Velocity Micro Introduces Gaming PCs Powered by AGEIA PhysX
Richmond, Va., May 9, 2006âVelocity Micro, the premier manufacturer of award winning, ultra performance PCs, announces today the availability of gaming systems with the new AGEIA PhysX graphics solution. Customers can configure Gamersâ Edge and Raptor PCs with the new physics card, which utilizes new graphics technology to deliver a more realistic 3D gaming experience.
âWe are pleased to be a launch partner with AGEIA on this exciting new technology,â said Randy Copeland, CEO and President of Velocity Micro. âGamers are always looking to Velocity Micro to push the envelope when it comes to speed. With the AGEIA PhysX card, we can deliver PCs with even higher levels of performance to our customers.â
The AGEIA PhysX physics processing unit (PPU) is the worldâs first dedicated, hardware-based physics accelerator. PhysX handles the ever-increasing processing demands of 3D games by offloading the calculation of complex physical interactions from the PCâs CPU and GPU. In games designed to take advantage of AGEIA PhysX, this technology can more accurately depict real-world objects and allow many more scene elements to interact in a realistic way. Explosions cause collateral damage to surrounding objects, scene elements can look and react more convincingly to player input, and smoke, fog, and liquids look more genuine.
Fully customizable systems in the Gamersâ Edge and Raptor series with the AGEIA PhysX card are available today at www.velocitymicro.com.
