Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

GPU acceleration for physics: does UE4 support or are there plans for it?

So, the last time I've seen debates on this, it has been more than an year ago. I couldn't find accurate updates on this topic, hence I thought of asking here if UE4 does finally support GPU acceleration to be used on physics (from massive collision detection/reaction to gravity, cloth, etc). If not, are there any plans for doing so? I searched for it on Trello's roadmap and didn't find anything.

I have been doing research on collision handling and for modern performance-hungry games, it seems obvious that the future of physics calculation for many applications lays in the GPU multi-parallel processing power. Thus, it would be a shame to not be able to explore that fully with UE4.

Thanks for any clarification.

Product Version: UE 4.9
