Outrage over physics drivers: Is Nvidia guilty?
Summing up, AMD claims that the ForceWare 177.39 driver "fools" the 3DMark Vantage benchmark. We're not so sure. Ageia has built a very solid library of titles that use the PhysX API. Being a standard library within the Unreal Engine got Ageia more than one hundred contracts alone. PhysX is the most common used physics API for console games (NovodeX and Meqon APIs) today, Sony has licensed PhysX SDK as the official physics engine for Playstation 3 console, Microsoft licensed PhysX for their own Robotics Studio and the list goes on. So, why would we undermine PhysX' value as an API? Because of Intel's Havok?
Wasn't this a case of "fooling" a benchmark in the first place?
