Actually ageia's system was designed to be quite different and its cards had a task-specific design. What nvidia did was basically kill the original concept, and then made their own system which was a poor substitute for the original concept since they have to do it on a graphics card. And it would have been an enormous shame except that ageia was not going to make it anyway I expect.
