Update on the article:

Quote:
Update (28/05): A fresh report by Anandtech says that the ability to use GeForce for PhysX in systems with graphics led by Radeon GPUs with the 257.15 beta driver is just a bug and not a feature. It means that this ability is one-off for this particular version of the driver, and future drivers may not feature it.
Doh!!!

Relax, is a bug, not a feature.

Yes, this is a bug in the latest build of PhysX that was packaged with the driver. We'll be fixing this issue ASAP - the WHQL driver launching in early June won't have this issue. -NVIDIA
Stupid nVidia.

Oh well, got excited for nothing.

EDIT : I still can't understand why Nvidia is doing this, I mean don't they want more people buy their video cards.
