Nvidia PhysX runs on AMD Radeon 3870, scores 22,000 CPU marks in Vantage Valy-TGV Jun 27th, 08, 12:12 AM #1

Nvidia PhysX runs on AMD Radeon 3870, scores 22,000 CPU marks in Vantage

Haifa (Israel) – This one did not take long: We already knew that Nvidia is working on a CUDA version for x86 CPUs, but said it would leave a modification for ATI GPUs to others. Eran Badit of NGOHQ.com told us that he has done it already and was able to get the Nvidia PhysX layer to run on ATI Radeon cards.

After playing with Nvidia's CUDA SDK and PhysX SDK, Eran apparently got the PhysX layer to play along with Radeon cards. He mentioned that enabling PhysX support on Radeon cards is not particularly difficult, leading us to believe that physics on graphics cards may not so much be a technology problem but a game of politics.

Eran said that he will be offering the ATI PhysX-enabling utility on NGOHQ.com as soon as he gets his hands on more hardware to check the application on more than one graphics card. We are told that he is testing hardware already, which means that the software should be available “soon”.

On his first run, Eran got a 22,606 CPU score in 3D Mark Vantage, enhancing the overall score to P4262. A comparable system without PhysX-support will cross the finish line at about P3800.

We are told that there is currently no relationship between NGOHQ.com and AMD’s PR team, which means that Eran does not have access to Radeon 4850 or 4870 cards. Check the www.ngohq.com website for the software to become available this weekend.

Actually it's a 3850.

As hopeful as I am there's something wrong with that CPU1 test # -.-
A 4ghz Wolfdale with GX280 gets 1089 and you want me to believe that this 3850 with a no-name cpu gets 1580? >.>

oops nevermind got it backwards, physx affect cpu-2. A quick look around the net says physx enabled Vantage cpu 2 score is 100+ (3850 got ~70, though I think score from cpu 1 indicate they are using c2q

I still have reservation on the scores until I can actually use those modded drivers myself

yes. the physx offloads the physics from the CPU so you get a much higher CPU score

One can expect legal battle:
PhysX is owned by Nvidia and it isn't open source or anything like that. Nvidia has stated that AMD can use PhysX IF they use CUDA which they don't..

nVidia wouldn't be up against AMD here as it is some one independent of the company doing the porting.

True, but i dont think AMD going to have any legal battle because NGOHQ has no relationship with them according to TGdaily. Probably NGOHQ will be the only one involved in the legel battle if NVIDIA is not happy with what they done and releases the download to all ATi users.

Well if Physx is as easy to mod as the guy claims then it's going to spread like wildfire regardless of what nVidia do. Honestly I couldn't care less even if it's true, cause with current gen gpu you'd likely be getting 10-20 fps with physx enabled in games.
