AGEIA PhysX UT3 Mod-Kit Available Tomorrow

AGEIA has just announced that its PhysX UT3 Mod-Kit will be available tomorrow. As seen at the Leipzig Games Conference AGEIA PhysX owners will get the promised PhysX-powered mod featuring a tornado which tears the battlefield apart as the game progresses. In addition, the tornado actually sucks rockets into the vortex if they're fired too close and presents a real moving hazard to the player. Actual footage of the tornado can be seen here.Source: AGEIA,[H]ard|OCP

The video didn't look impressive enough for me to actually go out and buy an AGEIA card. In fact it didn't really look that great at all :S.

I'm hoping that one of these days the mobo manufacturers will put physics chips right on the mobo so it uses the system bus, instead of eating up a gc.

Not even worth my 20 bucks.

The Ageia Physx card is OLD technology, it's barely more powerful than an old nVidia FX cards raw throughput!

An old Geforce 4 card would outperform this POS card as a dedicated physics device with ease, and some!

I guess they are still just trying to push their card. Pity more games dont take advantage of it, especially with them lowering the price to 100 bucks.
