Default Ageia Releases Physics Accelerators for Laptops

Ageia, currently the world’s only provider of dedicated physics processing units (PPUs) for personal computers (PCs), announced on Wednesday at Games Convention conference its first physics accelerator for mobile computers. While Ageia targets the rapidly growing segment of high-performance laptops for gamers, it is unlikely that mobile PhysX card will sell in significant volume.

Ageia PhysX 100M is a specially designed solution that can provide equal performance compared to already shipping Ageia PhysX add-in cards for desktop personal computers, but with power consumption not exceeding 10W, according to Ageia. The chip designer claims that the solution is developed in a way to allow notebook creators to integrate the PhysX 100M into their designs without substantial problems. Nevertheless, considering that print-circuit boards of notebooks usually have no free space, integration of PhysX into mobile computers may not be an easy task to accomplish.
