It seems like it renders game physics better....or something like that.

Yeah, it's a pretty gay card...with only 128MB of video memory....A 6600 GT probably out-performs this in terms of most everything.

this is not a video card. is a totally new processor design, which will offload physics from the cpu/video card. Those cards are not designed for physics calculations, and so physics engines have always been limited. with a new co processor devoted to physics, fully destructable environments are possible, and with the free CPU power, better AI. Of course, it is useless unless games support it, and if support grows, I plan on picking one up. for now, I will wait.

I imagine there will be support for it down the line, however. Dell is already putting ageia cards in their new top-line systems, which means they have sufficient reason to believe this is an important technology. I am inclined to agree.

I know what it does too, I saw immediately it wasn't a video card when I saw no ports on the back, plus, BFG isn't a video card designer.

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter is going to support it, so I'm saving up already. icon_biggrin.gif

BFG is actually a pretty good make, IMO. I have a 6800GS (BFG) running in my other computer, and it's doing the job great. I can OC it high, and it's stable.

It makes things like expolsions and blood gushing out of people more realistic. They have some side by side vids of Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter running w/ and w/o it on there site. I think GR is the only game that uses it now but games like Unreal 2007 will use it and they have some other really cool vids on there site too. I can't remmember the site now I think someone posted in general gaming awhile back or just google it.

Just because dell puts it in their PCs doesn't mean it is worth it. They did put quad sli in their systems...
