Here comes AMD and NVIDIA to ruin my celebration of the format war’s end. The two computer hardware manufacturers have decided they are tired of waiting for the USB Implementers Forum (founded by Intel in 1995 with Microsoft, HP, Texas Instruments, NEC and NXP Semiconductors) to give them the specs on USB 3.0, so they are launching a competing spec.
Havok also introduced new technology at this year’s Game Developers Conference. Havok Cloth and Destruction provide even more control over cloth and destructible objects in games. The new technology will integrate with Havok Physics and Animation directly out of the box.
