NVIDIA took the stage during CES 2013 and introduced a new product called NVIDIA Grid which, in very basic terms, allows users to install an application on a smart TV or an Android tablet, such as the ASUS Transformer Infinity, and play games that are rendered over the cloud on one of NVIDIA’s “Grid” graphics solutions.
That means, essentially, that users can play games that are rendered elsewhere, not on the TV or tablet they’re accessing it from. We’re just getting a small glimpse at it now, and it’s the first “integrated system product” that will be sold to partners and other OEMs who wants to allow customers to stream it. We had a chance to see a demo and the technology is truly amazing.
The early partners include Playcast, cybercloud, Cloud Union and several others. We can’t wait to see this implemented in consumer products soon.
