@aras would posting updates on fpga projects be too of topic for this instance? i've been slowly working on building a synthesizer, which seems like bit of a stretch for this instance, but building a rudimentary gpu some day sounds like fun and somewhat more likely to be relevant?

Tried out the ray traced quake 2 tonight. Its kind of weird going from playing new games at max settings at 4k and barely push the 2080 ti, and then playing quake 2 (but with especially nice reflections etc) and get about 30hz.

Now I want to play / make something colorful which makes excessive use of caustics and transmission. Don't really care so much about pbr Realism though.

Would be great to have more gamedevs involved in WebGPU, github.com/gpuweb/gpuweb, development. Interestingly enough there's talk of a C API for it so you could program against that and potentially use WASM to run your game in the browser.

incredibly detailed home made snes mini build, European and US variations of the console, complete with tiny working controllers, NFC cartridges. He even made super gameboy cartridges :O daftmike.com/2017/09/snespi.ht
