Looks like ATI is going after another market with their GPUs.


ATI stakes claims on physics, GPGPU ground

Sounds very interesting. I hope Oleg and company are paying attention.

I would love to see BoB using all the latest and greatest technologies. Of coarse it should be scaleable to everyones computer systems but to be able to harness the best graphics and physics possible for those lucky few with the systems that can run it would be awesome. I also wish there there would have been some pictures or movies with that link.

Well the other consideration would be to use older chips (affordable) on a PCI card.

I don't think I would want to pay top dollar for the latest GPU and have it only run physics. I don't know what horsepower is really needed to do some of the modeling.

I do know that GPUs have been used in numbers crunching in the past. They are very very good at crunching numbers.

I would like to see them use it if it makes sense
