I can think of several scenarios where that little item can add so much to a game.
Fluid volume simulations are an important aspect of DX11, this also covers smoke for example. I guess Cryostasis was one of the first games that used it excessively (which made it almost unplayable on most systems, even with dedicated PhysX hardware). Fermi should perform much better, so I'm really looking forward to these benchmarks.
