You may recall a recent article on Nvidia's offer to ATI. Nvidia gave ATI the opportunity to use PhysX if they took up CUDA. Well, the result from this offer has been agreed! ATI have decided to go with Nvidia; this is not a huge surprise as ATI could have been out of a job if it didn't take up PhysX. Nvidia could easily force it upon game developers.


So the question now is what happens to Havok?
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star.

Hard to say, isn't it? Maybe Intel will shelf Havoc for now and hope to reintroduce it when they have their own graphics solution ready. Maybe Intel will try and get in on manufacturing one of the next generation of consoles and hope to use cross platform delevopment to get Havoc back into use. I don't know. It really does not look good for Havoc short term though.
