What are AMD playing at The only advantage I can see to this is if they are planning on integrating physics processing into the all in one systems they have been proposing

Thats what i thought,

Do you think its a good move of AMD?

Well tbh if AMD does go with Havok, meaning that Intel and AMD and ATI will be pushing this specific physics engine in games, making it 100% of performance cpu manufacturers using the engine and lets say roughly i dont even know, its defo not 50% but pretty sure in the fourties or mid thirties of graphics card manufacturer ie Ati, so in all honesty theres only gonna be another monopoly which isnt good for gamers or Nvidia,

It seems like AMD are going way of like 3DFX did and putting their fingers in way to many places. I think their hand will get burned in the end.
