06-08-11, 06:00 AM
New GPU PhysX benchmark was revealed today ?? it is showcasing APEX integration and hardware accelerated PhysX support in upcoming online TPS game called Mars (http://www.qqsm.com/v5/), developed by Epic China in Shanghai. Mars is the first China developed online shooting title, based on Unreal Engine 3, and is supposed to offer player fresh PvP and PvE experience, vibrant graphics, customizable avatars and weapons.

Benchmark itself is showcasing a decent level of GPU PhysX effects, especially in comparison to other games like MKZ (http://physxinfo.com/news/2841/mkz-gpu-physx-benchmark-version-2-2/) and Jianxia 3 (http://physxinfo.com/news/2803/jx3-physx-and-cuda-benchmark/).

This includes: various particle effects ?? physically simulated debris from explosions, chunks from bullet impacts, sparks, etc
