Would definitely make sense, unless they bought them to keep them out of anyone else's hands.

yea if we incorporate it in GPU's it would seem more likely to encourage game designers that are in league with Nvidia would start to take advantage of this

From what I've heard AEGIA is going under anyway for lack of support from developers. No one uses the technology and therefore they are suffering.

I thought physics were more of a CPU resource than GPU resource...anyone know which it is?

It is done with the CPU, but a dedicated unit will obviously be better. I hope they put it to good use and integrate it into GPU's or onto the motherboard.

Newer games will start to support more physics. The new star wars game is suppose to have some dynamic physics.

Poor AMD. There's nothing for them to buy and they're struggling already... Gloomy, I don't want NVIDIA to be a monopoly. Same for Intel.
