While Nvidia fans and consumers are waiting for live demonstration of long-awaited GF100 (Fermi) GPU on CES 2010, we are focused on new PhysX demos and games that Nvidia, without doubt, has brought to CES.

Thanks to PC Watch website, sneak peak on GF100 demo system is already available (video by TweakTown)

More interesting, Nvidia will demonstrate special “Supersonic Sled” PhysX demo on this system, according to PC Games Hardware

Nvidia confirmed to PC Games Hardware that there will be a special Physx demo, called Supersonic Sled, on display at the CES. The rocket that is shown, isn’t just animated physically correct, but also offers the appropriate smoke – the destructible obstacles are animated correctly, too. The demo supports DirectX 11 and 3D Vision.

Update: Supersonic Sled demo was shown running on Thermaltake Element system, with three GF100 GPUs inside. Only one demo screenshot is present, blurry because of stereo effect (click to view full pic)

Dark Void with GPU PhysX will be shown at CES 2010

with one comment

We were little worried that Dark Void, staying without updates on GPU PhysX support status since first press-release, will follow the way of other “abandoned” PhysX titles, like Terminator Salvation. Fortunately, certain sources indicates that PC version of Dark Void is going to be shown at CES 2010, being held in Las Vegas on January 7-10.

According to, Dark Void “with special Nvidia-powered PhysX enhancements” will be presented at PC Gaming Alliance Booth – North Hall #5616.

Moreover, user Zed X, referring to invitation for CES show, reports on forums that NVIDIA will showcase one GF100 (Fermi) card running Dark Void on three monitors setup, with PhysX effects and 3D Vision enabled.

We’ll try to keep an eye on this, and will inform you on all PhysX related news from CES.

Update: according to, PC demo of Dark Void won’t be released, while console demos will be available this week.
