NVIDIA Provides Physics Technology For PLAYSTATION3

NVIDIA Corporation today announced that it has signed a tools and middleware license agreement for PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) with Sony Computer Entertainment Inc (SCEI). As a result, the binary version of the NVIDIA® PhysX® technology software development kit (SDK) is now available to registered PS3 developers for free download and use on the SCEI Developer Network.

The NVIDIA PhysX technology software development kit SDK consists of a full-featured API and robust physics engine, designed to give developers, animators, level designers, and artists unprecedented creative control over character and object physical interactions by allowing them to author and preview physics effects in real time. The continued adoption of NVIDIA PhysX technology by the world’s leading content developers is resulting in games that not only look as realistic as possible, but also provides gaming experiences where the world’s literally come to life: environments become highly interactive with effects such as persistent debris, including shattered glass and weapons ammunition, trees that bend in the wind, and water that flows with body and force.

“NVIDIA is proud to support PLAYSTATION 3 as an approved middleware provider,” said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of content and technology at NVIDIA. “Games developed for the PLAYSTATION 3 using PhysX technology offer a more realistic and lifelike interaction between the games characters and other objects within the game. We look forward to the new games that will redefine reality for a new generation of gamers.”

The PhysX technology source code SDK for PS3 and all major gaming platforms are available for license directly from NVIDIA. For more information on licensing PhysX SDKs or NVIDIA PhysX technology, please visit: www.nvidia.com/physx.

As in install drivers for the ATI card and the install drivers for the onboard card? It should be fine. Althought I have never tested running two different make GPUs at the same time.

In theory it should work.

But if you mean you uninstall the ATI ones and move back to Nvidia then yes this will be fine. :)

Lets say you grab an ATI chip.

I recommend you uninstall and disable the Nvidia onboard card. Then install the ATI card and drivers. :)

How would i disable the onboard graphics? Im currently running an nvidia 7300le graphics card at the moment so should it be as easy as uninstalling forceware and the motherboard nvidia chipset driver and installing ati catalyst?
