Triple Play physics just around the corner

More information about ATI's long-awaited physics processing is finally trickling into light. ATI has named its GPU accelerated physics processing Asymmetric Physics Processing.

Hardware requirements for Asymmetric Physics Processing include two AMD ATI Radeon based graphics cards and a compatible CrossFire motherboard.  One Radeon may be used as a GPU with an additional Radeon acting as a physics processor.  The requirement for three Radeons to complete physics processing is only a requirement of Triple Play operation.

ATI’s Triple Play physics processing is also supported with two ATI Radeon graphics cards operating in CrossFire with an equal or lesser performing third card dedicated to physics processing. 

Chile Hardware has the full presentation for Asymmetric Physics Processing in English and Spanish.

Asymmetric Physics Processing requires two AMD ATI Radeon graphics cards for baseline processing, the two graphics cards do not need a direct physical link like CrossFire. AMD is also touting the ability to mix and match different ATI Radeon graphics cards to have greater flexibility for users that upgrade their older graphics cards.

At this time it seems AMD chipsets are the only supported platform for Asymmetric physics processing. Supported chipsets include the AMD 580X, ATI CrossFire Xpress 3200 (for Intel) and the upcoming RD790. It is unknown if the CrossFire capable Intel 975X and P965 chipsets will be supported.

Spell-check at least the headline please! Or are you trying to make an editorial statement with the "assymetric" misspelling?

LOL, dude...
Dailytech is supposed to be a reputable news site. Professional journalists should be able to spell and write correctly in whatever language they report in. It's unprofessional that Dailytech posts storys with glaring spelling and grammar mistakes. At first, I used to try to help by posting grammar and spelling corrections. I've given up now. It's obviously not going to change. That's the only reason people should stop commenting on the spelling and grammar. Not because it pisses off the staff. The staff should take some pride in their craft. It's not our fault that they chose a profession in writing and yet they have difficulty with basic spelling and grammar.

It's you're (= you are) pissing the staff off.

To avoid splitting the infinitive, it should be "you're pissing off the staff, not "you're pissing the staff off". :)

An infinitive is anything that has "to" + verb, like "to go" or "to eat."

Pissing off <-- this isn't an infinitive.

Either way, splitting an infinitive is a matter of taste. Why do you think the greatest show on Earth, Star Trek, expressed their sentiments thus: "To boldly go" instead of "to go boldly"?

Yeah I had to log in just to annoyingly correct masher2 too.

If you're going to correct someone on a split infinitive masher2, it would help if you knew what one was first.

"to annoyingly correct" is a split infinitive.

There's no infinitive in "you're pissing off the staff" or "you're pissing the staff off"

Spell check isn't rocket science, "assymetric" isn't a word. Little grammatical errors are excusable, but not doing a basic spell check is not.

Since it's a tech site, they should be using some super elite spell checker of death that can teabag all the other noob spell checkers out there.

Have you read any of the comments on other articles? I'd say the authors of dailytech spell better than probably 60% of the people that post? lol, come on.

If all we did was comment on all the posters spellings then there would be no room for actual comments about the articles. sheeeeeessh

Maybe their spell checker needs an update? Now seriously, perhaps they couldn’t be bothered with spell checking because they think that it’s important to get the news out there ASAP. I have experienced in schools the sad reality of growing illiteracy, so for me this is just a sign of the times. I just take DT for what it is, and I’m grateful for the news.

We have two writers at CES, two editors at CES and another writer at Macworld. The article was published at 12:19 and the correction was made at 12:24. I'm not here to make excuses, but I imagined the content of the article would have a larger splash than typo that was on the front page for less than 5 minutes.

Every time I see a spelling-Nazi I feel sorry for them...
Because after being critical at someone else's spelling mistake he or she will waste time and effort to post Perfect reply on a FORUM so that they won't look like an idiot.
