    I could have sworn they said that ran on a single Titan. Also it isn't available (yet), its something Nvidia showed off themselves at their press conference along with that new human head. I imagine maybe sometime soon they will make both available

    Ok i watched it again and they don't actually mention what is powering the ocean demo (unless i completely spaced it again) But they do say the human head is run on titan, either way, nothing ill be demoing if released lol, way out of my price "willingness"

    NVIDIA Wave Works is a Real-Time Beaufort-Scale Ocean Simulation. This is an interactive demo where the user can change the Beaufort-Scale in real time. The ocean and environment respond accordingly as the wind speed increases.

    There are about 20,000 sensors around the hull of he ship that can inform the physics simulator how to respond depending on weight, the scale of the ocean and the speed of the ship. The sensor can also detect the water proximity/velocity of the ship, and depending on where the water hits, approximately 100,000 water spray particles will react properly depending on wind speed and other factors. The smoke is also fully simulated, and changes based on direction of ship and wind speed.

    Demo was ran on 2X GeForce GTX TITAN "

    Amazing, but would be better if the ship started breaking apart in the waves and wind! :D

    Here is another video showing how they can manipulate the water.

    THIS is what I wanted to see from PhysX a long time ago, instead the PhysX we have now adds nothing new to a game apart from things that look out of place and simply dont fit into the game world. They look tacked on, like Borderlands 2 the only good thing about PhysX in that was the decal damage a bullet did to the environment and even that looked out of place. This water demo on the other hand is a step in right direction!
