AMD: PhysX will be irrelevant

Posted on Saturday, October 03 2009 @ 01:25:02 CEST by

AMD said they do not consider the lack of PhysX on ATI Radeon graphics card a problem, the company believes the PhysX technology will simply become irrelevant in the future:
Advanced Micro Devices, the world’s second largest developer of x86 central processing units (CPUs) and a leading designer of graphics processing units, said that it hardly regrets about Nvidia Corp.’s decision to disable support of hardware physics effects processing using PhysX API and GeForce GPU or Ageia PhysX PPU in systems where ATI Radeon graphics card is used for graphics rendering. In fact, AMD believes that with the raise of popularity of DirectCompute and OpenCL APIs, proprietary PhysX will soon vanish into oblivion.
