Gaikai and Nvidia deal to stream Hawken using “GPU-less” tech

Gaikai has signed a deal with Hawken developer Adhesive to stream its multiplayer mech shooter when it enters open beta this December.

The game was demonstrated during the keynote at this year's GPU Technology Conference', running on an Nvidia twin-Kepler set up capable of sending high-end games to any device able to receive encoded video – even if it doesn't have an in-built GPU.

Watch the video below to hear Gaikai founder David Perry talk about features such as social network-powered instant drop-in multiplayer, the latest developments in Cloud gaming and why he believes Gaikai will beat Hollywood in terms of reach.
