AGEIA GAME System Software

What is AGEIA GAME System Software?

AGEIA GAME System Software manages PhysX, a PPU expansion card designed by Ageia to accelerate PhysX-enabled video games. Video games supporting hardware acceleration by PhysX can be accelerated by either a PhysX PPU or a CUDA-enabled GeForce GPU thus offloading physics calculations from the CPU, allowing it to perform other tasks instead. A physics processing unit (PPU) is a processor specially designed to alleviate the calculation burden on the CPU, specifically calculations involving physics. PPU cards with PhysX support were available from the manufacturers ASUS, BFG Technologies and ELSA Technology.
