NVIDIA Responds to ATI PhysX Comments

PC Games Hardware has a response from NVIDIA to a recent statement by ATI that developers other than Epic use PhysX for physics "because they’re paid to do it." NVIDIA's Nadeem Mohammed, Director of Product Management, PhysX, who says: "we do not pay developers to select PhysX instead of other physics solution." He also states that PhysX is not proprietary, even though it obviously is, saying: "PhysX is a complete Physics solution which runs on all major platforms like PS3, XBOX360, Wii, PC with Intel or AMD CPU, and on the PC with GeForce cards; it even runs on iPhone. It's available for use by any developer for inclusion in games for any platform - all free of license fees. There's nothing restrictive or proprietary about that."

Nvidia is a better card anyway
lol!?.

I've used Geforce 1 to 8 and some ATI's then i went ATI completely because someone has to prevent monopolys for the general good. Have a 5850 now and miss my 5770 because it's the BEST damn card ever made, i dont mean performance wise which is good enough to run most games on highest actually but im talking size/heat/energy consumption/noise/sexy.

So while extolling the virtues of ATI over Nvidia, you're basically telling us that you only went to ATI to break up "monopolies" and that the ATI 5850 is worse than it's predecessor.

Thanks for that great sales pitch, LOL

I'll stick witn Nvidia.
