FUD Zilla writes NVIDIA and game developers will start pushing PhysX real hard next year, and predicts this will be a problem for ATI:
EA is making Mirror's Edge for quite some time and we were told that this new game that will really push PhysX will come in 2009, probably in January time, and this might give PhysX a big boost.
In the long run, ATI is in trouble as it doesn’t supports PhysX and this is simply the way where Nvidia will push the 3D gaming market. Games with PhysX do look better but they have still to appear. We expect more of these games in Q1 2009 and probably PhysX will matter big time by Xmas 2009.
As of Q1 2009, ATI will have to cope with the fact that PhysX enabled games will run many times faster on Nvidia hardware and ATI will have to find a remedy for it. The only remedy we can think of is signing up for CUDA and embracing competitors' PhysX that will likely run a bit slower on ATI Radeon cards.

Re: AMD to suffer from lack of PhysX by Anonymous on Thursday, December 18 2008 @ 05:18:20 CET
I bet they will, lack of PhysX was one of the reasons I didn't upgrade to Radeon HD 4870.
