Simply put, it requires a highly specialized processor to deliver rich immersive environments. Works great but only for older Physx games not supported by Geforce critics. Another problem was the fact that the extra particles and polygons created due to the physics implementations had a real impact on the performance, as the GPU suddenly needs to render a large number of new particles and effects not present without a dedicated PhysX card.

As a result, physics in games has been limited to a few objects in a scene, one-off “effects” or visual trickery that just mimics real physics. Show less Show more.

Show less Show more. System memory and processor xgeia were the two deciding factors for such old 2D games, which were made to look 3D thus the term 2. Physics is all about how objects in your game move and react.


These are games which had the time to mature and use the Ageia PhysX architecture to a much greater extent than previous titles. PCs with the cards already installed were available from system builders such as AlienwareDelland Falcon Northwest. NVidia CUDA provides a little more in the way of inter-thread communication and scratchpad-style workspace associated with the threads. Trending Price New.

Delivering advanced physics is an extremely compute-intensive undertaking, based on a unique set of physics algorithms, requiring tremendous amounts of mathematical and logical calculations with massive memory bandwidth.

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 AGEIA PhysX processor!

Introduction I would like to thank Ageia for providing the review sample About Ageia The company can easily be described by one pharagraph found on their China website: This page was last edited on 29 Decemberat A physics processing unit PPU is a dedicated microprocessor designed to handle the calculations of physicsespecially in the physics engine of video games.

All you got were benefits, but no real draw backs.


The lowest-priced item in unused and unworn condition with absolutely no signs of wear. Single-core Multi-core Manycore Heterogeneous architecture.

Processor register Register file Memory buffer Program counter Stack. The benefits of such a specialized card were obvious when playing the first real 3D games and thus the adoption of such hardware went along fast and without question. In recent years with multi core CPUs the question arises if a second, third or fourth core could not be used to calculate real life interactivity pgysics games to make them more realistic.

Trending Price New. It is an example of hardware acceleration. The audience was intrigued by the new technology, but was dissapointed by the actual benefit of it. This future configuration started materializing in the form of Heterogeneous System Architecture. It’s not just how things look, but how they behave. The item may be a factory second or a new, unused item with defects or irregularities.
