NVIDIA Kal-El Glowball demo

Interested in seeing exactly what NVIDIA's quad-core Kal-El processor, which the company originally introduced back in February, is really capable of? Look no further than the clip embedded below. The video is a demo called Glowball, which shows off true dynamic lighting and some physics thrown in for good measure, all powered by NVIDIA's quad-core CPU. As you can see in the clip, everything runs buttery smooth, at least until around the 2:09 mark when two of the processors four cores were turned off, demonstrating how slow and stuttery the demo would be if it were being powered by the dual-core CPUs in use today.

Obviously the demo is pretty impressive, even if it does make the dual-core processors on the market today look, well, slow. The good news is that we won't have to wait too long to get our own hands on some Kal-El-powered hardware, as products featuring the new processor are expected to begin dropping around August. Best of all? NVIDIA has said that, when those devices do begin hitting the market, Kal-El will be 25 to 30 percent faster than what's being demoed today. So, who's excited?
