Why are ATI working away to get it to work on GPU with Havok FX?
Also correct me if i'm wrong here but isn't it the other way around and devs pay Nvidia for a physx license to use it in developing there games and not Nvidia paying them to use it?
Never posted the physx thing to say it was a amazing tool, the point was that it exists and unless you have it you wont get these details in games useing physx.
OOps@ the double post i missed the edit button it seems.
So why isn't the CPU used to do it? I'm curious?
Also why always such vicious rivalry
Both cpu and gpu are used with Physx AFAIK.
Havok only uses CPU though.
Vicious rivalry is not the intention.
Would hate to think i was a fanboy of either side.
man sniipe...still bashing away on this huh?
might as well hang it up on this fellas...cant argue with sniipe...he will argue even when there is nothing left to argue about lol...he can mod like a mofo though...
Because now Nvidia has an advantage over ATI. People buy Nvidia over ATI because only the former does PhysX.
Because then Nvidia won't have an advantage anymore.
That all makes sense
I know won't happen, but I would love for some unknown company to come in and just steel the crown!
Hell yeah. I wish OpenCL would do it. It's open (as the name implies) so everybody can implement it without worrying about any licensing costs or limitations.
I can just image that there is some stupidly clever kid sitting at home making his first circuit board at age 6 right now... and one day we will become the head of ... wait stark enterprises.. damn it shouldn't have watched Iron man >.<
But yeah I don't think there is anyone who could branch into graphics cards now, except intel maybe? But why would they?
I can't believe someone thought 4890 crossfire was quicker than gtx285 SLI. I've seen the benchmark results and I get atleast 10fps more across all games.
read the graphs man, 4890 CF is as fast if not faster @ max OC
got proof? then post it, dont just run your mouth without any real numbers
that one graph showing relative performance is hardly enough to prove it. For all anyone knows its biased. This whole thread has turned into a type of rant which is ridiculous ( whats a 285 got to do with it?Its gone off at a tangent from what the original poster was asking. However, unless anyone can get graphs directly comparing it from a reputable source, then i'll stick with my original conclusion that gtx 285 ssc's in sli are faster.
yeah, it's not that the graphs show that an oc'ed cf 4890 setup is faster. it's that we should be able to conclude that it is ... lol ...but anyway, someone should close this thread...it's retarded at this point...
he already bought...and he couldn't go wrong to be honest...
in the end, some games play faster on a 4890 cf setup, others play better on the 275 sli setup...i play l4d for example, and gtx 275 beats the 4890, solo or dual...same thing with other games, which is why, paired with cuda and physx (and folding) i recommended the 275's, but the whole flaming war started and facts get lost...he got 4890's and maybe those perform the best in the games he plays and the other things aren't important to him.
To drag it off on even more of a tangent... Man that site has some nice asses on it!
I wonder if they would look better over an ATi or nVidia card?
Given the prices i wouldn't put a 4890 against a 285.
If you were to go down that road then a 4870x2 is about the same price as a 285 so if spending that amount of cash you are looking at either 285 sli or 4870x2 xfire.
+1 for checkin it out lol...that site rocks don't it?
but 285x3 sli is the best gaming set up, it is better than two 295 in sli believe it or not
Not too hard to believe due to bad scaling... X4 anything is overkill so only like... what 0.2% of PC enthusiasts have 4 GPUs (excluding folders) in their rigs... not enough to warrant NVIDIA/ATI/Games manufacturers to do something big with it, programming is hard work...
i thought, and i must be wrong, but i thought 2x 4870x2's did real well?
hey I just found this picture of jared checking out strahan's (aka sniipe dog's) epenis
