Executive Summary

Game physics is at the heart of any modern game engine which employs the laws of physics to simulate life-like movement and interaction between objects, such as rigid and deformable bodies, cloth, and water. Game physics applications are very compute and memory intensive. The ever growing quest for a high degree of realism requires more complex physics algorithms and also larger datasets. To meet the demands of game physics applications requires a computer architecture which can deliver high floating point performance and memory bandwidth. However, general-purpose many-core architectures are quickly evolving to overcome these constraints.
