New nano-technology developed by the Australian National University could see e-games players experience much faster rendering on their consoles, according to an ABC report.
It says an international team of scientists, based in Australia and Germany, has designed a tiny “nano-antenna” – 100 times thinner than a human hair – which could improve the speed at which data is processed for games.
“Hardcore gamers would really like to have a much smoother experience, as the graphics are currently a bit pixilated, even in the best games,” said research team leader Prof. Dragomir Neshev, pictured.
“This nano device allows the data to be transmitted in optical wires between the processors in the gaming console. This means the data can be transmitted at a very high speed and the rendering and the gaming experience can be a lot smoother.”
Noting that gaming consoles represent practically the most powerful computing that is happening for everyday people, Neshev said he hopes the technology will be on the market “soon”. As do all right-thinking citizens …
