NVIDIA PhysX Tech Report - NVIDIA PhysX Tech Report
Thu, October 01 2009 | 4:03PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"Both NVIDIA and ATI graphics processors are based on a unified architecture with programmable stream processors that can handle not only traditional graphics (vertex, geometry, texture) processing but also general purpose computing operations. However, NVIDIA have an ace up their sleeves that currently gives them an edge over ATI and that ace is called PhysX. PhysX is NVIDIA's proprietary technology. Only NVIDIA graphics cards are capable of accelerating games and applications that support PhysX. This gives them an important leverage over their competitor, ATI, who has made a remarkable comeback on the back of their Radeon HD 4000 series of graphics cards. As popular as the current ATI graphics cards, they cannot accelerate games and applications that support PhysX.
