PhysX also runs on ATI Radeon HD cards!

Posted on Thursday, June 26 2008 @ 13:20:02 CEST by

NGOHQ managed to create modified drivers that add PhysX support to the ATI Radeon HD 3850! We already knew NVIDIA was willing to give ATI cards PhysX support but I didn't think it would be this easy.

NGOHQ says they'll soon release the driver so you can try it out yourself.

To be honest I was hoping ATI would do this, and maybe even support both physics models later down the line, but at least support the PhysX right off.

Hate to put the clue out there but it's the same reason Nvidia should allow SLI on other chipsets. Competition should be about features and quality, but certain abilities should be taken by the whole industry to bring interopability and broad support to all the vendors.

Imagine if USB 2.0 were only supported by AMD chipsets? And Intel had another design, etc. Certain core support (where it's possible) should be taken across the board by all.

And truly, I mean that both Havok and PhysX should get driver support to run on GPU's. Nvidia can just make their support go faster in future chips through design, which still enhances their product and pushes the industry forward.
