[H] Radeon PhysX GPU Acceleration?

We don’t have much information on this aside from the screenshot below but, from the looks of this 3DMark Vantage screenshot, the Radeon HD 3850 is capable of PhysX GPU acceleration. Again, we don’t have any info on this other than what you see here but we thought we’d share anyway. Thanks to EBadit for the screenshot.

Looks like some sort of PS troll jobbie.. If they implemented this in a new driver version, wouldn't 'GeForce PhysX' be a greyed out option there too?

Hmmm...

There's the NGO driver logo on those Physx properties. Maybe a modded driver?

Haifa (Israel) – This one did not take long: We already knew that Nvidia is working on a CUDA version for x86 CPUs, but said it would leave a modification for ATI GPUs to others. Eran Badit of NGOHQ.com told us that he has done it already and was able to get the Nvidia PhysX layer to run on ATI Radeon cards.

After playing with Nvidia's CUDA SDK and PhysX SDK, Eran apparently got the PhysX layer to play along with Radeon cards. He mentioned that enabling PhysX support on Radeon cards is not particularly difficult, leading us to believe that physics on graphics cards may not so much be a technology problem but a game of politics.

Eran said that he will be offering the ATI PhysX-enabling utility on NGOHQ.com as soon as he gets his hands on more hardware to check the application on more than one graphics card. We are told that he is testing hardware already, which means that the software should be available “soonâ€.

On his first run, Eran got a 22,606 CPU score in 3D Mark Vantage, enhancing the overall score to P4262. A comparable system without PhysX-support will cross the finish line at about P3800.

We are told that there is currently no relationship between NGOHQ.com and AMD’s PR team, which means that Eran does not have access to Radeon 4850 or 4870 cards. Check the www.ngohq.com website for the software to become available this weekend.

It's real, apparently. Those clever Israelis. Mobile phones, laser artillery, UAVs, satellites, Core 2 Duo and now this.

Okay, if this guy did this work in about 10 minutes why don't we have a new Radeon driver with Physx support yet?

This is much deeper than I thought...

If i go out and buy an Ageia PhysX card, will it continue to run new PhysX games optimized for PhysX on GPU?

Or is it useless?
