Re: I have seen the future....
You made some good points, Cap'n. I do understand the distinction that you're making. I guess my stance is that I just don't see a big enough difference in PhysX yet to make such a big deal about it. I think that it has potential--just comes up short at the moment.
It's definitely a key component of immersion that needs to be better explored. I just don't know if that can happen as fast as we'd like it to as long as Nvidia keeps it proprietary. Developers aren't going to invest nearly as much time in it as they would if everyone would be able to benefit from it.
Frankly, I'm surprised by the graphs that razor showed in that there are that many titles that support it. But again, we don't know how many of those are GPU-based and how many are CPU-based.
