Physics processing products to arrive this year
Team Xbox has a lengthy interview
with AGEIA Technologies, creators of the PhysX physics processing unit (PPU). The company is apparently in talks with not only volume and high-end OEMs, but also motherboard and even laptop manufacturers in an attempt to get its chip integrated into "any device that can benefit from physical simulation applications." According to AEGIA CEO Manju Hegde, boards and systems equipped with physics processing units will appear in time for this year's holiday buying season.
