AGEIA Releases PhysX Mobile Processor
| by Jayesh Mansukhani |
It is inevitable given the rapid pace of development in the PC industry, that there will be concepts and projects which while being promising on paper never deliver in reality.
One such product is AGEIA’s PhysX card which has been around for over a year now. The product promised the earth by hoping to deliver multiple independent game physic operations and therefore introduce a new realism in PC games. It was a foregone conclusion on AGEIA’s part that their technology would find rapid acceptance with game developers and would soon become mainstream. However it was not to be. Though a couple of games like the Ghost Recon series have embraced the technology, AAA titles that utilize the technology have been almost impossible to come by.
Keeping this in mind, I wonder what possessed AGEIA to release a mobile version of their PhysX card. This new product which has just been unveiled promises unmatched “power, efficiency and design flexibility.” It is been given the name of PhysX 100 and this is what they have to say about it.
"AGEIA is fully committed to delivering the most intensely realistic gaming and entertainment experience to PC gamers," said Manju Hegde, CEO of AGEIA Technologies. "We are enabling enthusiasts to enjoy games their way: whenever and wherever they want. AGEIA PhysX Mobile Technology further expands our position in the gaming market and we look forward to seeing new laptops bring gamers the freedom to enjoy incredible physics action on the go."
AGEIA will be showcasing the PhysX 100M at the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany. Let’s hope for their sake, that we will soon some titles that can make use of their product... or the company will soon be heading the way of the hoop skirt, being politically correct and WoW not being a grind fest.
