In AMD's latest move in the game space they have begun working more closely with their subsidiary Havok, to better optimise physics handling simulations.
Intel has already announced their partnership with NVIDIA, who bought up the physics guys and gals at AGEIA. Good news for gamers.
"The success of Havok as a cross platform software company is predicated on our willingness to listen to the needs of our customers," said Havok director David O'Meara.
Havok is used by a tremendous number of titles, over 300 apparently, with most recent titles including Ensemble Studio's Age of Empires III and 2K's BioShock.
"By working with the clear market leader in physics software, AMD can optimize our platforms to consistently deliver the best possible visual experience to the gamer," added AMD graphics product VP Rick Bergman.
