3D News, GL, DirectX El Reg has one of the first reviews of Ageia PyshX accelerator chip. The four-page review concludes: "The limited number of titles and their disappointing use of the PhysX PPU means that, currently, there's no reason to spend the GBP 200+ to acquire a PhysX card. The current effects in the supported games aren't worth the price and potential performance drop. Cell Factor and awesome Unreal Engine 3.0 games, where art thou? Without them, the PhysX hardware is merely a curiosity. But one to watch."

You know your a little sarcastic, but I do wonder if one could implement at least some of the layout of a modern browser using the apis of this card. I mean it's crazy to say that you need a 'physics accelerator' for a modern browser, but if you've got the horse power why not?
