Asus PhysX boards coming in May

The Register reports that Asus will begin
shipping
Ageia PhysX physics accelerators in May. The boards will
have 256MB of memory and an active cooler similar to those seen on
low-end graphics cards. No pricing was disclosed, but
considering that Alienware bundles 128MB
PhysX boards for $275
, offerings with 256MB of RAM may sit on the
upper end of Ageia’s announced $249-299 price range. At those prices, PhysX cards may be a tough sell until developers
rely on them for essential gameplay features, as Havok FX will provide cosmetic hardware-accelerated physics through existing
Shader Model 3.0 graphics cards from NVIDIA and ATI.
