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."

You guys are aware that PhysX has a software based version that runs on consoles and PCs without acceleration, right? (Just like Havok)
Yes, and we're also aware that CPU-based PhysX runs like shit. Apparently you are not aware of that. If you have ever tried to run the PhysX pack for UT3, Warmonger, or Cellfactor on a PC with an AMD/ATI video card you would see that.

Everyone seems to have their panties in a wad about accelerated PhysX, which NVidia does on its video cards on PCs. Oh no, an added benefit that NVidia card owners get, boo hoo.
The reason why people are pissed about this is because there is no technical reason why PhysX can't run on an AMD/ATI graphics card. None! Nvidia is simply creating an artificial monopoly on GPU-accelerated PhysX by refusing to port it to an open standard like OpenCL. The fact that Nvidia won't even allow its video cards to be used for PhysX in a PC which has an AMD/ATI video card demonstrates its real monopolistic intentions.
