Mid-way through 2005, these PhysX
cards seemed set to be the next big thing in PC gaming. Then, perhaps
in part due to their association with the woeful Bet On Soldier title,
they seemed to just drop off the map. Now they’re back and still
touting the same graphical performance leap as before and with the
possibility of actually going on sale in the near future. For a quick
recap, the AEGIA PhysX card takes over the complicated physics
processing normally handled by your CPU and GPU, basically freeing up
the two to give you not only an improved frame rate in games, but also
dramatically enhanced physical events that greatly improves realism.
They should be on sale sometime in the first quarter of this year.
