What is Havok Physics?

Ok, I had my new rig since 24th of Dec

CPU: i7-950
MOBO: GA-X58A-UD7
GPU: ATI 5850 Black Edition
COOLER: Corsair H50
Memory: 6GB XM3 Cas7
PSU: Corsair 850W
HDD: 500GB
CASE: CM Storm Sniper Black Edition
OS: Win 7 64-bit Ultimate

My question is, do I need to install this Havok Physics? or is that automatically detected by any games depending on GPU. Is there a way to force games to use Havok Physics instead of Nvidia Physx?


Thanks in Advance.

  1. As far as i know its down to which form of Physics in incorperated into the game engine. Physics and Physx are not the same thing however.
    You dont need to install anything extra to use Havok.
    Im sure someone who understands it better than i do will explain it properly in due course.
