AMD and Havok demo OpenCL accelerated physics

[QUOTE]Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.(NYSE: AMD) and Havok, the premier provider of interactive software for physics simulation and content development, are presenting 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™. [/QUOTE]

Although the technology itself is not new and demos on Havok site are quite dated this is still exciting news to me cos it's gonna be rendered on a GPU thus more immersive and smooth looks.
