NVIDIA today announced support for Sony's PlayStation 4 with the NVIDIA PhysX and NVIDIA APEX software development kits (SDKs).
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, and mobile and handheld devices.
NVIDIA PhysX technology is a physics solution for designing real-time, real-world effects into interactive entertainment titles. The PhysX development environment gives developers control over the look of their final in-game interactivity.
NVIDIA APEX technology lets artists create 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 can be accelerated by any modern Nvidia GPU.
