    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.

    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.
