SYNTH is a new alternative video game for a high-end MS windows PC's. SYNTH was designed and developed by Rhys Paul Hovey. In it's current version (1.666) it has been over two years in the making. SYNTH is 100% mathematically / proceedurally generated. This means that for all of SYNTH's graphics and levels, there is a mathematical function or process from which it was made, making it a very difficult game to program, and in the end quite scalable and unusual. Typically the graphics in a video game are "modeled" by artists with mouse and pen-like touch pads. Everything in SYNTH has a mathematical / algorithmic representation.

This is a "real time" promo shot of some of the new "holographic" looking -volumetric- 3D textures. Very cool. Tons of great looking things coming in the future for these new high memory nvidia's like the "660" line (2GB!!). Running my 560 Ti pretty slow,. "ruining the project" even with this video card, gameplay greatly lamed at 7 FPS. But the 3D surface math is HOT! The project trudges on,. I'd love to hear from some people who have some "upper end" GPU's and see what kind of frame rates you get. HINT: Burning SYNTH to CD, can help the frame rate. Download it, burn it, and play it from the CD. It should "not" have an affect, but it may. Always the whole "MOS SLOW" thing,. you just never know,. I'd like to hear from people.

as for ATI,. I think they will fix the problem before I do,. in fact it may be working already,. some other video cards could be on the rise as well in the next few years,. this all is really openGL 2.0 with GLSL,. nothing to incompatible. No "nvidia" specific extensions were used. just arb stuff really.

Love to hear from someone about performance on a "660" ti,. they have like 1300 shaders, and my 560 Ti, has like 380 or something weird. 6-7 is my min framerate on the 560 Ti. It makes me agro,. but the game is looking good.
