i garuntee that two years from now we see games that make PGR3, gears of war, and metal gear solid 4 look like crap.
oh and hello everyone! this is my first post and i look forward to posting here, i have indepth knowledge on all things consoles so ill mainly be posting in the console forum.
The logic and embedded DRAM on the daughter die is what allows the Xbox 360 GPU to essentially offer "free" anti-aliasing, which Microsoft enforces through requiring developers to support a minimum of 2X AA in all Xbox 360 titles. Although we were originally told back at E3 that all Xbox 360 titles would support 4X AA, it seems that the statement has since been revised to 2X or 4X AA. We're not certain why the change was made, as 2X and 4X are both effectively "free" on the GPU, but there may be something we're missing.

Except the fact UE3.0 based games won't launch before '07?
