According to Your statement then it Would Not matter to You if I came to Your house and took Everything that You bought and Paid for and keep what I want and give the rest to the world so that Your stuff (which You No Longer Own.. even though You bought it) is in as many homes as Possible.
As for the second bolded section... Are You serious? Yeah they bought PhysX so they should just let it go ( even though obviously they must make money from it or why would it still exist) and give to the GEEKs of the GPU World ??
Here's an Idea How about ALL OF YOU geeks out there GET OFF YOUR **** and Help HavoK if this Whole PhysX thing bothers You So bad? After all You all know whats best and have such Awesome skills... it Should be a cake walk for You all huh?
Lol, sorry but you don't need to capitalise every other word and secondly you need to read more carefully.I didn't say they should give their technology away
to anyone. I said they should let supporting AMD + Physx be down to the community (who already do this in hacked drivers anyway). As it stands they actively block Physx form working even if an Nvidia card is the second card, ready and waiting to be used as a Physx card. Instead, they could NOT do that and let support for that fall on the already strong community for that.
And your logic is flawed entirely. If Physx is more prevalent in people's systems, then developers would use it more and if developers use it more, Physx becomes more prevalent! The more developers use Physx the more Nvidia cards get sold. Simple as that.
You need to understand that the ONLY reason Nvidia don't support AMD card + Physx card is they don't want to support it. That means they don't want to have to answer questions and technical issues regarding that configuration. They'd rather spend tech support money on supporting Nvidia cards. Which is perfectly understandable. So, why not let the community do that?
As for doing something about it? Why? I have an Nvidia card and I want to see Physx in more games since I like it and what it has to offer. The ONLY way of getting that to happen is if more than 50% of the systems out there can run it... Which means letting AMD systems run Nvidia Physx cards.
Anyway, people who don't understand the issue aside or think this is giving away technology... LOL, you guys aside. It makes more sense to have Physx capable systems out there. All Nvidia have to do is stop blocking those configurations and refuse to support them officially. The community that already works on hacking these drivers has less work to do and in the end it means more people running Physx cards, less trolling every time a new Physx game comes out and hopefully, more Physx games.Edited by Rubers - 8/18/12 at 7:55am
