A dedicated AI processor?

We already have sound cards, video cards, and Ageia's PhysX processor. As if there weren't enough to buy, a company called AIseek is promoting the Intia, a processor devoted entirely to AI subroutines. In theory the chip should accelerate pathfinding some 100 to 200 times, enabling not only increased accuracy but the ability to respond dynamically to changing terrain. The company also promises pixel-perfect line-of-sight calculations. Regardless, don't look for any games with Intia support in the near future; the most AIseek has to show is a series of videos with simulated gameplay conditions.
