The New "X" Factor: An Introduction to NVIDIA PhysX

- NVIDIA completed the acquisition of AGEIA in February 13, 2008.
- PhysX API has been ported onto NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit.
- PhysX can be run on PC (CPUs, NVIDIA CUDA-enabled GPUs and PPUs (PhysX Accelerator, Physics Processing Unit), PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and iPhone.
- SLI PhysX has two modes: conventional (physics/graphics workload shared) & multi-GPU (workloads separated).
- GeForce driver v180.48 enabled support for asymmetric multi-GPU configurations (example: GTX 280 does graphics, 8800GT does physics)
- Download latest GeForce WHQL driver version for desktops and notebooks here.
- Download latest GeForce Beta driver version for desktops and notebooks here.
- Download latest PhysX System Software version here.
