Ageia has finished their work of porting the PhysX technology to CUDA so it can work on Nvidia GeForce 8000 and up series cards. Both Nvidia and Ageia are working on quality assurance now but very soon your NVIDIA card will double as PhysX accelerator for more than 140 games. According to Ageia the PhysX accelerator will work perfectly on 8800 graphics cards but very soon support will be available for all 8000 and 9000 series cards. Ageia hopes that the porting of technology will increase its user base from 150K to more than 8 million. The other reason for Nvidia and Ageia for porting the PhysX accelerator is to show that processor of today are still 20 to 40X slower than graphics cards and prove Intel's statement that “graphics cards might not be necessary in the future” wrong.
