Very unsure with the Extreme board as filling all the PCI slots slow it down. Log in Don’t have an account? JonasBeckman , Aug 6, If you don’t what you’ll end up doing is getting stuck with the newer one which does not seem to work at all in actual game environments, as it was made I guess for using secondary Nvidia cards only.

Exclusive: ASUS Debuts AGEIA PhysX Hardware
JonasBeckmanAug 6, This is a hard thing for us to test for explicitly, but it is easy to understand why it will be a problem when we have developers already complaining about the overhead issue.

It’s not that GPUs can’t be used to solve these problems where the input to one pixel is the output of another performing multiple passes and agela use of render-to-texture functionality is one obvious solution ; it’s just that much of the power of a GPU is mostly wasted when attempting to solve this type of problem.
Thought’s only would be appreciated as my PC is quick, just ive seen what dedication can do. Effective Asua Data Rate: These types of solutions will add a little more punch to what developers can do.

We would really like to get a better idea of how much actual “work” this part can handle, but for now we’ll have to settle for this ambiguous number and some real world performance.

The AGEIA triangle explanation is valid, not sure on this board though or if the technology has passed this, remember sli splits the screen to share load. Physics, as we noted in last years article, generally presents itself in sets of highly dependant small problems. Or wait and see how OpenCl pans out, it shouldn’t be too long now. Let’s take a look a the ASUS card and then take a look at the numbers.
No doubt you ageiw use an older NVidia card for dedicated PhysX and see some gains on some game titles – if you already have a spare – but it’s not worth buying one when you can instead drop in another GPU.

Do you already have an account? For now Not many titles at the moment is what I mean. The card works for me great on Mirrors Edge and Terminator Salvation, and Bionic Commando also I do believe also But I did not do the standard ashs test” to see if the fan fired up on that one, but instead just tested with the newest Physx drivers that don’t use the card versus the ones that do and found the game ran better with the older working agwia.

For instance, there is no way for a pixel shader to read a value, change it, and write it back to the same spot in local RAM. Yes, my password is: We are certainly seeing titles coming out like Oblivion which are able to bring everything we throw at it to a crawl, so balance will certainly be an issue for Havok FX and similar solutions.
Results 1 to 5 of 5. Ive found the actual list on the net for titles using the ageeia is rather incomplete, so you will just have to shop around and see what you find.
State changes will be more efficient, and many more objects will be able to be sent to the GPU for processing every frame. Ark ham city scarecrow nightmare is prime example of the difference.

With the possibility for games to support orders of magnitude more rigid body objects under PhysX, overhead can become an issue when batching these objects to the GPU for rendering.
