Nvidia adds PhysX engine to video chips - Macromedia Director 3D

According to BetaNews, Nvidia has added PhysX engine to a new line of video chips. I have yet to use the 3D features of Director 11, but is this not the same new engine used in Director 11? And is this not good news for Director's future? http://www.betanews.com/article/Nvidia_adds_PhysX_engine_to_new_line_of_video_chip s_for_notebooks/1217363938...

    Intel, AMD and Havok are working together to improve their upcoming CPU-PPUs.
    I don't think Nvidia-Ageia have a chance in this battle.

    I'm so tired of reading this over and over again.
    Can't you just imagine, that maybe Havok was way to expensive to add to
    Director?
    Don't you realize, that Macromedia/Adobe and Havok couldn't make a new deal
    for years?
    There must be reasons why it didn't come true and I'm pretty sure it wasn't
    only Macromedia/Adobe's fault.

    Imho, you should be happy to have a physics engine at all.
    And complaining over and over again doesn't change facts.

    Cheers,
    Martin

    Adobe is riding a pony, if you like.
    The fact is that Ageia in Director is better than nothing (in Director).

    Nvidia has now released drivers that support Ageia PhysX without the need
    for an add-in card:
