The iPad 2, or I guess more specifically, the A5 chip is going to be an absolute beast for 3D gaming.…
Google's ANGLE project, launched today, will allow their Chrome OS to be able to access graphics hardware using the OpenGL ES 2.0 API. What this means to you: 3D graphics in your browser!
With some elbow grease, we've been able to play Doom on our WebOS devices for a while, but now we can do so without any messy terminal commands. Oh, and there's a playable version of Quake, too.
