The Matrix Awakens: Tech demo shows the future of games

Two weeks ago the internet speculated that a new Matrix game was in the making. The secret was revealed at the Game Awards:

"The Matrix Awakens" is a tech demo from Epic Games, in which the capabilities of the Unreal Engine 5 are demonstrated.

After a brief introduction to the new virtual world by Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, players can explore it themselves.

Many details of the world can be set manually: the position of the sun, time of day and the number of pedestrians and cars can be adjusted at the push of a button.

With this demo, the Epic Games team impressively shows what is already possible with this generation of consoles and what we can expect in terms of visual quality from games ... that is, if the titles use the Unreal engine.
If you want to take a closer look at the demo, you need an Xbox Series or PS5.

New transistor technology from IBM and Samsung

How do you make a CPU faster? With more transistors! It's best to build them as small as possible so that more of them fit on one chip.
IBM and Samsung have now achieved a breakthrough that can significantly improve the performance of smartphones in the long term and massively reduce energy consumption.
With the new VTFET process, the transistors are now arranged vertically, which means that there should be space for significantly more transistors in the same area. With the same power consumption, it should be possible to double the performance compared to current chips, or with the same performance a reduction in power consumption of up to 85 percent.

The battery life of smartphones could be drastically extended this way.

The first chips with VTFET have already been successfully produced, but it may take a few years before the technology is ready for series production.
