GDC: Physics Accelerator Demo

Posted Fri, Mar 24, 2006 by Ethec

The next big thing in PC hardware

And no, we're not talking about your e-peen. It's the AGEIA physics accelerator, a nifty piece of hardware that works along with your graphics card to produce some wicked new effects - everything from cloth tearing to fluid dynamics to rotating orbs of high-gravity doom! The most exciting part - it's coming to an MMORPG near you this summer.

His character just sucked a car towards an articial gravity sphere, then from 20 feet away bolts of... I dunno....telekinesis shooting out of its quavering hand. And no, the demostrator wasn't using cheat codes, he was using AGEIA; the new standard in physics acceleration.

No hardware? No problem. AGEIA enabled games can operate without hardware support, that is, for a slight performance penalty. [/twirls mustache] Nevertheless, I dream AGEIA, you can too!
