Posted on 2006-06-22 12:06:44 by LSDsmurf

On March 8, 2005, an unknown company, called Ageia, announced a new device type to be launched on the market: Physics Processing Unit, PPU. Ageia intends to introduce PPU to the CPU-GPU couple and free resources of these two processors from computing physics. As PhysX PPU was announced at the traditional annual GDC 2005, no one had any doubts concerning the usage of the new coprocessors. A year after the announcement, on May 9, 2006, the first PhysX cards started to appear in stores. Today we are going to examine a production-line card PhysX P1 from ASUS. But at first let's review the "physical" theory — as it's understood by Ageia.
