AMD backs OpenCL Bullet physics

Posted on Friday, September 18 2009 @ 02:40:07 CEST by

Bright Side of News feels the open-source Bullet Physics Library that is now getting translated into OpenCL may pose a threat to the PhysX and Havok physics technologies.
Bullet Physics Library is an open source physics library that is now getting translated into OpenCL, thanks to the effort of companies such as AMD [who offered support to developers]. Somehow, we feel that this announcement was the highlight of the launch event for the upcoming Evergreen generation of graphics cards.

In case you wondered, according to Game Developer Magazine world's most popular physics API is nVidia PhysX, with 26.8% market share [if there was any doubt that nVidia PhysX isn't popular, which was defense line from many AMD employees], followed by Intel's Havok and its 22.7% - but Open sourced Bulled Physics Library is third with 10.3%. We have no doubt that going OpenCL might be the golden ticket for Bullet.
