What are the upcoming games? I looked around but didn't really find much useful up to date info. I thought that I read somewhere that Crysis 2 will use it, but don't know how accurate that is.

Yeah I figured that Crysis would use it's own physics, but hoped otherwise.

I want it to be more games! Gpu physx is better then Cpu physx by miles but not enough games take advantage of it! If more games took advantage of it, more people would purchase Nvidia cards! They would own the video card industry, they might already though since most games advertise works best with Nvidia!

Even though Batman and Mirror's Edge were pretty awesome with all the paper flying around, I would like to see a move to open formats that would work on ATI cards too. I can only guess that's what they're doing.

Agreed. PhysX is nothing but a novelty at this moment.

Mark is right, Nvidia is keeping their lips sealed when it comes to PhysX. I share your enthusiasm for PhysX OP. I've been playing Mafia 2 and it is a great visual experience.

Nice blog Mark. Keep it up

Gaming is a novelty. I've played a few games with PhysX enabled already, and I would much rather have had PhysX in them than not. PhysX is relatively new, and the number of games supporting it that come out each year is only going to increase.

I don't. I just want to see Nvidia allow Physx dedicated cards to run alongside ATI cards.

Open standards can be good. They can also be crap and unsupported. Getting ATI and Nvidia to co-operate on a Physics engine would be near impossible. Nvidia currently own the best on the market. So I'd like to see it developed better and see performance increases on existing hardware, because I saw somewhere recommend a 260GTX for Physx and that's just stupid. An 8800GT should do it.

as someone with a physx card in his rig let me just say it is total crap and not worth it at all. only reason i have the second card is for folding. no way i would ever spend 100 more just to have paper fly around or cloth move better.

^ It shouldn't need anything more than an 8800GT.

The 8800GT can play the latest blockbuster titles, yet can't seem to power Physx? Yeah, right.

The 8800GT can play what now?

Obvious troll is obvious.

Er, in the computer upstairs there is an 8800GT that more than happily plays Bad Company 2, Modern Warfare 2, Oblivion, Just Cause 2 on high settings.



Go troll somewhere else. I'm saying that Physx shouldn't need a £200 card to work properly. An 8800GT should do it.
