With nVidia's Quad SLI and now real world physics starting to make a real appearance at the retail consumer level, it is a very happening month for those people who want to have the ultimate PC gaming experience. The good thing though - unlike Quad SLI - the AGEIA PhysX hardware while being expensive is a lot more affordable.
With an RRP of $299 USD in the USA and $499 AUD in Australia, the BFG PhysX hardware accelerated physics card we are looking at today doesn't come in cheap and at the moment the only game that people are talking about is Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter.
Since this is the game everyone is talking about, we are going to have a quick look at just what is on offer from the BFG Tech AGEIA PhysX card and to see if it's worth throwing those hard earned dollars at.
First up we will have a look at the card and the technology and then we will get into some comparison shots between having hardware AGEIA physics enabled and disabled. Read on as we deliver our introduction to AGEIA PhysX and what it is designed to do for gaming to take the whole experience to the next level in terms of realism.
