HD 5900 shows up in AMD Open CL driver

Not sure what to make of it. AMD's recently released Open CL drives has given us something to think about. Among the new cards listed in the support sheet, including the fresh HD 5800 and HD 5700 series, the driver also mentions two HD5900 parts.

Frankly, we are not sure what to make of this. It is quite possible that AMD will brand the dual-GPU incarnations of HD 5850 and HD 5870 cards as HD 5900 series, dropping the previous X2 suffix, but this is merely speculation.

ATI already won next gen Xbox deal

We've learned from industry sources that AMD / ATI has already won the GPU deal for the next generation XboX console. It looks like Microsoft was happy with first Xeons GPU and it wants to continue using the same, especially since the new ATI GPU should keep the compatibility with legacy games.

The consoles refresh was supposed to happen in 2010 but due to the recession both Microsoft and Sony have decided to push its plans for 2012 and keep the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 alive for more than it was originally planned.

NVIDIA Disables PhysX When ATI Card is Present

There is a rather lively discussion in our forums about NVIDIA’s recent decision to disable PhysX when an ATI card is present in your system. This all started with the release of NVIDIA’s 186+ drivers and, if you follow the link in the forums, you’ll see where the reasoning behind the decision is explained by NVIDIA’s customer care center.

Nvidia supports GPU accelerated Physx on NVIDIA GPUs while using NVIDIA GPUs for graphics. NVIDIA performs extensive Engineering, Development, and QA work that makes Physx a great experience for customers. For a variety of reasons - some development expense some quality assurance and some business reasons NVIDIA will not support GPU accelerated Physx with NVIDIA GPUs while GPU rendering is happening on non- NVIDIA GPUs.
