    Windows 7: Play Crysis Without a GPU

    I guess it would be ok if you dont mind running your games at 5-10 fps...but it a great advance.

    Windows 7: Play Crysis Without a GPU

    I wonder how the effect will be for older graphics cards?
    ... not for Crysis, but for any of the other DirectX 10 games that are curently unable to played on them

    OH, I forgot, I would need something to update Pixel Shader 2.0 to something higher, so the new games wont run on old stuff anyway I guess

    Be interesting to see if anything. Even if it wouldn't run the newer games it would be nice to have a go at some classics .
