In the latest in a series of interviews with industry sources at Sharky Extreme, they have posted an interview with ATI's Terry Makedon. Terry answers some highly discussed questions regarding Catalyst drivers, CrossFire, PPU calculations, Windows Vista support, and much more. Check out the latest interview here.
Terry Makedon: Physics is certainly the "hot topic" of the day. ATI's Radeon X1000 series products are the best GPUs today for general purpose computing. In fact, if you revisit some of our launch materials you will see we had a demo which showed real-time waves calculating wind speed impact and direction. When compared to CPU calculations the performance of ATI's GPU was significantly higher. While there is currently no plans for a slider type feature, ATI's CrossFire multi-GPU platform is ideal for physics calculations.
