    Computex 2006 - Taipei : ATI demo Havok FX acceleration on Radeon X1K GPUs

    ATI are demonstrating Havok FX acceleration for the first time at Computex 2006, using a trio of installed cards in a system to do so, pairing Crossfire with a another card just for the physics. Check out our story here.
    MOLLY AND POPPY!

    I think I said it before when Ageia's stuff was in the news - they're unlikely to be at the forefront of physics in games as the big boys (like ATI) have far more power in terms of marketing to both the end user and the developer. It's also nice to note that the card they used is fairly low end and yet seems to do the job rather well - at half the price of ageia's hardware.. I find it quite appealing - hang onto that old vid card and use it for physics instead. Nice.

    I don't think the 3 slot thing is as important - SLI/crossfire is a very narrow market and buying two high-end graphics cards is out of the range of most of us (or at least those of us who are married and wish to stay that way) plus we're seeing multi-gpu single card solutions now in any case.

    Ageia face a real struggle now - particularly in light of their terrible launch (rubbish performance in GRAW for example) and that many developers already happy with using havok in software will find this a more appeal transistion. I wonder what nVidia is going to pull out the bag?

    Is it just me that thinks things are getting a little silly these days, 3x Vod cards and a 1000Watt PSU, no wonder were experiencing Global Warming!, and where the hell do I stick my Sound card in a rig like that??, cant they just make longer PCB's with a Physics co processor on the same PCB??
