    So are they planning to keep Havok or just run them into the ground like Nvidia did with ULI?

    thing to note is, with advent of Ageia 's physx engine, how many titles will actually support Havok in future ?

    The gamers will again be divided- If a game supports havok physics and u have a nvidia card , will u be able to enable physics on that game unless u buy a AMD card ? and same goes with physx supporting games .
