Postion Based Fluid Dynamics simulates water in real-time perfectly, awesomely

PhysX has developed a new way to model water in video games: Position Based Fluid Dynamics.  They throw around a lot of fancy-schmancy terms like “vorticity confinment” and “deformables simulation”, but it all adds up to uber-real looking water for the next generation of video games.  The simulation below is running on a single GTX 580.  That’s got to be good news for future consoles and current gaming rig builders.
