Technical Committee on Audio for Games Meeting:
Saturday, October 1, 11:00 am — 12:00 pm
New console technology and increasing resources in PCs have made significant amounts of processing power and memory available to games and other interactive applications. Previous trends in game audio have revolved around squeezing audio solutions into low memory and designing effects with minimized processor usage. In contrast, current trends arise due to the vast flexibility available for interactive audio given by high processing power and more memory.
Some general trends are:
The significant shift from performing audio processing on dedicated hardware to processing on general purpose DSPs that are also used for graphics, physics, artificial intelligence, and other tasks has a number of effects:
