Ubitus is using Nvidia Grid, or at least some of it...
So Nvidia is trying to enable the cloud gaming providers, whether they themselves will do retail cloud gaming is interesting. They probably just want to sell the hardware and SDK and let others worry about the distribution model.
Very similar to their GPU approach, just supply it to whoever wants to do the retail stuff.
Very smart guy, this Jen-Hsun Huang.
Thanks for comments, everyone... this looks interesting...!
I want to get an Nvidia GTX 680 SLI but having to get a PC and play all these massive PC games, I don't have time. I'd really love super-low-latency GTX690-class full graphics over cloud. It'll be here by end of 2015 easy.

There needs to be a new type of agreement for this kind of app as Apple isn't providing the bandwidth for the purchased content. They are not really any different from 3rd party web browsers. Playing something like Dishonored on an iPad would be pretty cool.
Well, Apple could do for Nvidia Grid providers what they do for Hulu and Netflix, right? The 30% doesn't apply there... am i right?Edited by sr2012 - 1/11/13 at 2:44am
