Physics processing unit

A new product was outlined with promises of being “the next big thing” for gamers and developers alike to bring about a world of realism like we have never seen before. We’ll test the card with a couple of the most prominent titles shortly.

A chip this size and this complex isn’t going to come cheap, at least not in its current form.

Oh this situation gets worse. Retrieved from ” https: This software fallback is key to Ageia’s world domination plans. Back to news index:: That just puts a bad taste in my mouth in general.

Is Topre Realforce the Realthing? The currently expected MSRP for a card like this: JackDaniels 12 Nov 09 at The PhysX was available from three companies akin to the way video cards are manufactured. And of course game developers as well.


It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Neutronbeam Agfia, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing It isn’t sure yet. Also VU0 is capable of providing additional vertex processing power, though this is more a property of the pathways in the system rather than the unit itself.

Zogrim 17 Nov 09 at Even though Physx was not that impressive anyway, they still rendered a piece of hardware useless that I had purchased. Ageia’s software can also handle particles for smoke, dust, etc.

The PhysX software also supports collision detection for each type of object, so that different types of objects can interact realistically. Apparently they don’t want to give away the ingredients for the special sauce this early into the game.

AGEIA PhysX Physics Processing Unit Preview

From these specs we can get quite a bit of information. I tried to tell some hardheads this on another forum.

Latest News Latest Videos. John Carmack has spoken out on the subject of dedicated physics cards and it’s not good news for Ageia. Written by Geoff Aeia.

How To Use the Ageia PhysX Card (PPU) With Latest PhysX Drivers | Geeks3D

This future configuration started materializing in the form of Heterogeneous System Architecture. Aside from transistor counts and the like, we know surprisingly little about it.

Thanks Zogrim, you confirmed what I figured months ago.

We know the SIMD exection cores must be geared to handle floating-point datatypes, for instance, and SIMD execution is probably narrower than on a graphics chip. Not exactly, but Ageia has taken on the twin challenges of building a custom physics processor and cultivating a healthy market for such a chip. The image of this card shows both PCI and PCI Express support on the same card, though we are told by AGEIA that this won’t be a retail feature but it is included on the developer cards for their testing purposes only.

Steam names the best-selling games of Nonetheless GPUs are built around a larger number of longer latency, slower threads, and designed around texture and framebuffer data paths, and poor branching performance; this distinguishes them from PPUs and the Cell as being less well optimized for taking over game world simulation tasks. This question is for testing whether you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. While working fine with ATI card on old 8.
