It seems that owners of AGEIA PhysX Processors are out of luck. A user by the name of 666 from PhysXInfo received the following email from Nvidia:

"The current PhysX driver unfortunately does not support Aegia PPU hardware which you're already aware. Support for Aegia PPU ended after the 8.xx.xx driver but like you we've receive other users asking to include support in current PhysX releases. There are discussions to release a stand-along PhysX driver that will support Aegia PPU but that is still in discussion and I'm unable to get any confirmation or schedule. I can certainly update you if this changes or you can check back with us in a couple of months. Unfortunately we don't know anymore at this point."

Yeah, can say the same about NF3. They bought ULi and all those beautiful cheap designs went into a trashcan plus no support for older chips - and believe me - there is NO problem with NF3 running AGP card both with 2 or 4 core CPU (alivedual-esata2) since it runs on both XP and XP x64 flawlessly.

I can't say I don't blame them on this one. I got rid of my Ageia PhysX card 2 years ago and even then it had trouble handling games like UT3
