EA and 2K Games Join NVIDIA Camp
NVIDIA is making a strong stand with its latest move.
Nope, it isn’t basedÂ on more frames per second.Â This time NVIDIA are concentrating on getting friends in high places.
EA and 2K Games (creators of Bioshock) have both agreed to use NVIDIAâ€™s PhysX technology to drive their physics engines in upcoming games.
I know what you’re thinking:Â “So, what?Â A couple of big hitters have licensed somebody orÂ others tech. How does that touch me?”
Well, if you’re loving your PC gaming then it might make sense to get some GeForce under the hood if you haven’t already!
Take into account that there’s been some pretty spanky performance incresasesÂ and the fact thatÂ AMD needed a bit of a tax break recently it would be smart to go the GeForce way.
We all like leaves moving when we brush past them in gaming worlds such as Crysis and physics simulation is becomingÂ a must have feature in games so developersÂ are going to beÂ relying more on hybrid technology like PhysX in order to make sure that their games are runningÂ nice and smooooooth.
I think it’s safe to say that both ‘Bioshock 2’ and the ‘Crysis’ follow-upÂ are going to run best on a GeForce-based system.
So. You know what you need 😉
