Intel shows off physics demo on Nehalem

Posted on Thursday, April 03 2008 @ 03:20:24 CEST by

Intel showed off a new Smoke demo at the IDF in Shanghai, illustrating the power of its upcoming Nehalem processors:
An Intel representative showed us the demo at the company’s Intel Developers Forum in Shanghai today. The scene starts off quiet with a wooden shack, a small forest of trees, and several animals jumping and flying about. But then meteors slam into the building and set everything on fire. Of course the fire then spreads to the surrounding trees and within seconds the entire screen is aflame.

The rep told us that up to 60,000 particles are tracked and rendered in the demo and that nothing was “pre-baked”. Running on a single thread, the scene visibly stuttered. Everything ran smoothly when all eight threads were enabled.
You can check out the video at TG Daily.
