ASUS Unveils Add-In Card with PhysX Processing Unit

| Posted: May 9, 2006 10:13 am

Sourced over at Hardware Zone today, ASUS have just lifted the curtain on their variant of the AGEIA PhysX card. With stacks of gaming titles on the horizon to take advantage of hardware physics processing, i'm sure these cards will start selling like hotcakes in the coming months.

 


Asus Technology is proud to introduce the PhysX P1 card, which adopted Ageia's all-new PhysX Processing Unit (PPU) to take gamers to a completely new level of video realism. Currently, only two companies have the capability to develop PPU cards, and ASUS is one of the pioneers. ASUS will begin distributing this exciting new product this month.

 

In a gaming system, the CPU (Central Processing Unit) drives game AI and logic, while the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) delivers beautiful three-dimensional visual representation. The PPU takes gaming to the next level with never-seen-before dynamic motion and interaction.
