Default Re: Physx Games Coming out?

All this arguing is great and all, hell, things were better when more fanboys were banned; I welcome those individuals to encourage another ban. Fact is though, Physx won't take off while it's a closed standard. Yes, the average CPU isn't ready for advanced physics processing but by the time all these stupid proprietary standards are left in the dust quad cores will be low end so physics might as well be done on the CPU since the GPU will still be the limiting factor for games in most cases.

Bring on the open standards already, if not, let people use their damn CPU to its potential, we'll have 8 cores on the desktop next year - hell, x86 server/workstations are already at 12 core.
