Nvidia told analysts that that the conversion of Ageia’s physics application interface to CUDA is almost complete. To demonstrate the technology’s horsepower, Nvidia ran a particle demo similar to what have been showcased by Intel on Nehalem – at more than 10 times the speed.
We can’t really recall how long and how often true physics capability has been promised by various parties over the past three, four years. But there are more signs that stunning physics visualization in fact is becoming a reality and it appears that Nvidia is taking the lead for now. With Ageia on board, the company has a key technology and Manju Hegde, co-founder and former CEO of Ageia, confirmed that the port of Ageia’s technology to Nvidia’s CUDA is almost done.
