Physics acceleration: the Next Big Thing?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was surfing the web when I came across something cool:
http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20060322-6436.html

Dont know if anyone here is familiar with this already, its talks about some new type of graphics technology that comes with add-on cards.

It should be available soon.

We are seeing something far more revolutionary than DX10 Conroe or Vista. This could change things forever. You may see motherboards shipping with 3 x PCIe in the future. 2 of them for SLI and another for this physics thing. This is really cool.
