktop PCs and laptops to learn what’s the best hardware to run Unreal Engine smoothly and at its max. According to the testing results, we have come up with our own list of recommended hardware for Unreal Engine 4.…

They shocked the gaming community quite a bit by presenting a new version of their game engine, which has been used by hundreds of games. Even Disney used it in creating the series The Mandalorian.

Unreal Engine 5 will replace the current version 4.25, and they promise photorealism at the level of CGI effects seen in movies. The main focus is the Nanite and Lumen technologies, demonstrated in a spectacular technical demo Lumen in the Land of Nanite on the PlayStation 5 console.

Nanite with virtualized micro polygon geometry allows creators to create as many details as the human …
