Would make a good PhysX card, but I bet it will be far too overprices, and hard to find.

Check the bta post above this one. It should give Nvidia a good idea what a graphics card should be like.

You're right, it only has 16, for some reason I was thinking GT220 specs(48) when I read the article. PhysX requires 32 shaders.
