Looks cool, and gives a significant performance gain during online play:

Hmmm, I'd be rather skeptical.

So its CPU, GPU, PPU, NPU now?

That looks interesting, but I wouldn't rush into it until they test it on completely identical systems.

Oh yeah, I remember that thing. Sounds cool...let's hope it's not all hype like the PhysX. How much is it anyhow?

Not worth $280 in my opinion. Unless you are really hard core...

Wow...almost as ridiculous as the Ageia PhysX. I guess the performance increase is pretty good, but definately NOT worth $280. It's pretty cool though, especially the large 'K'.
