ELSA release PhysX card

"Super low cost part on the horizon?"

Elsa have released a very low cost PhysX card in Japan. If it was released for a price NEAR to this low over the world, they would sell a lot of cards!
 
It looks like graphics card manufacturer ELSA has jumped onto the PhysX bandwagon, or at least its Japanese branch has, as we couldn't find the Phynite X100 card on the European website.

The fact that ELSA has a PhysX card might not be great news in itself, but when you realise that this card sells for the ridiculus price of ¥5,980 or about €37 in Japan, then it's big news.

Both Asus and BFG are selling their cards in Europe for well over €100 a piece and this has been one of the factors putting people off buying into physics acceleration. At €37 we're sure Ageia will have a lot more sales and we can only hope that the cards comes to Europe at this price point some time very soon.

With game support finally starting to appear, a drastic reduction in the hardware price might just give Ageia the kick start they need to make people interested in what they have to offer.

i think "the end is nigh" for ages. I think the chip companies will just find away around the problems or just move to another tech.

Yeah I was thinking the same and its even said in that article... Like it says they are already working on other avenues to go down.

Just a half interesting read.
