+ - NVidia Cripples PhysX "Open API" 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "In a foot-meet-bullet type move, NVidia is going to disable PhysX engine if you are using a display adapter other than one that came from their company. This despite the fact that you may have an NVidia card on your system specifically to do this type of processing. "For a variety of reasons some development expense, some quality assurance and some business reasons Nvidia will not support GPU accelerated PhysX with Nvidia GPUs while GPU rendering is happening on non-Nvidia GPUs." Time to say hello to Microsoft dx physics or Intel's Havok engine."

  • with the submitters opening line. I've been holding off on a new workstation purchase specifically to skip geforce 7x00, 8x00, 9x00, and gts x00 models and jump to a Larrabee based GPGPU. Also skipped dual core, core2duo, and core2quad to save for a nice Nehalem based CPU. Things are starting to look really fucking interesting in the high-end workstation markets...
