Gaming Physics: Einstein on a PCB

It was March 2005 when we all m heard that there might be a new contender in the graphics cards arena. The rumors surrounding the company Ageia hinted that they were to be responsible for the second '3dfx' like graphics revolution for PC games by releasing what they called the PhysX, PPU (Physics Processing Unit). According to AGEIA, things don't just look authentic; they act real and feel real. Massively destructible buildings and landscapes; explosions that cause collateral damage; believable characters with spectacular new weapons; pragmatic smoke, fog and cool oozing fluids are all now possible.

A few months ago (roughly April/May) Ageia released the Physx PPU and ever since had a really rough start. The games that currently support the Physx cards are Ghost Recon (GRAW), City of Villains, Bet on Soldier: Blood Sport and Cellfactor. One of the board partners of this aggressive new idea & innovation is BFG. They recently submitted a PhysX board to, which they'll have a look at today.
