NVIDIA's PhysX: Performance and Status Report

Recommended Posts

mobilenvidia
PhysX is getting a lot of attention right now, but the reasons vary wildly. Since we haven't taken a look at the technology in a while, this article's goal is to see where things stand. We'll also be taking an in-depth look at GPU PhysX performance, using both 3DMark Vantage and UT III.

Techgage has written a few words on this subject which can be found here

As of today, guru3D.com has a big review of the so-called "nvidia PhysX Pack" that will hit the streets on August 12th, coming tuesday.

"nVIDIA PhysX Pack #1

* Full version of Warmonger

* Full version of UT III PhysX Mod Pack (Includes three PhysX-specific levels)

* Latest Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 patch (1.05)

* First peek at Nurien, an upcoming social networking service, based on UE III

* First peek at Metal Knight Zero, an upcoming PhysX-capable title

* "The Great Kulu" technology demo

* "Fluid" technology demo

Obviously at that date the release of GeForce Forceware 177.79 drivers and the new PhysX drivers 8.07.18 is pending as well."

So there you have it: the Forceware 177.79 together with the newest PhysX driver will be officially released on August 12th 2008. This combo (with a modded .inf) is working great on my XPS M1530 (8600GT) and I'm really looking forward to the demo stuff in the PhysX pack.

The most informative review so far was released already 2 days ago over at the professionals from Computerbase.de ( http://www.computerbase.de/artikel/hardwar...hysx_ueberblick ). It's in german though :) It covers everything about CUDA, PhysX and GPGPU with the right amount of technical details.
