Intel to buy Irish game software tools firm reports that Intel is purchasing Havok, the creator of physics software used in both games and movies (thanks Mike Martinez). Word is the Dublin-based company will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel, and that they will continue to operate independently.

Yeah, I don't know how you can compare them. Everyone needs a CPU. Even though I liked the idea of dedicated physics, the PhysX card will never take off. A havoc chipset on Intel MBs is even less likely to happen than decent integrated graphics, just because of added cost per MB.

Personally, I'd rather see an option to dedicate a core to physics rather than a separate card or making more use of an already taxed graphics card. Intel buying Havok makes that more likely to happen.
