Abyss Lights: Frozen Systems Revealed

This Press Release (thanks Frans) announces the PhysX Processor support in Abyss Lights: Frozen Systems, highlighting a game that had previously gone unnoticed here. Here's their description of this upcoming space combat game in the works at Abyss Light Studio:
Abyss Lights: Frozen Systems is a space-based fly ā€™nā€™ shoot-style 3D game that applies the physics capabilities of AGEIA PhysX technology in the context of outer space. The game is replete with spectacular explosions, collisions, flying objects, and extensive interaction of objects with different masses and shapes. Spacecraft and machinery are designed with complex and multileveled structures, which allow them to sustain minor injury, major damage or total obliteration, creating stunning realism for players.

If you are going to throw that amount of money on a short term product marketing campaign you may aswell give it to charity.

AGEIA = Another Greatly Exaggerated Inane Adaptor?

$200-300 for a physics card? Get the f*** out of here!

(they're being manufactured by Asus I think.)

Asus and BFG as well I think.

If Asus has it built into the mobo, that would definately be somethin...

What, like 3d cards were in the days of Voodoo?

Oh, yeah...these things always start with the desktop...duh.

... how many pairs of breasts can AGEIA PhysX simulate without reducing framerates and will they be releasing a benchmark tool to run this on our machines?

Yes but I am focusing on gaming use for laptops as this is a gaming site no?

The only way for this to take of is if it is embedded on gfx cards and chipsets.

Can they even be bought seperately yet? I've only seen them offered with built systems such as Alienware and Falcon. They're going to have to sell a lot more and cut the price at least in half for me to get one.

Putting the PPU on the mobo would be nice because that'd keep it from taking up a PCI slot. I'd think it should also be cheaper built on than buying it seperate.

Since I can't seem to find this info (only took a quick look), does anyone know how the physics processor is going to be packaged? Meaning, will be it on the mobo, or on an expansion card (and if so, using what interface?)

It was originally supposed to be a PCI expansion card and as far as I know that's still the plan (they're being manufactured by Asus I think.) I didn't know they were thinking about putting them on mainboards, but that could be a cool idea.

Why would I buy a 32bit laptop now? Why should I buy single core when Apple is dual now also. Why should I buy a Radeon 9700 laptop now? Ofcourse theyll get better hardware just timed for "Vista" and ride that marketing wave.

Maybe if you use a laptop for anything other than games? Hell, my office doesn't even officially support Windows XP, only 2000. Sometimes you don't need new stuff; sometimes you even want the old stuff, because it's cheap, tested, and reliable.

You dont think they will get better hardware just to get a "Vista" sticker? LOL you realy dont know marketing do you.

There was also the tearing of the big banner they showed a few times that was pretty impressive.
Anyone know if also besides physics, if it also helps with the amount of objects as well? Almost in a GPU sorta way?

Talking of which, there is no point in upgrading laptops until Vista is released so they all get gfx hardware upgades and dual core and more memory.

God you are such a fucking idiot.

Must we get spammed about AGEIA, we already had 4 or 5 before.


When I can get hardware physics processing in my laptop, it will be news.

I play more indie games than I do big name ones, so it's all good for me.

In regards to the game, I might get it if I like the artistic style, don't really like the ones with lot's of colors or weird organic looking ships.

I think that AGEIA people are using every opportunity to promote themselves. Even if it means spreading press releases about not so promising efforts like Abyss Lights. I've tried demo (tempted by the fact that it could be another Freelancer), but didn't like it despite bearing in mind, that it is in fact only playable tech demo.

So basically they are just paying every amateur game developer 500 bucks and then putting out a press release announcing how they are using PhysX. I guess they are hoping nobody will notice that these are all low budget indie games? People don't upgrade for these games, they upgrade for Doom3,HL2,Oblivion... not some games that already look 5 years old.

I'm just hoping you mean in the same vein as MW 3...after that, the series went into a dive It just didn't feel like you were commanding a huge robot anymore...more like you were commanding an AIBO or a Robosapiens
