2 Versions Of Unreal Engine 4 To Be Available
It appears that there will be 2 versions of Epic Game’s amazing new engine, Unreal Engine 4.
In an interview with Founder Of Epic Games, Tim Sweeny it was revealed there would be two Unreal Engine 4′s, one with a next generation renderer that would require at least 1 TFLOP of graphics performance from GPU’s which would give the engine some “unprecedented capabilities.”, and on the other hand there would be a “mainstream” renderer which would target mass market devices.
What is the target platform for UE4? What kind of hardware are gamers going to need to run UE4 based games?
Unreal Engine 4’s next-generation renderer targets DirectX 11 GPU’s and really starts to become interesting on hardware with 1+ TFLOPS of graphics performance, where it delivers some truly unprecedented capabilities. However, UE4 also includes a mainstream renderer targeting mass-market devices with a feature set that is appropriate there.
