Physx In Ati

Recommended Posts

Can anybody explain me in short what is Physx? & Guys if ever Ati got PhysX will Ati give it to its existing 4800 series owners. i mean that is PhysX can be include as a software update or a driver update by ati later or it is a hardware thing.

I was going to ask a similar question. Does anyone has an AMD / ATI single or Crossfire setup with a Physx card? If so, how's the rendering of graphics as well as game performance? I really would like to know as I'm debating as to purchase a Physx card.

NVIDIA PhysX is a powerful physics engine enabling real-time physics in leading edge PC and console games. PhysX software is widely adopted by over 150 games, is used by more than 10,000 developers of all types and is supported on Sony Playstation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and PC. PhysX is optimized for hardware acceleration by massively parallel processors.

PhysX is developed by nVIDIA so i thinked, it would'nt be used in Ati Radeon. maybe ati will invent new software generation as same as PhsyX technology. Example like HONDA developed VTEC and TOYOTA developed VVTI. they are same technology but different in titles.

nVidia is helping ATI get PhysX working on ATI GPUS. ;)

That is something different. ATi is not cooperating with that becasue it is an individual user modifying and changing their software, which they do not like.

 

That is not an "official" project, just something a very clever tweaker has cooked together.

I thought nvidia bought Ageia earlier this year...and with that, they developed the PhysX support through the CUDA based graphics cards.

 

I think you ATI guys might just have to wait and see :unsure:
