Want your phone’s graphics to match those of top gaming systems such as the Xbox 360? Just wait until about 2014 when graphics hardware giant NVIDIA estimates that smartphone graphics might whip those of the popular gaming console.
According to a chart showing yearly graphic performance of console, PC, and mobile devices, it looks like your smartphone could soon host the same type of graphics processing unit (GPU) as the Xbox 360.
Apple’s new iPad, with its stunning Retina display, makes games such as Infinity Blade Dungeons look even crisper. But could your smartphone replace your Xbox gaming system? Maybe not yet — at the moment this is just speculation. Plus it’s been six years since Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo have updated their consoles. It’s possible sharper graphics are on everyone’s “to-do” list.
Would you prefer to play games on your smartphone, console or both, if the graphics were both top-notch? Tell us in the comments.
