PCI-E Ageia PhysX board pixelated

Posted September 10, 2007 by admin in News

Ageia?s PhysX is the world?s first physics processing unit (PPU), which offloads software physics processing from central processing units and graphics processing units to it. The architecture of the PhysX PPU is tailored for multi-threaded processing of vertexes, which allows game creators to develop detailed, soft and precise animation and simulation of movements, hair, clothing, liquids, fluids and other. Currently Ageia?s PhysX is the world?s first and only dedicated physics processing unit, but the company expects more startups to offer similar technology.
