ATI: "Graphics cards can do physics processing"

Posted on Thursday, October 06 2005 @ 23:33:02 CEST by

AGEIA's PhysX physics processing unit (PPU) looks pretty nice but today ATI said its chips are already capable of processing physics and it should be only a matter of time before graphics giants like NVIDIA and ATI itself enable the capability on their graphics cards.
Raja Kodouri, a senior architect at ATI Technologies told X-bit labs that the company’s graphics processors, including the RADEON 9700, which is the world’s first DirectX 9.0 graphics processing unit (GPU), are capable of processing arrays of vertexes, similar type of operation that AGEIA’s physics processing units (PPUs) can perform. The arrays of data should be processed using pixel shader processors within a chip, the architect said.
