Seperate processing units for physics i think will be something to look fordward to in the future however seperate cards i dont think will be part of it, you know if you could modify the driver and had a dual core CPU you could use the extra core to run the physx the ageia system runs perfectly well standalone WITHOUT the card.

The obvious solution is as you said, integrate it with the Graphics chip. Tho i guess theyll start calling them gaming chips or something.

Anyway, the Xbox 360 has three CPUs, each dedicated to a different task (I wonder if they share a cache), It's really nice how efficient they work, considering how low their clock speeds are.
Heeeey, will this replace my video card completely? If I had an SLi setup, would I be able to do a GPU and a PPU? Or would the SLi setup on its own be more efficient? (Or Crossfire instead of SLi).
And it says that there will be PCI and PCI-e versions (as so the Wikipedia entry tells anyhow), will the PCI version suffer horribly due to the fact that the PCI bus rate is 33MHz shared across all of the slots? D:

Oh yes, my bad, three cores, not three CPUs.
