ASUS is proud to introduce the PhysX P1 card, which adopted Ageia’s™ all-new PhysX™
Processing Unit (PPU) to take gamers to a completely new level of video realism.
Currently, only two companies have the capability to develop PPU cards, and ASUS
is one of the pioneers. ASUS will begin distributing this exciting new product
this month. The PhysX P1 card is now available worldwide. ASUS Physx P1 card is coming to
the Singapore shores very soon with a suggested retail price of S$ 499. This card
is bundled together with the Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter game.

Asus Technology Pte Ltd (ASUS), a leading provider of graphics solutions is
proud to introduce the PhysX P1 card, which adopted Ageia’s™ all-new PhysX™
Processing Unit (PPU) to take gamers to a completely new level of video realism.
Currently, only two companies have the capability to develop PPU cards, and ASUS
is one of the pioneers. ASUS will begin distributing this exciting new product
this month.

In a gaming system, the CPU (Central Processing Unit) drives game AI and logic,
while the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) delivers beautiful three-dimensional
visual representation. The PPU takes gaming to the next level with
never-seen-before dynamic motion and interaction.

By bringing the laws of physics into video performance, systems with the PhysX
P1 card can now offer enhanced realism for explosions, flying debris, liquid
flows, water splashes and movements influenced by wind. No two motions will be
the same, which means no more canned animations and predetermined interaction.

“The PhysX P1 card is first to leverage the PhysX core that optimized
specifically for dynamic large-scale, physics processing,” said Kent Chien,
Director of ASUS graphics and multimedia business. “This new video technology
accelerates real-time physical motion and interaction at a scale far beyond
those of CPUs and GPUs.”

With the list of growing PhysX accelerated games poised to hit the stores this
year, players need to equip themselves with the most advanced graphics
technology to experience gaming realism that not only looks real but acts and
feels real as well.

The PhysX P1 card is now available worldwide.
