Nvidia To Bring WHQL-certified PhysX Drivers On August 5th

Santa Clara (CA) - After demonstrating beta drivers featuring GPU-accelerated physics on 3DMark Vantage and Unreal Tournament III (GeForce GTX and 9800 boards), Nvidia is getting ready to release the official Windows driver.

This driver will support PhysX acceleration on all capable GeForce 8, 9 and GTX cards, while carrying Microsoft’s WHQL certificate. More importantly, the new ForceWare driver is expanding PhysX support to all currently available PhysX titles on the market, including Ghost Recon 2: Advanced Warfighter, Warmonger and Cell Factor: Revolution.

We expect that downloads of free games such as Warmonger and Cell Factor will actually spike once again in August, since now those games will be playable on a variety of cards.

    There may be some complaints about about this. But for me, I'm happy/suprised this works at all.
    Now if M$ can finish Direct Physics to work with ANY DX10+ GPU.....

    Also benchmarks please for how this works on old PhysX games and new titles designed to use "normal" GPUs.
