WHAT! ? YOU are VERY WRONG. IT is. What do think it is?
WHY ? :unsure:
Read THIS! this is the card I own! :ph34r:
ASUS PhysX P1 Card powered by AGEIA PhysX processor, things don’t just look real, and they act real and feel real. Prepare to be shocked by stunning massively destructible buildings and landscapes; explosions that cause collateral damage; lifelike characters with spectacular new weapons; realistic smoke, fog and oozing fluids are all now possible with the ASUS PhysX P1!
OK!, The processor IS a programable GPU as is the Nvidia version,They BOTH do the same thing. :magic:
1 > Whose software did they MODIFY to work on THEIR GPU ? Ageia thats WHO! What did Ageia make…? A GPU card that allowed HD effects in Games done with a GPU!
NVIDIA saw this and BROUGHT the Company for a reason,they wanted the software,They Then Modified it so it would work with their GPU’s within the workings of their
VIDEO CARDS! So far the earlier Drivers SUPPORTED the Ageia board,one could use Either GPU by selecting the GPU one wanted to use,but not BOTH..now they support
up to 4 Video Nvidia cards and NOT the Org Ageia card,I have a GTX 280 and wanted to use the Ageia card as the Second GPU as they do with two Video cards,one can
use one for video and the other for something else,so why is the card left out! IT is STILL being sold by ASUS!
2 > The Ageia card has been around for about 3 years,it is used in MANY Games …Crisis…GRAW 2…F.E.A.R and it,s next version, to name a few,others use a software version
called Havock! <img src='http://hqnveipbwb20/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/fear.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':fear:' />
I have HAD a Ageia card for quite a while,and KNOW very well it is a GPU card as I USED to use it with Crisis BEFORE Nvidia got their hands on it!
And now if I put the LATEST driver in The Ageia parts of the driver are GREYED out! it seem’s Nvidia don’t want us to use the card anymore! <img src=‘http://hqnveipbwb20/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/crying.gif’ class=‘bbc_emoticon’ alt=’:’(’ />
Delivering physics in games is no easy task. It’s an extremely compute-intensive environment based on a unique set of physics algorithms that require tremendous amounts of simultaneous mathematical and logical calculations.
This is where NVIDIAÂ® PhysXâ„¢ Technology and GeForceÂ® processors come in. NVIDIA PhysX is a powerful physics engine which enables real-time physics in leading edge PC and console games. PhysX software is widely adopted by over 150 games, is used by more than 10,000 registered users and is supported on Sony Playstation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and PC.
In addition, PhysX is designed specifically for hardware acceleration by powerful processors with hundreds of cores. Combined with the tremendous parallel processing capability of the GPU, PhysX will provide an exponential increase in physics processing power and will take gaming to a new level delivering rich, immersive physical gaming environments with features such as:
Explosions that cause dust and collateral debris
Characters with complex, jointed geometries for more life-like motion and interaction
Spectacular new weapons with incredible effects
Cloth that drapes and tears naturally
Dense smoke & fog that billow around objects in motion
The only way to get real physics with the scale, sophistication, fidelity and level of interactivity that dramatically alters your entertainment experience will be with one of the millions of NVIDIA PhysX-ready GeForce processors.
