Haven't they (nVidia) said that they were going to build theirs gpu's to run physics anyways? Which would have made physics cards unnecessary.
I guess if you can't beat them, buy them.
They probably bought them for their IP. Didn't want to pay them royalties plus now they get to charge their competitors royalties if they want to integrate.
I'd like to see a physics card integrated on the next NVIDIA chipset so you don't have to give up any slots for it.
