AMD to launch Havoc on GPU when it's faster
If you remember, Ageia's Physics would get some cool physics in original Ghost Recon Advanced Warrior but it would also cause the graphics performance to drop. This is not what AMD wants to re-live and we were told whenever AMD decides to do it, that it has to be done right.
This indicates that Physics + Graphics on ATI's GPUs should end up faster and not slower than CPU accelerated Phsycs and the FPS that you are getting from a graphics card alone. This is a nasty task as you need to take a part of GPU to do the physics while the other part will do graphics and somehow you are doomed to lose a FPS or five.

Interesting. I agree that usually there hasn't been enough GPU to go around already without having physics running on it as well. But with AMD shifting focus to multi-core cards and Intel going to a many-core architecture, the probably of having some extra time on a core or two to spare seems likely in the relatively near future. It's an interesting time for hardware.
