ATi?

ATi promises GPU physics acceleration in 2006, nothing yet.

ATi promises the "be all, end all" GPU accelerated physics in 2009, still no games almost halfway through 2011.

It's pretty obvious ATi cares a lot about GPU accelerated physics, they just can't seem to make it happen. Not....one.....game.

On the bright side, they managed to get a driver update deal with STEAM that means exactly......nothing.
