AGEIA Brings PhysX Dedicated Physics Processor To Market
AGEIA announced the availability of its PhysX processor, the first physics processing unit (PPU) designed to power pervasive real-time physics in PC gaming. The PPU is available in systems from Alienware, Dell, and Falcon Northwest. AGEIA PhysX Accelerator add-in boards from ASUS and BFG will be available in wide distribution in May of this year.
The AGEIA PhysX processor, with its massively parallel interactive PhysX engines, has been specifically designed to accelerate dynamic physical motion and interaction in games. Games optimized for the hardware-accelerated physics provided by the PhysX processor will feature complex characters, objects and environments that fully interact based on real-world, real-time properties.
With the PhysX accelerator installed in their PCs, gamers can now have different experiences every time they play a game. For example explosions will be in real-time and specific to the interaction of objects, not just replays of the same animation over and over again. Now game objects can smash, bounce, deform, shatter or explode and cause a different chain reaction every time, depending on physical laws such as force, speed, volume, pressure, or density.
More than one hundred games designed for and supporting the AGEIA PhysX processor are in development from over 60 software developers and publishers. Game developer and publishing partners include UbiSoft, Cryptic Studios, NCSoft, Epic Games and Sega, among many others.
