Looks like a fun little program. But not $300 fun, since none of my games support the card. I don't think I'm gonna get one till i have to

It's running in software mode so the poor cpu is doing all the work of calculating the physics of all the pieces.

Need a video of it running in hardware mode for comparison now.

It certainly makes the physics a lot more realistic. Particle effects, destroyable objects and eventually even the terrain in games like sand and water will be totally deformable and affected by everything you do.

I wish more games would support this card, I'd like to get one.

I've never been a big fan of dual video cards, but with a dual PCI-E slot mobo plop a physics accelerator in one and a decent video card in the other and you're happening.


When in doubt, gas it!

Yeah, I was kinds disappointed about that too.

The PhysX card runs a bunch of APIs that do the physics, which need to be incorporated into the game or simulation to take advantage of the physics accelerator. I guess the program that was recorded was a demo of the APIs doing their thing, just not in a machine with the card in it.

But just by watching how all the little cubes behave, and imagining it happening in real time, you can see that it looks much more realistic than anything in any current game.

Heh, that gives me an idea; I'm gonna try and play the vid faster and see what it looks like.

Heh, just tried it. It didn't work to well, the darn cubes were too slow still on 2x, and then if you set it to 16x, it was way to fast :(.

What program is this, btw?

i know in the GRAW PC demo, it installs the AGIEA drivers even if you dont have the card, might be a demo in there or somthing

The program is called NovodeX, very cool. Just google it and you'll find a download link.
