We’ll test the card with a couple of the most prominent agia shortly. Archived from the original on Ageia’s software can also handle particles for smoke, dust, etc.

John Carmack has spoken out on the subject of ageai physics cards and it’s not good news for Ageia.

CPUs are good at many things, but offloading certain jobs to custom hardware is often faster, more energy efficient, and enables more consistent performance. If you want Nvidia PhysX support then buy an Nvidia card that supports it. A quarter century tour; a Space Marine’s job is never done. The specs we currently have on the card are as follows: I just wonder if my PPU will support OpenCL in the future — it hardly compares in raw performance to the behemoth GPUs out there, but it is far more powerful than your average CPU when it comes to such tasks, so it would be nice to help out with scientific computing.


The product is set to be available to add-in card users and system integraters starting in Q4 of this year; hopefully we’ll see them and software using them ready in time for the holiday buying season. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. 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.

Ageia aims for physics coprocessing Since Ageia first started making noise about accelerating gaming physics calculations in hardware, folks have been raising questions about whether such a thing makes sense. When we first looked at the PhysX features in UT3, we were a bit non-plussed.

It is an example of hardware acceleration. Branch prediction Memory dependence prediction.

They are different — but you are using them for two completely different tasks — each of which they were designed for. Zogrim 10 Jan 10 at 8: Update May 2, Unfortunately, the ageoa of current titles with PhysX support is depressingly short. November 1 October 2 April 3 March 3 January 2. The drivers after 8.


Views Read Edit View history. Ageia is also coy about the clock speed of the PPU. UT3 PS3 delayed until next year? I have no issues at all with PhysX because I run a card that supports it.

I just realize that, in the foreseeable future, Nvidia is not where I want to place my consumer-power. Is it a boycott? Physics has been one of those ageai buzzwords for a while now, and it looks like the company that raised the awareness could well be on the road to acquisition.

The amount and speed of the memory on the card might suprise some of you as well, as many of you are still running on GPUs with MB of memory!
