    ageia PhysX processor arrived today... is it overclockable?

    Well, it arrived, and it has a huge die!





    Apparently, you will even be able to overclock them!


    Does anyone know who manufactures the PPU for ageia? I thought TSMC did

    Anyway, here is the card in all of its glory...






    Here are some screen shots:

    Nice, run some 3D.

    From what I was told, futuremark may already have support for ageia api with current PCMark build.

    Let us know if it increases score in the physics tests.

    nice! I didn't realize these were coming out so soon, just curious but do you know of a list of games that will be supporting these that are coming out soon? Lmao, we are already trying to overclock it and we don't even know if anything supports it yet..... I love Xtreme Systems Good luck man, let us know your results!

    Thy a physics demo and stress it until the PPU starts to lag :P

    Since Ageia is a small company, it may be why they produce those large die chips, which is probably why these cards are expensive.

    I too look very forward to seeing if it runs the cpu tests in 06.

    I am very curious too, how is the stock fan? Is it very loud? Does it spin fast?

    I am curious already as to how an aftermarket cooler will do on this, that is if it even gets hot enough to warrant that. I have no clue myself. If the stock cooler is loud and whiney I will probably get a new fan for it anyhow as long as we know what fits. I remember seeing a thermaltake fan of some sort on the older Asus prototypes. At the very least I will change the thermal paste on this.

    this is XTREME systems... nah, i figured since i got the 128mb version, i am going to need some extra speed to hang with the 256mb version.

    I've actually had this sitting at my friends house since the end of march... i didnt think it was a big deal I had it lol


    anyway-- teaser




    I just did a fresh install on my test rig, so i am downloading 3D06 now



    heh, you can throw a ball into the cubes, and watch the cubes fall... sorta cool i guess

    Atleast I know it works
