NVIDIA PhysX 9.13.1220
PhysX support for nVIDIA GPUs
NVIDIA PhysX is the tool that was made available in order to help you easily add support for the above mentioned technology. Though the use of this software, you can obtain superior physics simulation and more fluid movement in your favorite games.
Utilizing the GPU's capabilities to perform highly complex calculations, NVIDIA PhysX makes the action more realistic, while improving the look and feel of the games. This way, hardware-accelerated physics can turn interactions with various elements into life-like experiences.
The PhysX configuration area is easily accessible from the 'NVIDIA Control Panel' and it offers you the possibility to manually select the processor that will be used. Also, the choice can be done automatically if you use the recommended setting 'Auto-select'.
Insofar as the supported hardware is concerned, NVIDIA PhysX can work with many GeForce series, including 8, 9, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 as well as 600-series, requiring at least 256 MB dedicated graphics memory.
Games like Borderlands 2, Hawken, Mafia II, Batman: Arkham City or Batman: Arkham Asylum are on the list of titles that support PhysX. Enabling this technology means you can enjoy spectacular effects, denser fog and smoke, more detailed characters with life-like movements and a more natural behavior of objects when certain actions occur.
To sum things up, if you own a graphics card that supports NVIDIA PhysX, it's a must that you install and use this software because it can dramatically improve the gaming experience. No complex configurations are required and even less experienced users can benefit from this powerful technology with minimal efforts.
