It's a disservice and a lie to make a statement like the one I responded to earlier. PhysX has great potential, but it will never increase FPS or "response" in a game. If you have the hardware to run it without noticing the FPS drop, it looks great, but you will always see a drop in FPS. Always, no matter how it's implemented.
More eye candy always requires more hardware to maintain FPS. I don't care where the hardware is added. (CPU/GPU)
Yeah, but of you has a dedicated GPU for physics, then the FPS can stay more or less the same.
Why did I say that...
