NVidia Purchases Gaming Physics Processor Maker PhysX

Graphics card producer NVidia confirmed late yesterday it is purchasing Ageia Technologies, the first producer of so-called ‘physics processors’ for 3D gamers, for an undisclosed amount. Ageia Technologies is best known for its PhysX processor, which is supported by popular games such as Gears of War, the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon series, and Unreal Tournament 3. Working under NVidia’s wing will help the company properly implement PhysX into future product launches, which should result in a broader target market.
