ATI has its own GPGPU program, but we guess Cuda support on top of it won’t hurt them, as they would need Cuda to run PhysX on ATI-based cards. You need PhysX for games and Nvidia will make it The Way It’s Meant To Be Played, and there won’t be much that ATI will be able to do about it.
It should be possible to run PhysX on most of the latest ATI cards, especially the one that have Shaders, and we suspect that all cards from R600 upwards should be able to support it. ATI can also play the other card and adopt Intel’s Havoc and potentially even have support for both Havoc and PhysX. It’s definitely getting exciting.
ATI gets PhysX if its adopts CUDA
