    Dynamic Physical Motion and Game Play Interaction

    MIAMI - March 22, 2006 - Alienware -- the leading manufacturer of high-performance
    desktop, notebook, media center, server and professional systems -- is now featuring
    the highly innovative new AGEIA PhysX Processor on select Alienware desktop systems,
    including Area-51 7500, Aurora 7500, and ALX systems. A revolutionary advancement
    in gameplay dynamics, the AGEIA PhysX Processor is the first and only physics
    processor to power an entirely new game experience of pervasive real-time physical
    motion and interaction.

    The AGEIA PhysX Accelerator dramatically improves gameplay dynamics, powering
    a level of pervasive motion and interaction never before experienced, while maintaining
    blazing-fast frame rates. Now, huge numbers of objects are capable of interacting
    with every other object in an environment, and the corresponding reactions mimic
    the real world with astounding accuracy. With hardware-accelerated physics,
    games can now feature cause-and-effect motion and interaction on a massive scale
    so that fluids ooze and flow and explosions scatter debris of tens of thousands
    of pieces, each of which can cause collateral damage.

    "Opening up a totally new category in gaming innovation, the PhysX Accelerator
    is the critical hardware element required for the next great leap in gameplay
    - pervasive optimized game physics," said Mark Vena, Vice President of Marketing
    at Alienware. "Alienware systems loaded with PhysX processors, powerful CPUs
    and graphics processors have the three required hardware elements to electrify
    the gaming experience gamers have come to rely on from Alienware."

    "Alienware leads the way in bringing the most powerful systems that drive the
    best game experiences to the gaming public," said Manju Hegde, CEO of AGEIA
    "Now with the addition of the AGEIA PhysX accelerator in its lineup, Alienware
    is pushing the envelope again with the first-ever dedicated physics accelerator,
    to change the face of gaming by blurring the line between virtual worlds and
    reality."
