Default nVidia to Support CUDA and PhysX in ATI Radeon

Eran Badit editor-in-chief of ngohq.com posted an update to the events of last week. He confirmed that he is receiving support from Nvidia to get PhysX to run on ATI cards. "It’s very impressive, inspiring and motivating to see Nvidia’s view on this," he wrote. He believes that Nvidia most likely wants to "take on Intel with CUDA and to deal with the latest Havok threat from both AMD and Intel."

Perhaps they don't want the Red Team to support the Blue Men Group.

AMD has nothing to lose and everything to benefit in this war. Sure they may help NVidia become king of the ring overall but it also gives themselves much more insight into how Nvidia plans to achieve the title.

Gonna be a very interesting time ahead.

But if it is and physx wins, ATI doesn't loose.

I hope this comes together. If both fronts are using CUDA/PhysX a lot more games should take advantage of PhysX.
