Tech-demo: Supersonic Sled

The tech-demos for the new GeForce GTX 480 (and GTX 470) are available.

Actually only two demos are available (Supersonic Sled and Design Garage). The two other we saw in different marketing buzz, the Water demo and the Hair demo, are not available yet. Too bad…

Anyway, GTX 400 tech-demos can be downloaded HERE.


Garage Design Tech-demo

The Garage Design is a demo based on OptiX, NVIDIA’s real time and programmable ray tracer optimized for GPUs.

I tested the demo on a GTX 260:

Supersonic Sled Tech-demo

Supersonic Sled is a demo that uses PhysX (for rigid bodies and particles), CUDA (for fluid simulation, smoke) and Direct3D 11 (rendering and tessellation).

At the time of writing, Supersonic Sled download link seems to be dead…

Can’t wait to get a GTX 480 to play with these demos ;)
