Nvidia demos Unreal Engine 3 running on Windows RT for the first time
Now, what does Unreal Engine 3 arriving on Windows RT mean exactly? This is the graphical engine powering the best looking games in the mobile space right now - the Infinity Blade series for example. Actually that very same Epic Citadel demo shown on the Vivo Tab RT is what was shown before Infinity Blade launched on the iPad and iOS.
So this is definitely a great early sign for the bright future of Windows RT gaming. The demo below ran at between 35fps and 45fps, which is pretty smooth (everything north of 30fps appears smooth). Check it all out below.

This is the full engine as opposed to the modified mobile version we are used to see.

wow nice, so Mass Effect 3 coming to RT soon?? :D would like to see more like Source engine running on the RT also I wonder will the 2GB RAM be enough for PC like games on RT? even the most basic games on PC these days demand recommended RAM to be 4GB

That's fine I guess, as long as desktop is there with MS Office its quite a tempting over any other tablet in market :D

And you know this how? Have you already tried porting PC games to WinRT? Do you even own a WinRT Tablet at all?!!

They can't be ported to RT from what i've read.

according to the man in the video,,, thats kinda the whole "big deal" behind this, that they CAN be ported rather easily.

so they stole the swipe gesture from Nokia and N9? Dafuq M$, you really thought we believed when you said you wanted to help Nokia?

Whatever you think MS swiped from Nokia is being paid for by the $1B per annum MS plunks into Nokia for the next three years. Besides, swipe was already present in Windows Mobile before this partnership. And one more thing, MS could not have forced Nokia into this partnership had they gotten that cool $1B deal elsewhere. Fortunately for Nokia, MS was in need of a mobile OEM and has the money and willingness to spend it, hence the $1B per year for Nokia.
