    Jerusalem (Israel) – This one did not take long: We already knew that Nvidia is working on a CUDA version for x86 CPUs, but said it would leave a modification for ATI GPUs to others. Eran Badit of NGOHQ.com told us that he has done it already and was able to get the Nvidia PhysX layer to run on ATI Radeon cards.

    Whats the actual use for this??? Better 3Dmark score???

    CPU has enough power to count AI and physic.

    In UT3 with PhysX mode GPU PhysX helps quite a bit.

    No, it's just that CPU becomes the bottleneck and in that case it is faster to run both physics and graphics on GPU. It is possible to sacrifice some graphics processing power to physics processing since UT3 runs so well.

    Modern CPUs are not as well suited for this type of computational task. That includes even Quad core CPUs.
