They probably want to push it out there, making it more available, so that becomes the standard vs. Nvidia's offerings for physics. As I understand it the difference should be Nv's offering (PhysX?) will have the GPU do the calculations - Havok / Intel's will rely on the CPU to do the calculations. So depending on which system is used more in games one company or the other will have another selling point to their product.
