Today's top-shelf computer games look pretty stunning, especially when you run them using a PC with a powerful graphics chip and a speedy processor. But you have to admit, even the best games still don't look completely realistic. From the way explosions appear, to the way water flows, to the way a character falls down, there's still something less than real about it. The folks at a company named Ageia say the missing element is real-world physics, and they want you to add a third processor -- a physics processing unit -- to your PC. The PPU would let game developers add more physics effects and complexity to their games.
We recently gave you a full preview of Ageia's PhysX PPU right here, so you can get the inside scoop, HH style.
