BFG Ageia PhysX 128MB PCI Product Details
The Future of PC Gaming is Here!
Take your gaming rig into the future of PC gaming with BFG Tech physics accelerator cards powered by the AGEIA� PhysX� processor. Experience a new dimension in gaming physics performance. Things don�t just look real; they act real and feel real. Massively destructible buildings and landscapes; explosions that cause collateral damage; lifelike characters with spectacular new weapons; realistic smoke, fog and oozing fluids are all now possible with the AGEIA� PhysX� processor!
What is AGEIA PhysX?
Delivering advanced physics is an extremely compute-intensive undertaking, based on a unique set of physics algorithms, requiring tremendous amounts of mathematical and logical calculations with massive memory bandwidth. Simply put, it requires a highly specialized processor to deliver rich immersive environments with features such as:
- Explosions that cause dust and collateral debris
- Characters with complex, jointed geometries for more life-like motion and
- Spectacular new weapons with unpredictable effects
- Lush foliage that sways naturally when brushed against
- Dense smoke & fog that billow around objects in motion
Note: Requires compatible game titles. Please verify that your game is supported by the PhysX technology.
|Tired of shooting at walls and nothing happening? Now watch the individual bricks go flying; better yet, blow up that roof and let your enemy perish as it collapses on top of him.|
|Fully interactive, flow-dynamics fluid weapons let you take out enemies around corners and behind barricades�while smoke and dust from explosions make it hard to see if anyone�s still alive out there.|
|Everything�s real; everything�s interactive�everything�s a potential shield or a potential weapon � for you or the enemy. Throw everything at them� including the kitchen sink.|
Together with a PC�s CPU and GPU, the AGEIA PhysX Processing Unit (PPU) makes up the new Gaming Power Triangle, in which the CPU �thinks and orchestrates� to drive playability, AI and overall game-logic, the general purpose GPU �renders and displays� to deliver beautiful 3D imagery, and the new AGEIA PhysX Processor, �moves and interacts� to take gaming to the next level.
