NVIDIA to Acquire AGEIA

NVIDIA to Acquire AGEIA Technologies reports the rumored takeover of the PhysX physics card creator will indeed happen, and that graphics giant NVIDIA is the suitor. Details of the deal, which is still subject to "customary closing conditions," are not revealed. Word is: "More details about the acquisition will be provided during NVIDIA's quarterly conference call, to be held on Wednesday, February 13, 2008 at 2:00 PM, Pacific Time."

It's about time. PhysX cards on their own are nearly useless in almost every game that supports it. But an Nvidia card with a build in PhysX processor is a huge boon. Game companies that make their games with Nvidia in mind (or funded by them) can add that engine right into their games.

Now if only they'd release a card with that built on by May. Cause thats when I'm building my 'monster machine' lol.

That and for the love of god can ASUS make a high end board for AMD chips that uses Nvidia 790i and SLI capability? Ever since AMD bought ATI all the high end AMD boards use ATI cores and Crossfire. I want to support my favorite processor company but I refuse to use ATI cards, I've had far to many bad experiences with them over the years. So if a solid company like ASUS doesn't release an AMD Phenom board with Nvidia 780i and SLI, I'll have to go Intel.
