The GTX490/495 will be a dual chip card, if you choose, you can use the extra chip to dedicated to PhysX. This essentially is what you want nVidia to do. Also, I did a little test with my GTX470. GTX470@815/1630/2000 GTX470@815/1630/2000 w/ 8800GTS dedicated to PhysX: So adding a dedicated GPU to do PhysX like you want doesn't make a difference! As I said before, a GTX470 is more than enough for PhysX on its own, there is no need for a dedicated PhysX processor. Having it as a value added feature for all their GPU owners is a good thing. Having the option to either do it with the single card you already have, or buy a second dedicated card is the best solution. Forcing everyone to buy a second card is bad, and why Ageia failed. Despite what you seem to think more options = a good thing.
