More information at: Pocket-lint.co.uk, 1/2007 AGEIA PhysX PPU graphics card The concept of a dedicated add-on card just for gamers really isn’t anything new. Heck, who didn’t go out and buy a dedicated graphics accelerator to get the best out of Quake and similar games 10 years ago, just as soon as they had the available cash? The point is, if you want to get the best out of a game visually speaking then you need to throw all the graphics processing power you can get your hands on at it.

Information about the category

The PCI bus was the previous standard for all add-on card in PCs. PCI stands for Peripheral Component Interconnect, the standard ws developed in 1993 by Intel to allow users to change and upgrade PC components with other standard models. PCI replaced the ISA bus, which was a 16bit bus. PCI offered faster speeds and thus allowed 3D graphics cards to be fully exploited for the first time. 3D graphics demand a lot of data to successfully recreate full 3D worlds on the computer screen and as resolutions were getting also getting higher the amount of information being sent between hard drive, processor, RAM and graphics card was also increasing rapidly. Without a dedicated graphics card games could only manage paltry frame rates or would not run at all. The PCI bus was a great stride forward for IBM compatible computers but has sadly been superseded by the much faster AGP and PCI-E buses, still, ten years at the top wasn't bad.
