Default Re: Ghostbusters Physics Video

You are right, but this game won't have dynamic fluids, so the CPU will be enough for what we have seen on the videos.

Why nVidia PhysX? I prefer to have a graphics card (or two) 100% dedicated to graphics and my eight CPU threads busy at 80-90% each one than having 1 CPU core at 80% and 7 idle threads, while the GPU is suffering doing all the work.

Neither the GPU.

The CPU is constructed for general purpose tasks, while the GPU 'should' have been constructed for a specialized graphics processing.
