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."

If Microsoft comes out with a completely different physics API in DirectX, the card makers will have to comply or not compete.
Then Havok and Aegeia etc are all as doomed as glide and hardware curved-surface rendering on the Nvidia NV1 was.

Also, I wonder what this does to Nvidias' GeForce 9 'Quantum Effects' engine work?

And lastly, external power-supply bricks universally suck!
That's why you don't get dinky little hifi's,VCRs and DVD players with damned nuisance bricks to hide against the wall.
Why the big console companies imagine that they will ever make it into the living roon as a media centre with non-stackable hot-running box with a lump in a wire to hide somewhere, I can't imagine.
