NVIDIA is holding a tech event currently in Montreal to showcase a number of the tools and technologies the company has developed to foster state of the art in game development. The event will be taking place over the next two days and we’re told there will be a number of newsworthy items revealed.

The demo ran perfectly smooth and the quality of imagery was as good as we’ve seen on any other platform to date.
