Ageia Unveils PhysX for Mobile Computers.

Ageia PhysX 100M is a specially designed solution that can provide equal performance compared to already shipping Ageia PhysX add-in cards for desktop personal computers, but with power consumption not exceeding 10W, according to Ageia. The chip designer claims that the solution is developed in a way to allow notebook creators to integrate the PhysX 100M into their designs without substantial problems. Nevertheless, considering that print-circuit boards of notebooks usually have no free space, integration of PhysX into mobile computers may not be an easy task to accomplish.

If the physics chip can be made to run at 10w for a notebook, surely Ageia could make a smaller, cheaper less power hungry version for desktop pc's...

Ageia interestingly stated:

"The PPU can be used for accelerating other calculations in scientific, engineering and financial applications such as DCC [digital content creation], video encoding/decoding, financial options pricing, CAD applications, medical imaging etc. We are working with partners on each of these applications," said Manju Hedge, chief executive of Ageia, in an interview, adding that the company plans to offer software that would allow running generic C code on the PhysX chip
