Physics calculation in games is a big challenge. In an extremely computationally intensive environment huge masses of mathematical and logical calculations are done in dependents to highly specialized physics algorithms.
One way to realize that is Nvidia's Physx, the software of which has now been updated. The download is available for the 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows XP, windows Vista and Windows 7. The package is also WHQL certificated. Besides the Ageia Physx cards (depending on the application) the new software also supports Nvidia Geforce cards of the Geforce 200, Geforce 9 and Geforec 8 series.
You can download the software either from Nvidia's website
or if you are a logged in PCGH user, at the end of the article. Update: December 8, 2009
A new version of the Physx System Software with the serial number 9.09.1112, which is said to be part of the next official Geforce driver package, has been made available.
