Viewer Discretion Is Advised


Game immersion

Game Immersion

The future of physics processing hardware


Current physics calculation

Current Physics Calculation

  • Physics calculated by system CPU

    • Lacking in floating point capabilities and memory bandwidth

    • Can handle about 1000 rigid bodies (Dual-core CPUs)


Physics processing unit

Physics Processing Unit

  • Dedicated card for physics processing

    • 128MB of GDDR3 (High bandwidth graphics memory)

    • Works in tandem with CPU (AI calculations) and GPU (Graphics calculations)


Ppu cons

PPU - Cons

  • Price

    • Add-on card

    • Very high end systems

  • Limited support

    • Games must use Ageia’s PhysX software


Ppu pros

PPU - Pros

  • Specially designed for physics calculation

    • Massive floating point capabilities and memory bandwidth

    • Can handle 32,000 rigid bodies

  • Gaining support

    • Sony Playstation 3

    • BioWare Eclipse Engine™

    • Big game franchises

    • Cell Factor physics video
