Definitely has been posted before, but pretty awesome to see anyways. I hope it can at least be half as decent as the first one, which was pretty amazing. Took me totally by surprise as well. I did not expect such a polished game.

First one is one of best games ever made. Waiting for this one but not hyping at all

Truly amazing Physx, but even with my new card I bet I will turn it off for more frames. It's an SLI-only thing, in my experience.

Though I wonder how Mirror's Edge runs on a single 480 with Physx on.

Mirorrs edge works on my single 8800 with physx. and fps arent dropping lower than 30-40 with maximum settings

But after ME they got the idea "hey we need to fukedup performance so you'll buy more expensive card"

I find that hard to believe, as I got drops to the 20s in heavy Physx areas on my GTX 275. Perhaps you didn't max the other settings?

I played it on a 8800GTX and it didnt drop below 30s. You need to make sure to delete the old physx dll in the ME folder so that the game is using the one that comes with the videocard driver.

+1 played it on 8800GT with physx, 1680x1050 but with no AA, after turning on AA + physix it was stuttering

Well I was playing at 1200 res with 4xMSAA, and I wasn't lowering either or those for Physx. Plus I was getting 60fps without it.

I played it some time ago but I think it was 1280x800 4xMSAA an 8af. It never did below 30+.
I turned it of anyway for performance. (to gain 60vsync fps)

Right, same here then. I didn't mean I couldn't run Mirror's Edge with Physx, I just meant for performance and max settings otherwise I turned it off. More AA and 60fps was better for me than the Physx effects.

And I will likely do the same with Mafia 2.
