    I prefer this technology over the PhysX chips.
    A way to put your older cards to good use.

    Hey, thats really intresting. I like the look of the dual cards with a third for physics. Thats pretty nifty, and incorperated in the card itself. I guess everyone will being buying a x1300xt then to use as the physics card, bargain.

    Explains what some of the boards with 3 PCI-E 16X slots are for :D. Fantastic :D

    how about...the programs get smart...the cards get smart..the drivers get smarter and we do load balancing between all the cards in the system(as in balance between physics and rendering or whatever else the decide they wish to do).

    like they should have done when the light globe went on a the thought of multiple GPU's

    yea, thats awesome....
    thats a solution that actually makes sense from my viewpoint.....
    and the physics processing card is cheaper (well could be) than the Phyx Ageia one :thumbup: :thumbup:
