Games A new company called AIseek announced what it describes as the world's first dedicated processor for artificial intelligence. Called the Intia Processor, the AI chip would work in conjunction with optimized titles to improve nonplayer character AI. Similar to the way in which physics accelerators can make a game's environment look much more realistic, Intia would make the NPCs act more true to life. There goes yet another PCI slot.

C'mon there is PLENTY of hardware power today to achieve good FX without an add-on like this: multiple cores, programmable and fast GPUs, tons of RAM.

Yeah, lots of hardware power if you've got the money to buy it! But for the rest of us, a fast dedicated add-on card would be most likely be a more cost-effective choice. With the price of a high-end processor, motherboard, GPU and RAM, I could get an average system, the add-on card and most likely have some extra money left, too.
