THQ & PhysX

THQ Selects NVIDIA PhysX Technology for Use in Its Worldwide Studios has word of another licensing win for NVIDIA and its PhysX game physics technology, saying simply that THQ "has selected NVIDIA PhysX technology for use by its studios worldwide." The rest of the press release recaps NVIDIA's view of what makes PhysX so great, along with a quote from THQ's Roy Tessler on that same topic: "The NVIDIA PhysX technology delivers astonishing physics effects and will help us develop the most competitive and innovative products in the marketplace. With support for both the CPU and the GPU, PhysX technology allows us the creative freedom to design compelling environments and deliver truly immersive gaming experiences."

People seem to forget that physx does run on CPU as well just like Havoc. Physx has been used on gaming platforms other than the PC without issues & they don't have 88XX series video cards or a PPU.

Ex: UT3 if you had a quad core cpu no physx hardware was required to enable the extras.
