It's one of the grey areas regarding the issue to say the least.
What I meant is that the GPU is limiting the FPS in that benchmark, not the CPU. A dedicated PhysX processor is always going to be limited by the GPU, not the other way around. You'd have to use a benchmark like fluidmark to properly compare the performance between the Ageia PPU, 9600 and 9800.
