NVIDIA to launch physics graphics card in 2006

Posted on Friday, August 12 2005 @ 20:18:06 CEST by

NVIDIA said at the Edinburgh International Conference Center, which runs from August 10 to 14, that they will release a special physics graphics card in 2006.

The Physics Processing Unit (PPU) will take over the physics calculations load from the regular graphics cards. NVIDIA also said both Unreal Tournament 2007 and Gears of War will likely support this feature.

The company also said UT2007 and Gears of War will use the Novodex physics engine and not the Havok one.

Another yet another tiny tidbit: gamedeveloper Rockstar licensed the Unreal 3 Engine for a future title.
