Asus to ship PhysX cards with a game - Page 2

post #11 of 30
nice, thats something I have been trying to figure out for some time. Why don't they just sell the dual use prototype, cause that would probably be best.

Well the Physics card will be dedicated to that kind of processing so wil out do such devices as a g-card.

Unless you're playing or having lots of those games that supports physx it's not worth it or at least not now yet, I mean the thing doesn't even help increase frame rates...And I think they're over doing the price $300 is a really bad price seeing that the price tag matches the 7900GT...Who would pay $300 to blow things up, I wouldn't or at least not now, I don't wanna blow up my computer.

I'm not spending $299 for the card, I'm better off buying a X1800 or something.

Don't get me wrong, from the technological pow it's a great thing to have phisics processors developed, and I hope future games will support them, but for now it's funny to see them asking for 300$ for...what?

For the record, this topic has been also dicussed on this thread:

As most people have said, it's not worth it at the moment, but over time the price will drop. At the moment the company who sells/makes this new graphics technology is testing the market and has set the price point high to off-set the initially low sales they will get. When games that support this new technology become more abundant, sale will go up and the price point will drop, which in tern will make sales go up again and the price point go down again until the best ratio of sales/price/profit is found and then the price will stabilise for a while until the next generation of the new technology comes out and then it all starts over again...

I won't be buying and probably never will do... I struggle to afford my graphics card on its own, let alone an additional card to take some load off of the CPU and provide a more realistic 3D environment. Still, I guess I shouldn't say never; if my finances improve, I might give it try .

Yes i also do beleive that the Physics card is overpriced..I wouldnt buy one at the prices they are at at the moment..but like everything they will come down in price.

I am sure there were similar responses to the first Uber Gcards back in the day--now spending $300 on a Gcaed or even two is common for hardcore gaming ability. The bottle neck holding back Vcard ability is the processor--and the Phyzix card cures that. For an introduction of some new tech I think Asus is taking the right approach--pair it with a game that will take advantage of it. New hardware is always overpriced.

I predict the Phyzix card will become as common as a high end soundcard in UberGamer Rigs.

They will definately cut down on the bottlenecks we have.
