Nvidia PhysX for different games
  

Hi,
What does Physx really do on a Graphic card. I have purchased a 1GB GeForce Graphic card for my Windows PC. It was mentioned that it is equipped with Physx to render high end graphics. Does this is an additional support for the cards. What is the main function of this new support on Graphic cards. How to use them while playing games.

NVIDIA PhysX technology is the platform for developing the most widely used to accelerate physics in interactive entertainment. It is a really nice supports with works on a massively parallel architecture of the GeForce GPU. This new technology has an ability to handle ten to twenty times more visual complexity than the traditional platforms and can operate the best CPU and GPU architecture with GeForce GPUs to provide the best environment to the user.

PhysX usually supports hardware scaling. With the help of GeForce GPUs you can increase the performance and on the same way enhance the environments of platforms multi-GPU gaming. The technology works with all types of major platforms game like Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and can be accelerated by both the CPU and any CUDA parallel processor like the GPU NVIDIA GeForce.

Re: Nvidia PhysX for different games

Physx is a new solution from nvidia which offers you an extreme quality on the current gameplay. It tends to improve the physical appearance of the game which makes the game more original in working. Currently most of the action packed games works on this technology. You can see the same on different games. Like for COD4 when you shoot the appearance looks more real.

It is just an additional graphic rendering from Nvidia which works on your system by default. The main motive of providing this technology is making the game more real in look. Like the body of character, the movement, trees, glass breaking, etc. It is an addon pack for the current graphic game which makes them unique while playing. Multiple games support this.

Re: Nvidia PhysX for different games

Not all the graphic cards of Nvidia support Physx. Only the GeForece 8 Series and later can support this. That also needed a minimum of 32 cores with 256 MB of dedicated memory. The same technology is adopted by more than 150 games and it is well optimized for hardware acceleration specially for the parallel processors. The only thing which works here is improving the physical appearance of game.
