Ageia to launch its cards in December

Late November possible

WE'VE been hearing a lot about Ageia, the company that announced its physics processing unit. Lately we can not remember that a single week has passed that we haven't heard something about its Physics Processing Unit (PPU) cards. The company is certainly spinning like a top.

From the first day we learned about this product, the company planned to introduce its retail products sometime in Q4 2005 and this is exactly what is going to happen.

We spoke with some knowledgeable people and learned that some of those cards should be available and announced either in late November or in early December.

We know that Asus will be one of the companies selling such cards, and last time we checked, the estimated suggested retail price was $249.

Ageia plans to announce the cards with content as the chips and cards are already finalised, but you kind of need physically advanced demos and games to prove to the world that money is spent wisely.

We've seen an Ageia cardin action and it indeed looks cool, we think it will change games for the better, at a price of course. µ
