PhysX87: Software Deficiency

Real World Technologies:

This article delves into the recent history of real-time game physics libraries (specifically PhysX), and analyzes the performance characteristics of PhysX. In particular, through our experiments we found that PhysX uses an exceptionally high degree of x87 code and no SSE, which is a known recipe for poor performance on any modern CPU.
