New Delhi, India – September 14, 2005
– nSys announced today that AGEIA™ Technologies, Inc, the pioneer in hardware accelerated physics for games, has chosen nSys Verification Suite (nVS) for PCI Express verification.
The AGEIA PhysX™ processor is the world’s first dedicated physics processing unit – a completely new hardware category. The PhysX processor and supporting software deliver the processing horsepower to calculate real-time interactive worlds in video games.
“AGEIA Technologies is transforming the way games are designed, developed and played. We are pleased to welcome AGEIA to our rapidly growing family of customers,” said Atul Bhatia, Director, nSys. “We are focused on providing industry leaders such as AGEIA Technologies with tools for verifying PCI Express based designs. We see nVS gaining significant traction in the marketplace and it makes us feel proud to see our customers using nVS to eliminate bugs at the pre-silicon stage at a much faster rate than they had anticipated, reducing time-to-market while having higher quality end products.”
“We chose nVS over competing solutions for its flexibility and seamless integration into our existing verification environment,” said Andy Keane, vice president of marketing for AGEIA Technologies. “We also have been impressed by the customer support that we received from nSys.” About PCI Express nVS

AGEIA™ Technologies, Inc. is a fabless semiconductor company and the pioneer of hardware-accelerated physics for games. Its flagship product, the PhysX™ processor, is the world’s first dedicated physics processing unit – a completely new hardware category. The PhysX processor and supporting software deliver the processing horsepower to calculate real-time interactive worlds. Developers can define these worlds to obey the laws of classical physics, or create their own physical laws that make their game a unique, hyper-dimensional experience.
AGEIA seeks to ignite innovation in the games industry by working with leading developers, publishers, add-in board vendors and console manufacturers to deliver the next generation of physically immersive entertainment. Consumer add-in boards and systems equipped with the AGEIA PhysX processor and games that take advantage of the technology will be available in late 2005.
