NVIDIA PhysX and NVIDIA APEX Support Announced for Sony Playstation 4

NVIDIA announced that it will provide PhysX and APEX support for the AMD-based Sony PlayStation 4 console.

Game designers use PhysX and APEX technologies for collision detection and simulation of rigid bodies, clothing, fluids, particle systems and more across a wide range of platforms, including desktop PCs, game consoles, mobile and handheld devices.

NVIDIA PhysX technology is made for designing real-time, real-world effects into interactive entertainment titles. NVIDIA APEX technology lets create intricate physics-enabled environments. They can expand the quantity and visual quality of destructible objects; make smoke and other particle-based fluids integral to game play; and create life-like clothing that interacts with the character's body to achieve more realism in their games.

NVIDIA PhysX and APEX technologies are designed to run on a variety of CPU architectures and can be accelerated by any CUDA architecture-enabled NVIDIA GPU.
