Example: Take a game FPS w/o PhysX enabled and then a game FPS w/ PhysX enabled. Whether you're running it on the CPU or GPU doesn't matter. You're not going to get better performance on the machine running PhysX than on the machine that's not running it (assuming all hardware is equal.)
But the context was defined with this example: If one uses GPU PhysX compared to CPU PhysX -- one gains FPS and a far cry from saying "never" gain FPS in a blanket or absolute form. I understand your point but don't agree in absolutes or blanket forms.

Good to see you post Xion and hope things are going well for ya.
