Creative have been showing off some of their new Zii EGG developer device‘s 3D gaming skills, with a video of the iPod touch-like handheld running a 3D OpenGL ES enhanced racing game complete with accelerometer control.

The ZMS 05 bundles all of Creative’s StemCell Computing hardware, and uses a standard SODIMM connector to hook up to third-party I/O board. The company envisage it slotting into future nettops, IPTV systems and internet-connected digital picture frames. The ZMS 05 processor has a USB 2.0 controller, three bidirectional video controllers, analog HDTV encoder, and various other connectors, while the board also has a power management unit, ethernet controller and an audio DAC.
With all that, the ZMS 05 can handle 720p video playback, OpenGL ES 3D graphics such as for GPS navigation, real-time encode/decode of H.264 video and more. Full details in the video below.
