Got a new GFX card, any suggestions for demos/intros to watch ?

category: general [glöplog]
I just bought a new graphic card (GTX970). It's nothing fancy but still big improvement over what I had before.

Is there any demo intro i should definitely watch ? I'm thinking of something pretty heavy, especially pixel shader side.

What I watched already :
2nd stage BOSS

Numb Res
Agenda Circling Forth

Also if you really want to trial your card, you can enable DSR x4 resolution (4k @ 3140x2160), some demos look really stunning with it, others don't work at all (like the ones mentioned above) :)

Go for the latest Fairlight demos. They are hardware killers.

I just played around with my setup today and tweaked a bit here and there and gained quite a lot (i5-4670k 4000 Mhz, gtx 680, GPU1241Mhz, MEM1723 MHz).

Then I thought, NOW bitch, her I come Numb Res - but no :( Numb Res came to me and killed everything. Still painstakingly slow 5 years after it's birth, and well, OK, not running this on a top notch modern state of thartsy fart gfx card, but still somthing better than a 480 as the info recommends :/

But I'm looking forward to hear about you running those old demos on a 970!

To my knowledge this kills every card when drawing the 2d "snørkels ftw!" :)

Recent Cocoon demos are pretty demanding with the GI.

I think the trophy needs to be handed to cocoon! All of the fairlight demos new and old run at 1080p on my 970. We stand divided works at 720 but shapeshifter is a glitchy stuttering mess!
