Asus made an agreement with AGEIA Technologies to launch motherboards with AGEIA PhysX processors.

Details of the agreement will be announced at a later date, but the two companies have agreed in principle that ASUS will develop and market PPU boards with the AGEIA PhysX processor, the world's first and only dedicated physics processing unit.

Gamers using ASUS add-in boards with the AGEIA PhysX processor will experience unprecedented physics-based effects and environments in next-generation games. Products are expected within 2005, coinciding with the release of popular game titles incorporating AGEIA physics technology.
