    Next gen PhysX card spy photo

    Next generation PhysX card exposed!!



    Next gen PhysX card is by AGEIA, but the interface changed from PCI to PCI-Express x8. The supply connection looks like ATi high end graphic card(I believe looks like 9800 PRO), according to the connector the card will certainly be power hungry.



    On the top of the card there is a connector which looks like SLi and CrossFire. Multi PhysX cards is not a rumour it seems.






    The size of the chip has been largely increase, which is believed to be much more powerful than its predecessor. One thing which is funny is the card is using 7600GT reference heatsink to cool the processor down.

    I can accept failure. Everyone fails at something. But I can't accept for not trying.

    My question is why? PhyX card support is dying as more and more developers are using the extra cores on CPUs and GPUs to do physics calculations.

    Why it has Nvidia stock cooler for 7900GT and what does molex connector do in PCI-e card. It has to be really early prototype from Ageia or it is something like that from Nvidia.

    Most boards do not have PCIe x8 slots. If someone plug it into their
    2nd PCIe x16 slot, will the board go haywire especially those
    that support XFire or SLI?

    Also they better change that fan once it reaches retail, because
    than fan always runs at full blast even at idle!

    The fan has nothing to do with it's controllability.
    The board decides how much voltage it gives for the fan.

    i can understand the cooler.. but sli bridge? wtf... rumor/self made shit lah... unreliable source imo

    theoretically it'll work..... or we could try the 3rd PCI-E X16 slot on 680i and that DFI RD600 board.....

    I got an motherboard with the Intel P35 chipset, and the 2nd PCIe x16
    slot only runs at x4 mode (but that's not the point). If someone
    has an SLI or XFire board, then in order to enable CF or SLI they must connect the bridge and enable it through software otherwise, it'll just be 2 separated video cards running independently instead of dual gpu mode? Now if that is true then users who are
    not planning to run SLI or CF may install this PhysX card into their 2nd or 3rd (if their's support more than 2 PCIe x16s) slot. Am I correct or not?

    Also that power is just a standard molex connector, now why did the author said it's similar to ATi's and it'll be power hungry?
    Nvidia used those connectors too. ATi's power hungry cards uses the PCIe 2.0 power specs and
    that's an 8-pin PCIe power connector, not a standard molex!
