"Super low cost part on the horizon?"

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.
