Default NVIDIA PhysX Quick Test - 06-20-2008, 14:29 | posts: 6,462

As you guys likely know NVIDIA issued a new PhysX supporting driver to the press which driver actually already got leaked.
This driver will enable and allow a significant set of Physics functions to...

Badaboom is not yet finished and thus in development. We're keeping a close eye on it. Can't distribute the version we have though, sorry.

This just shows how important drivers/software coding is

The PhysX enabled drivers will eventually support the 8800's right?

If I keep my 8800GTS and up-grade to a 260 can I use the 8800 just for PhysX?

At the moment, no. It may be possible in the future, but nvidia has not mentioned it in any of today's releases.

Some answers to some questions:
  • PhysX will be enabled for any GeForce graphics card that will support CUDA, yes thus series 8 and newer.
  • Once finalized you could use a second GeForce card as dedicated PhysX unit yes, but it's work in progress and there is no available ETA on when that is going to happen. But it will be possible yes (according to NVIDIA's PhysX team).

So Vantage says you do better in the CPU test with this driver. That makes sense. But what Vantage fails to tell you is that PhysX will slow down your GPU while your CPU is made idle and does next to nothing. Nvidia needs to have PhsyX scale to any available hardware; multicore CPUs, multiple GPUs, or just one CPU and one GPU. Sort of like load balancing.

AMD needs to support this too, because right now they're backing Havok.

I have a Dell XPS M1730 with x9000 and 8800M GTX SLI and Ageia physx and i use 3dmax with the physx, so i can test it in real time, not some 3dmark optimized benchmark or some game...and so i will test it on crysis on cpu normal physx, on sli and non sli physx, loads of stuff i can check out, thats for the news peeps.

actually, sometimes i think what if the 8800 had a physx engine built into it and not activated and it might be less gpu performance when using physx, same as the 6 series when some million transistors where not used and we knew they existed after the video accel. came on the drivers, nVidia does that alot...but i love surprises.

This type of idea will probably be apart of the DX11 spec. They're supposed to be focusing on the standardization of physics support.
