It will be for all 7xxx gpus. What is in the ps4 is GCN, which is what is in all 7xxx cards, so therefore it will be on desktops.

It would be great if someone from AMD will confirm this.

I don't see anywhere in the linked article where it states that this will be GPU accelerated.

In fact, it specifically states:
Quote:
"NVIDIA PhysX and APEX technologies are designed to run on a variety of CPU architectures and can be accelerated by any CUDA® architecture-enabled NVIDIA GPU, GeForce 8-series or higher."
Seems to me it will be the same as we already have now on AMD GPU equipped desktops, where Physx will run on CPU.

Just because the PS4 with AMD gets physx support, does not mean the desktop cards will get support. As similiar is the hardware, desktop variants will probably be artificially locked out. Who knows, anything could happen.

This, its just the same thing you get on AMD GPU Desktops, just really crap heavily watered down Physx that would work so much better if it wasn't from nvidia.
