BFG Ageia PhysX review

Videocards 1019 Published by Hilbert Hagedoorn 0

It was March 2005 when heard that there might be a new contender in the graphics cards arena. The rumors surrounding the company Ageia hinted that they were to be responsible for the second '3dfx' like graphics revolution for PC games by releasing what they called the PhysX, PPU (Physics Processing Unit). According to AGEIA, things don't just look authentic; they act real and feel real. Massively destructible buildings and landscapes; explosions that cause collateral damage; believable characters with spectacular new weapons; pragmatic smoke, fog and cool oozing fluids are all now possible.

SoundBlaster X-Fi Driver 2.09.0001

Generic Audio Drivers & Media Codecs 119 Updated by Hilbert Hagedoorn 0

This update should particulary be interesting for X-Fi Elite PRO users since it is the first non-beta driver for the X-Fi Elite Pro since November 15th 2005. Owners of the X-Fi XtremeMusic, Platinum and Fatal1ty cards will notice that the version number (2.09.0001) is the same as the one already released in July so no change here.
