Wow that's amazing and glad to see they're taking advantage of SPUs in PS3. Also this should be in console thread since it's about PS3.

I can't wait for this game on PC.

Not that impressive, it's about what already is possible with multicore CPU.

Both impressive videos, and the last one just using CPU power is amazing, it clearly shows that a good CPU can do a lot for physics effects if you code your engine properly.

Another cool vid: http://www.viddler.com/explore/HardOCP/videos/37/

Running 1920x1200 with a GTX280 & a 3.2 GHz Quad.

Loving it

AWESOME.

People are going to complain though. Putting so much on the processor like GTA4 did means that typical PC gamers, who worry about GPU and not much else, will get slowdowns when physics stuff is happening. I can hear the "poorly optimized crap" calls already.

I don't agree.

Much because of how the CPU vs GPU is evolving. While the future CPU market is also moving towards more cores, it is extremely slow moving. In 2006 Intel released it's first Quad core CPU, and next year or late this we should get a 6-core CPU. Compare this to a GPU from 2006 versus today. The GPU is moving almost exponentially, while CPU is evolving fairly flat.

It is true that a single GPU has a huge graphics load, and potential GPU physics has to be balanced versus that. But consider how many ALU a GPU will have in a few years (ATI has 800 today). And maybe multi-GPU will be common.

Physics calculations scale really good with number of cores afaik. Sure a single ALU is much much weaker than a full CPU core. But it still doesn't compare given the numbers of ALU and its potential for big leaps in the future.

Even the Larrabee is a sign that Intel knows CPU is locked in slow development compared to GPU's.

Well their we have it, ppl will soon ***** again that bla bla my super roxxors hardware cant run it, the end of Pc gaming is coming. I can allready hear them as you said Velvet bad optimizations and all that crap will follow like a storm.

Well the fuk.. devs should have used nVidias physx insteed!!
