As a follow-up to our story yesterday which revealed the V12 engine ported by GarageGames to the Mac OS would be used as a demo app by ATI, we have now confirmed the nature of this demo. According to both sources at ATI and GarageGames, the demo is a showcase for ATI's recently-announced TRUFORM technology.
MWNY: V12 Engine Used for ATI Demo
This demo is for select members of the press and developers only, so the actual details may be protected under NDA agreements. However, as ATI has already demonstrated their next-generation chip (code-named the R200) at several PC expos recently, it seems clear that this may be the chip powering this Mac demo of TRUFORM in action. if this is the case, then the fact that this chip is already up and running on the Mac OS is quite thrilling. However, we must caution you that this information is just speculation so far, and we haven't yet had anyone go on record about it.
