Re: I know nobody really knows but is a GTX480 going to be faster then a HD5970
You've said it yourself Rollo.
Physx takes a HUGE hit on your frames and you have you own a very strong rig to full enjoy the not so impressive effects.Physx is mainly for enthusiasts so it probably wont become popular.And mind you this is coming from someone who is using a Physx card and has played Batman and Cryostasis.
I'd personally prefer the huge performance hit taken with Physx be tranfered to making a game with better shader and texture effects.
