6 Ageia -- too little, too late?

Monday 16th October, 2006

Ageia, the "game physics on a card" people, have released a new driver which prepares the way for the future use of multiple Agiea cards to boost in-game physics for selected games.

After seeing an impressive demonstration of in-game physical effects enabled by the newest (as yet unavailable) Intel Core2 Quad CPU, I can't help thinking that Ageia were just too late with their product. Add to that the need for extra programming to enable these effects, which is just hassle for the programmers and hassle for the gamers.

unsurprisingly, AMD are also rushing to release their own quad core CPUs.
