NVIDIA GoForce 5500: The More You Know

Did you know that the NVIDIA GoForce 5500 mobile GPU is capable of running Quake 3 at full specs on a cell phone? I didn’t and it kind of weirds me out.

I remember back when Quake 3 first came out. The system requirements were so demanding that I had to do a full overhaul of my computer. Now it can run on a cell phone with all of its features enabled. Crazy talk.

What you see is the NVIDIA developers unit. It allows them to interchange parts freely. It has a faster processor than most cell phones, but I’m still impressed that the GPU is capable of this. It’s no small task.
