Ageia has announced that its first PhysX physics accelerator cards built by Asus and BFG Tech are now available worldwide in the retail channel. In the U.S., Ageia says retailers like Best Buy, Newegg, TigerDirect, and "many others" are carrying the new PhysX boards. We couldn't find any listed at Best Buy or Newegg, but TigerDirect is indeed selling a BFG PhysX card with 128 MB of memory for $299. The card is in stock, but its price is a bit higher than the $249 and $275 charged by Dell and Alienware, respectively, for PhysX cards in their high-end gaming desktops. Nonetheless, the recent release of Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter for the PC and the Cell Factor: Combat Training demo should give eager early adopters something to do with those retail PhysX boards.
Update: The BFG Tech cards are now showing up as in stock at Newegg, as well.
