AGEIA Joins 3DMark Development Group
The Inquirer reports that AGEIA has joined Futuremark's list of vendors on their development team. Here, AGEIA will offer their knowledge of physics to the team to allow the next generation of the popular synthetic 3DMark benchmark to test the full functionality and performance of a physics API. Can you imagine a time where games still fail to fully take advantage of a physics PPU, though you "need" one to improve your 3DMark score? Fortunately, it sounds as though developers are finally gaining momentum with regards to physics so we will hopefully dodge that bullet entirely.
