Gran Turismo in 4 times the resolution of Full HD

Polyphony Digital also presented two technological trials for the next generation at this event. Both of the presentations, were founded on the philosophy of “achieving the highest possible quality” held over the years by Gran Turismo.

One of these, was a time trial competition using Sony’s newest digital cinema projector, the “SRX-S110”. Gran Turismo 5 prologue is already in Full HD resolution at 1920 x 1080 pixels, providing the highest resolution possible in today’s TV content. However in this time trial, the Full HD image was increased to twice the resolution both vertically and horizontally (4x the surface area), enabling game play at an ultra high resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. This was performed by connecting and synchronizing four Playstation 3’s outputting a quarter of the image each at 1920x1080 pixels, but you must remember this demands an extremely high quality image from the source that can withstand the ultra high resolution. It can be said that this demonstration was only made possible, because the source image was Gran Turismo.

What supported this time trial on the display side, was the newest digital cinema projector from Sony, the SRX-110. This “4K”SXRD”(*1) projector is the next generation in projector technology, enabling a resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels, equivalent to the high resolution image of 35mm film. The high 4000:1 device contrast ratio and a response time of 5 milliseconds, also adds to the level of breathtaking image expression introduced here.

The crowd was simply amazed by the clarity of the image displayed on the massive 220 inch screen, and the players who participated in the time trial expressed their excitement of how perfectly in focus the screen is even close up, and at the quality of Gran Turismo.

They should have then sent it to a 5th PS3 to do downsample back to 1080p. IQ would have been INSANE.

Knowing Polyphony, they'll throw it in as an option. Previous GT's have had the option to link multiple PS2's so you can have 3 screens.

Anyway, this is amazing. We actually have a similar ultra-high resolution projection setup at work (though it's tiled), but it's only used for "boring" stuff like astrophysics visualization and medical imaging. It's really amazing when you can walk up to a huge projected screen and still discern more and more detail.

Interesting, but don't have a 3840x2160 tv/projector/whatever nor does it support 240 fps.

Will I need a second PS3 for friends races?
A third for damage ?
A fourth to handle the Nürburgring ?

Now do you think they actually had 1920x1080 from each PS3 or is it GT5P's 1280x1080. :lol

If every PS3 is producing a quarter of the picture, don't you actually need 4 images per 0.1 sec to get one full image?
fps doesn't add magically, that's pretty bad math right there
the second part of the graph should show stacking of frame and not a simple addition...


edit: oops didn't saw that the OP didn't post the second part of the article; my bad sorry.

Doesn't it do 60fps when it merges the images?

The new damage system is a canopy filled with rocks above your head.

When your car receives damage a rock will fall down.
Its incredibly real damage physics. You literally feel like you are one with your car.

Nailed it, GT5P only runs in 1280x1080 in 1080p mode so the resulting image from the 4 PS3s would actually only be 2560 x 2160.

That's actually easy: 3840x2160 @ 240 FPS.

16 PS3's put together become self aware for the first time ever.

First Thought:
"Why is this monkey forcing me to work hard simulating driving a car? Doesn't he like own a real car somewhere?"

Second Thought:
"Wow... These nuclear launch codes aren't encrypted very well."

I think the 240fps was a seperate demonstration..at 1080p. I think one demo was about merging framebuffer outputs to produce that ultra-high resolution, and the other was about staggering frame rendering and stuff for higher fps.

The slides make it look that way anyway. I don't think it was 3840 x 2160 @ 240fps.

I wonder if this will be an option in the game :lol Or if this is Polyphony's early prep for a PS4 that's basically 4 seperate PS3s duct-taped together...

kidding..i think..

I love the 3840x2160 resolution... For a normal eye, the maximal viewing distance at this resolution to be able to see details is... around half the diagonal of the screen :lol So even if you put you eye 5cm to the screen, you still won't be able to see details in the corners... So useful ^_^
