AMD Collaborates with Autodesk

AMD announced the latest industry-leading application to support open-source Bullet Physics and OpenCLآ™ industry standards. Through its collaboration with AMD, Autodesk has incorporated a new Bullet Physics plug-in, based on OpenCLآ™ standards, into the Autodesk Maya 2012 software Subscription Advantage Pack.

Now game developers and 3D artists will have access to new creative workflow capabilities in Maya to help create interactive cloth simulations on a greater range of workstations and PCs, including those based on AMD FireProآ™ professional graphics cards and AMD CPUs. AMD and Autodesk first publicly demonstrated the Bullet Physics plug-in technology at the Game Developers Conference earlier this year. At SIGGRAPH, there will be demonstrations running on systems powered by the latest AMD professional graphics products.
