Interesting. So they are running that all through the gpu -we need to get our graphics gpus up into the multi gigaherz range with gigabytes of ram.

Amazing stuff. All that on a GPU.

I may sound foolish in asking so, but I'm not really into all this stuff, I personally don't think it looks all that amazing, I mean, it's an orb with some light, isn't it? Could someone please explain me what's so special about all this?

(Oh, and what's a GPU? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif )

if you know much about optics, that is fricking cool. If it works that good on the 5800, i wonder how good it would work on my 9800pro/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
