For now, the company is using high-end GDDR-3 memory, although neither Hegde nor Davis would comment on either the core clock speed or the speed of the memory interface. Latest News Latest Videos.

Getting past the business side of things, we have learned a bit more about the Phyiscs hardware and software than we have written in previous articles. Because of the complex interactions between the graphics chip and the PhysX physics engine, Ageia executves said they expect that sales of PhysX chips and high-end graphics cards will go hand in hand.

A physics processing unit PPU is a dedicated microprocessor designed to handle the calculations of physicsespecially in the physics engine of video games. Google Ageia for more info Verified purchase: Autodesk reveals aaccelerator features in Maya “.

In many of today’s games, objects just don’t seem to act the way you’d want or expect them to in real life. GeForce 8 9 Tricky agria set up, but works good and didn’t cost much. As a result, modern computers run these games faster and better than the consoles even with little or no optimization.


Google Ageia for more info. Ageia already has samples of the first PhysX chips, which will be released in different price-performance configurations, similar to that of a graphics card; a high-end graphics card and a high-end PhysX card will be priced about the same.

UPDATE: Startup Develops “Physics Accelerator” Chip

The highly tuned multi-core processor accelerates real-time physical motion and interaction. Archived from the original on Imagine that you have a wall of a castle raining down accelwrator your filthy, peasant head in a 3D, physics enhanced Trogdor game. Retrieved March 18, Arkham Asylum worth the wait”.

Beginning with version 2. Both Aegia and Hegde were reluctant to disclose too many details of the technology out of fear that Silicon Valley venture capitalists would begin funding competitors. Also VU0 is capable of providing additional vertex processing power, though this is more a property of the pathways in the system rather than the unit itself.
