Out in May and ready to fly

TAIWANESE GIANT Asustek said it will be the only company to manufacture and sell the 256MB Ageia PhysX card - the high end model.

The firm described the physics accelerator card as a "totally new category" in PC hardware. Sixty developers are working on over 100 games that will use it, said Asus.

The cards will be available in May, and Asus didn't say how much it was going to cost. But you can probably count on the words "totally new category" as meaning you will have to totally dig into your wallets, and disperse those moths that have been nesting in there.

Asus sent a pretty picture of the thing. µ
