Ageia Plans Multi PPU Cards

Ageia may be planning to allow end-users to install more than one PhysX accelerators in one system. Recently released drivers by Ageia implement a revamped version of technology called hardware scene manager (HSM) that now uses so-called “compartments”, which allows “utilization of multiple PhysX cards in future versions”. Theoretically, Ageia’s future drivers should be able to “split” the scene into multiple three-dimensional “compartments” assigning a dedicated PPU for each. It is highly likely that Ageia will have to release a PCI Express version of its PPU first and only then tout multi-PPU environments.
