Our friends over at Aelon have a blurb about PhysX, AGEIA’s physics API. It looks to be gaining in popularity. Not only has it been announced by Sony to be a support API in the PS3 dev kits, but others are using it too:
Indeed, Epic has announced that the next Unreal games will be able to make use of it, FutureMark has licensed the technology for future benchmark programs, and the tech demos provided have shown some impressive performance. After reading an interesting article on X-bit Labs just the other day though, it looks like AGEIAâ€™s attempt at controlling an as-yet uninhabited section of the market could be at an end pretty soon.
Why do you care? Hm. Have you been reading? I said that Sony will offer PhysX in the PS3’s development kit! Sheesh!
