im not impressed atm :(

as it was discussed in the articles however, it will only take one killer title and a nice performance boost to make ppl realize the power of these things. now we play the waiting game, heh.

Our working theory is that when the explosion starts, the debris that goes flying everywhere needs to be created on the fly. This can either be done on the CPU, on the PhysX card, or in both places depending on exactly how the situation is handled by the software. It seems most likely that the slowdown is the cost of instancing all these objects on the PhysX card and then moving them back and forth over the PCI bus and eventually to the GPU. It would certainly be interesting to see if a faster connection for the PhysX card - like PCIe X1 - could smooth things out, but that will have to wait for a future generation of the hardware most likely.


You wonder why AGEIA didnt see this coming. PCI-e X1 version hopefully is going to help. I'm gonna need the PCI-e version with my A8N32 anyway. :D

I'm not impressed either. I'll definately wait on this piece of hardware. Just a fancy accessory anyways.
