GTX 680: PhysX Benchmarks roundup

with 12 comments

Finally, NVIDIA has officially presented their new GPU – GTX 680, built on 28nm GK104 chip, which itself is based on next-gen Kepler architecture.

Many rumors were floating around Kepler and its physics acceleration capabilities, some were endowing new GPU with dedicated PhysX blocks, others were claiming ability to run CPU PhysX games in hardware – none of this happens to be true. Nothing special (like NVENC video encoder) for physics calculations, just general improvements to chip architecture, SM clusters, etc.

Nonetheless, we will try to gather all available information regarding PhysX computation performance of the GTX 680, in comparison to previous generation GPUs.

Interesting results – in this case, GeForce GTX 680 performance is higher than Radeon HD 7970 even with GPU PhysX effects enabled. However, we can not directly compare GTX 580 and GTX 680 due to different resolution settings.

It is now official – Borderlands 2 will be the next game to support GPU accelerated PhysX effects.

Update: GPU PhysX trailer was caught on camera

Update #2: new official PhysX trailer

At GeForce Kepler Editor’s Day (event, during which Kepler GPUs were presented to press), Borderlands 2 demo featuring GPU PhysX effects was demonstrated by Randy Pitchford, Gearbox Founder and CEO, running on a GeForce GTX 680 GPU.

Hardware accelerated content will include:

  • Fully simulated tearable cloth which interacts with weapons, forces, weather, etc
  • Persistent GPU simulated particles that interact with the world
  • Fully-interactive fluids
  • Maybe something more

NVIDIA will demonstrate new GPU PhysX game at PDXLAN?

with 6 comments

NVIDIA and Gearbox are bringing something really special to PDXLAN 19.

Attendees are in for an exclusive treat that will blow your mind!!”

These welcome words can be found on official page of upcoming PDXLAN event.

Rumors are saying, that NVIDIA will demonstrate special PhysX demo of a game from Gearbox Software, running on next-gen “Kepler” GPU.

UPDATE [19.02.2012]: NVIDIA presentation was held on Saturday (18 Feb), at 5 pm.

According to some people, who was participating in the event – NVIDIA was not showing Kepler GPUs.

Intead, there were Tegra 3 presentation, giveaway contests (with T-shirts and even Transformer Prime tablets) and Borderlands 2 demo. But, unfortunately, “no word on PhysX“  support in Borderlands.
