NVIDIA: Even ATI will get Physics for free

Posted on Thursday, June 05 2008 @ 17:41:55 CEST by

NVIDIA Vice President Roy Tayler told FUD Zilla that NVIDIA will make the AGEIA PhysX technology available for free to anyone with a GeForce 8 series card or newer. Tayler also said NVIDIA will ever share the technology with AMD, if they want to support it.
If ATI wants to embrace Physics they can do it and we believe that this can and is highly likely to happen. We’ve heard that Physics software is supposed to launch soon, but we didn’t get the fixed date.

We believe that when Nvidia says "free" that this means that even Intel can do it, but Intel caused itself havoc and we will probably witness a big fight between Nvidia and Intel as to who gets the Physics piece of the market.
As more and more users get physics support we'll see more games that support the technology. NVIDIA told FUD Zilla there will be 16 games by Christmas that support PhysX and around 40 by summer of 2009.
These sixteen includes Bionic Commando from Capcom and Shadow Harvest from Black Lion studios, at least Nvidia could talk about these two. Just remember that all Unreal Engine 3 games support Physics and since Physics will run on Geforce 8 series cards on that CUDA thing, you should finally see some really nice physics on your PC.
