    I must LOL at your knowledge about Cuda...

    Cuda = programming framework where you use GPU instead of CPU
    (old) AGEIA PhysX driver = programming framework to make physic calculation with the PhysX-card processor
    (new) AGEIA PhysX driver = backwards compatible programming framework, but instead of going directly to the PhysX-cards, it uses Cuda-functions to use the GPU

    Cuda is so much more then "an Nvidia re-write of Agei 'phisics'"

    Bloody hell.

    There must be at least 3 or 4 topics on this, which spell it out quite clearly.


    No, these drivers do not allow physics to run via your GPU.

    CUDA has NOTHING (repeat NOTHING) to do with nvidia PhysX.

    CUDA is merely being used to port PhysX calls into code that an nvidia GPU can process - THIS HAS NOT BEEN DONE YET.

    The nvidia PhysX drivers are just that - PHYSX DRIVERS. If you have a PhysX card, great, you now have drivers re-branded as nvidia's.


    Simple.

    What we all want to fookin really know is if there are some games now that support nvidia phsyx so that we can test what changes ! And nobody seems to fookin know that ! It would awesome a review of that with game's tests..... Strange nobody already did it.

    This question has been answered numerous times, even in this very thread.

    Currently, only 3D Mark Vantage, and UT3 have GeForce Physx enabled. More games will, but its still to be considered BETA
