Why does Ageia think people should buy their physics card with solutions like AMD or NVIDIA Havoc support using a second or third video card on the horizon?
CPUs and GPUs cannot do physics at the feature diversity, scale and performance than the PPU can. In addition as games push the amount of physics in a game, the rendering load and the AI load on the GPU and CPU (the other legs of the gaming power triangle) respectively increase. So, for a game to show off the best physics, one that has the necessary fidelity, scale, interaction and sophistication for a compelling experience, a PPU is absolutely necessary.
