AGEIA PhysX card demonstrated at CES

AGEIA is showing off its PhysX card at CES 2006 in Las Vegas, claiming its partners will launch the card later this quarter. The reason it takes so long to launch this card is because there aren't any games available that support this card.
The demo had hundreds of barrels, boxes and other pieces that you could shoot with a great cannon and create some great physics experiences. We saw the demo of the PPU card with two Nvidia's cards in SLI versus the same machine with same SLI cards without Physics card. The guys ran the demo on both machines simultaneously and the machine without Physics Processing Unit was rendering only a few frames per second. The one with Physics card inside was rendering the same scene at more than 30 FPS constantly. It's 6 FPS without versus 30 with, not bad at all. It just looks great and we even have a picture that might show you a little bit what it's like.
