AMD and Havok presented new, optimized executions of Havok's physics middleware on AMD platforms at the 2009 Game Developers Conference. The demonstrations include the first OpenCL supported execution of Havok Cloth.
Havok offers a completemodular suite of products that help visual and interactive content developers create more realistic games and cinematic special effects.
"Unlocking the parallel processing capability of AMD's hardware provides real advantages to our customers, and the greater the total computing resources available, the better the gaming experience developers can deliver," said David Coghlan, vice president of development for Havok.

New ATI FirePro V7750
In related news, AMD also today announced the availability of the ATI FirePro V7750 graphics accelerator for the high-end professional market. The ATI FirePro V7750 delivers features that matter most to these users at $899 MSRP.
The ATI FirePro V7750 graphics accelerator is available on HP workstations.
Based on a new generation GPU with 320 unified stream processing units, the ATI FirePro V7750?s ultra parallel processing architecture maximizes throughput by automatically directing graphics horsepower where it?s needed. Intelligent management of computational resources enables enhanced utilization of the GPU to enable real-time rendering of complex, large models and scenes while increasing interactivity when animating. In addition, the card accelerates ATI Stream applications, utilizing the GPU to offload the CPU for specific compute-intensive workloads.
The ATI FirePro V7750 also features increased connectivity capabilities, including multiple DisplayPort outputs and a Dual Link enabled DVI output, which together, generate a multi-monitor desktop of more than 5000 pixels wide in a single-slot form factor. It has 1GB of frame buffer memory and a 30-bit display pipeline.
