3GS Showcases Insane Power

Firemint the developers of Real Racing one of the most highly praised and graphical intense games on the iPhone and iTouch handheld have been playing around with their new 3GS’s, and what they have been able to determine is that they just cant believe the power it was providing. They literally couldn’t slow it down!

Here is an excerpt from their blog and a nice video to demonstrate the power of the 3GS.

We’re thrilled to be showered with such praise, and it got us wondering what we can do on the new hardware. Real Racing has up to six cars on the track at any one time. Since the game uses a high fidelity physics engine, adding cars is a good test for pushing the hardware. We started our tech demo with 8 cars on the track, then 10, 12, 16 and 20, and the 3GS still didn’t break a sweat. We finally stopped when we got to 40 cars on the track at the same time, still with no perceptible drop in frame rate. We think the results are mind blowing.

I have to say this is a credit to apple and Firemint for thier impressive coding skills. It’s a shame we still see 2D apps with framerate issues, but seeing videos like this restores my faith in the device having a long shelf life.

    6 is what they limited it to. Im sure the Touch could handle 10, but the 3GS is double the speed and ram almost.

    That’s neat. How does the iPod Touch 2nd Gen do in this comparison? How many cars would it take on-screen to make it chug?
