Ageia PPU’s available on Order

Ageia PPU

Ageia’s launch partners have announced that from today you can order their products with Ageia Physics Processing Units.

Apparantly over 60 Developers are working on over 100 titles that would support the new card.

This is excellent news for those of us with top line rigs: he PPU handles the physics calculations for the thousands of extra particles and objects in a scene, BUT the GPU has to draw the additional polygons increased texturing and shading load.

QUOTE=Bit-Tech: City of Villains will be patched, as will Bet on Soldier but the first new games to feature PPU support out of the box – Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter and Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends – won’t arrive until May. The one game that could seriously drive sales – the Unreal Engine 3.0-power Unreal Tournament 2007 is not expected until Q4 2006.

Looking good. Especially with so many members of our forum looking forward to UT2K7….and indeed: the gaming community in general!
