Whats up with that pic. Physx SDK is owned by NVIDIA.

Doesn't Intel own Havok now? So why are they helping AMD all of a sudden? Plans to buy them since Via is approaching the market with NVIDIA?

hmmmm....i think PhysX (by Aegeia...dont know if spelled right) and Havok are two different products by two different brands

But PhysX belongs now to Nvidia (thats right)
and AMD is now getting Havoc (which is a good thing)
so lets see who will deliver the better product
I think PhysX is better (atleast what i saw)...but i dont like Nvidia (they are almost like Intel, Overpriced and not that much more performance...the price/performance percentage isnt right)...ill stick with ATI/AMD, they both offer the right performance for the right amount of money in my eyes
