Nvidia completed its acquisition of Ageia yesterday, and it has revealed that it will soon introduce PhysX physics processing support into all of its GeForce 8-series graphics cards through a simple software download. PhysX support will allow the cards to accelerate physics effects in games.
I have one in my computer and I really do love it. Any game that uses the Ageia physX package runs better with the hardware stuff turned on than off.
Takes a pretty big load off the CPU.
