Nvidia says the minimum system requirements for the demo are a GeForce 8800 Ultra graphics card, a copy of Windows XP, and 512MB of system memory. However, that's not strictly true: we tried to run the demo on a system with a GeForce 7900 GTO graphics card, and it behaved, albeit at less-than-smooth frame rates. Far from being a fancy DirectX 10 exclusive, this demo should allow even users of systems a couple of years old to enjoy seeing Doug Jones' individual skin pores rendered in real time.
Update: 2560x1600 screenshots of the demo are available here on the Beyond3D forums.
