More PhysX Coverage (3 Comments) (link)
 Wednesday, 10-May-2006  20:13:52 (GMT +10) - by Agg

A few more sites have released their AGEIA PhysX coverage, using the BFG retail card.
  • Bit-Tech say It's all very positive for the future but it is hard to recommend that anyone rush out to buy a PhysX card today.
  • HotHardware reckon every aspect of this product seems a bit premature as there are no real titles which can utilize the hardware today beyond a few subtle changes here and there in a handful of games.
  • PCPerspective are more positive, saying AGEIA seems to have set higher goals and intends to reach them in 2006. If they achieve that goal, then a BFG AGEIA PhysX card might find a comfortable place in your system.
  • Tweaktown note The other thing is the PhysX in GRAW feels as itís been kind of taped on and not written from the ground up. When we get a chance to look at the card again we will try Cell Factor which is designed around the AGEIA technology to see just how it performs.
  • HardOCP sum up nicely: PhysX will live to be judged again another day as we hopefully see games that truly take advantage of the promises that Ageia makes about their hardware. Until then, save your PhysX pennies because the cards are not going to be getting any more expensive, unless of course they go the way of the Dodo.
