    ...so will the minimum hardware specs required to support those graphics.

    Making today's i7 look like my humble 8 year-old single-core P4. Not that I can complain though - it sure seems like a step forward http://forums.mydigitallife.net/vb4_style/smilies_default/smile.gif

    I kind of disagree with the title; I don't think we will be seeing this concept become reality for quite a while - at least not within 2012. Realistically, the existing hardware of today's home-user PCs wouldn't be able to cope http://forums.mydigitallife.net/vb4_style/smilies_default/confused2.gif

    Hardware does not matter if you play the new games for example at onlive.com. ;)

    No, then you can use for example this onlive hardware,
    h ttp://onlive.com/game-system
    and TV, or game console, pc, android and more. ;)

    With my ITX Intel D525 1.80 GHz and high-speed Internet this Onlive-Service runs perfectly.

    lol - For the ~1500 dollars I'm saving for a high-end PC I can play ~20 years there and since coming Onlife-Service and others going very soon to Europe. The future for High-End Gaming is the Cloud no other i think.
