Anyway this article says it better than I can.
The Inevitable Bleak Outcome of NVIDIA's CUDA + PhysX Strategy
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
There is another on going pool at TechPowerUp
about buying decision and it doesn't even address the question about the need for buying a "dedicated PhysX processor". I think if it was pointed out the numbers would be even lower.
There are many more Titles that use Havok Products
and more Upcoming Releases
And lastly it looks like AMD and Intel will unite against NVIDIA PhysX
And yet strangely, not a single game developed with Havok has anywhere near the eye candy level PhysX enabled games have. GRAW2, Cryostasis, Mirrors Edge so far have shown.
But to that end, PhysX probably wont live much longer if Nvidia can't get another Graphics chip to support it, but CUDA will live on much longer. The article is a bit off on the Cuda thing, its here and its here to stay. Major Developers are already using it.
