NVIDIA has released the new WHQL version of the PhysX System Software. The PhysX System Software is included with all latest ForceWare graphics drivers but if you don’t have a GeForce graphics card, you have to install the PhysX System Software to use PhysX based applications such as PhyswX FluidMark. PhysX hardware acceleration is available for all GeForce 8-series, 9-series and 200-series GPUs with a minimum of 256MB dedicated graphics memory.

Guru3D has posted a little test with a press version of NVIDIA PhysX driver (not yet available to public), version 8.06.12.
The new 177.39 driver allows GeForce 9800 GTX, GTX 280 and GTX 260 to move physX calculations to the GPU, thus improving performance.
NVIDIA is promising for July a new driver that will allow PhysX for the entire nVidia product line.
According to current plan, confirmed by high ranked Nvidia executives, a driver that will drive PhysX on Geforce 8 and 9 GPUs will come at least a few weeks after announcement of GTX 280.
It will be interesting to compare the performances fo Ageia card to the actually Geforce PhysX scores.
