They got the talent but they put him in a dead end project. Integrating graphics into processors is great for netbooks etc. but it's very limited technology.

I guess ATI got tired of Nvidia dragging their feet about releasing PhysX to other developers. I don't know what all the fuss is anyway. To me, PhysX is crap and would have died if Nvidia hadn't bought the technology. Nvidia has a history of buying companies to eliminate competition. I still have a brand new Voodoo card in the box and a Uli motherboard that virtually became useless when Nvidia bought the companies and sidelined them.
Best of luck to ATI. Now about those drivers...

AMD Fusion is more then just the APU. It attempts to create a better working system for the entire computing environment. Thats the ultimate goal of Fusion. The headways in the case of graphics cards started to come in the HD38xx series with the interlink that theoretically could make for better crossfire scaling on video cards with a dis-similar amount of PPUs.
The fact they are bringing on the guy who started the discrete physics solution means they want parallel processing to be a heavy part of the design.
LOL i have a physx card i bought awhile back and i run a 5850 and the physx card stays in my computer parts box.
