Over the course of many beers, we discussed the PS3, PhysX and the future of Epic – so check out the interview inside. The acceleration of specific, particularly intensive computing problems using custom hardware can be a very potent thing, as the rise of custom graphics hardware in the past decade has demonstrated. The answer is simple: Video game hardware Computer physics engines Coprocessors. NVidia CUDA provides a little more in the way of inter-thread communication and scratchpad-style workspace associated with the threads.

The PPU has “many copies” of Ageia’s physics processing core onboard, but we don’t know exactly how many. Nvidia announced that PhysX will ppj be available for some of their released graphics cards just by downloading some new drivers.
ASUS’s AGEIA PhysX P1 Card – Legit ReviewsTaking The ASUS PhysX P1 Card For a Test Drive
Back to pppu index:: Several other technologies in the CPU-GPU spectrum have some features in common with it, although Ageia’s product was the only complete one designed, marketed, supported, and placed within a system exclusively as a PPU. Thanks Zogrim, you confirmed what I figured months ago. But they are not incompatible cards.
aeia Well, while this is technically true, you have to consider the fact that on any high-end system, the graphics cards have dual-slot coolers. The acceleration of specific, particularly intensive computing problems using custom hardware can be a very potent thing, as the rise of custom graphics hardware in the past decade has demonstrated.
Physics processing unit
Not only does that fact open the door for a custom physics processor, but the parallel nature of the task could help turn physics acceleration into a solid long-term ageiia business. Tomasulo algorithm Reservation station Re-order buffer Register renaming.
Data dependency Structural Control False sharing. The Future of PC Gaming Zogrim 1 Oct 09 at I just realize that, in the foreseeable future, Nvidia is not where I want to place my consumer-power.
Logitech’s intelligent solution to their smart home restores Harmony. Ageai methodology is simple enough: If you follow this logic through to the end, these are also the guys who eschew on-board sound in favour of a Creative X-Fi soundcard.
Because the graphics card running with it is not an Nvidia? JackDaniels 12 Nov 09 at A chip this size and this complex isn’t going to come cheap, at least not in its current form. But what AGEIA is hoping game developers will be able to do with their hardware is much more than simply allowing you to use certain items, instead they want you to be able to use ANY items to destroy any other item.
Video game hardware Computer physics engines Coprocessors. Its feature-set and placement within the system is geared toward accelerating game update tasks including physics and AI; it can offload such calculations working off its own instruction stream whilst the CPU is operating on something else.
Or was the wrong screenshot posted? Will I ever purchase a product from Nvidia again? Written by Geoff Richards.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Update May 2, If you want Nvidia PhysX support then buy an Nvidia card that supports it.
That just puts a bad taste in my mouth in general. When we first looked at the PhysX features in UT3, we were a bit non-plussed. Archived ageiia as title Webarchive template wayback links Articles needing additional references from March All articles needing additional references.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone. July 1 March 3 January 1. MutoidMan Have you tried to install newest PhysX drivers above 8.
