10-04-12, 06:30 AM
Borderlands 2 (http://physxinfo.com/data/vreview_border2.php) is latest and one of the best GPU PhysX titles so far, but what system do you need to handle it efficiently ?

In following article we‚??ll try to gather all reliable PhysX benchmarks and tests, published on the web, to determine the GPU and CPU performance patterns of this title.

One of the first articles with PhysX performance comparison, includes wide range of NVIDIA GPUs tested. At the same time, scene, choosen for benchmark, is too simplistic and does not fully represent load during actual gameplay.

Our attempt to compare CPU and GPU performance of PhysX effects, using single system (GTX 580 GPU and i7 2600K CPU) but multiple testing scenes, including built-in benchmark.

In this article, several firefights scenes from the game are used to determine how GTX 680, GTX 650 and overclocked i5 3570K CPU can handle the PhysX effects.

Traditionally, HardOCP directly compares performance of AMD cards (with PhysX set to Low) and NVIDIA GPUs (with PhysX set to High). Tested GPUs include GTX 680 ‚?? GTX 660 from NVIDIA side and HD 7970 ‚?? HD 7870 from AMD.

Just as the title says, authors of this article are trying to compare PhysX performance of GTX 680 and HD 7970 (actually, a CPU) in integrated benchmark.

‚?? We‚??ll update this post as more articles emerge ‚??
