Many have been waiting for ATI's answer to the Ageia's PhysX card especially after the company had been showing off a method of using native physics processing on its cards at Computex.
This method involved coupling several Radeon cards together and using the combined processing power to calculate all the physics formulas needed. RD600 based cards already support the idea, although they are probably going to be phased out next year.
