It is official. NVIDIA is buying the PhysX maker. Full PR here. This may spell trouble for AMD considering that all major physics engines have been bought (Intel owns Havok). What the industry needs to do is make some open standards. They've got OpenGL for graphics. It sounds like it is time for OpenPL.

Quote

NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA), the world leader in visual computing technologies and the inventor of the GPU, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire AGEIA Technologies, Inc., the industry leader in gaming physics technology. AGEIA's PhysX software is widely adopted with more than 140 PhysX-based games shipping or in development on Sony Playstation3, Microsoft XBOX 360, Nintendo Wii and Gaming PCs. AGEIA physics software is pervasive with over 10,000 registered and active users of the PhysX SDK.


You didn't know that AGEIA survives by supplying the physics engines of all three current consoles?
