NVIDIA to acquire AGEIA

nvidialogoNVIDIA announced plans to acquire AGEIA Technologies today. In an eerie example of the Twilight Zone, it was only two months ago when we reported that rival AMD considered picking up AGEIA.

AGEIA Technologies, who produces its own PhysX software/hardware physics technology, seemed to be hitting hard strides, especially when other rivals like Havok have hit the mainstream gaming scene.

The deal won’t be final till a little while and more details about the acquisition will be revealed next Wednesday during a NVIDIA conference call.

Manju Hegde, co-founder and CEO of AGEIA, said, "NVIDIA is the perfect fit for us. They have the world’s best parallel computing technology and are the thought leaders in GPUs and gaming. We are united by a common culture based on a passion for innovating and driving the consumer experience."

Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of NVIDIA, said, "The AGEIA team is world class, and is passionate about the same thing we are — creating the most amazing and captivating game experiences. By combining the teams that created the world’s most pervasive GPU and physics engine brands, we can now bring GeForce(R)-accelerated PhysX to hundreds of millions of gamers around the world."
