Benchmark has only "PhysX Low" settings available, so no Jetpack smoke and Disintegrator particles

Another crap game with Physx bolted on. Like the last batch of Physx games this one isnt worth a ****. I wish theyd give up and just use the CPU for physics already. Stop bolting physx onto garbage games.

Any examples of garbage games?

The three sorta popular physx games that come to mind are:

Cryostasis
Mirror's Edge
Batman

and I thought they are pretty good.

Ehhh, don't really like it, you can only set the Physx on low, and it didn't run very well.

Mirror's Edge and Batman were the only good ones. But it wasn't because of Physx.

Cryostasis was awful.
Dark Void sucks.
Darkest of Days
Velvet Assassin

I could go on but off the top of my head...

My point is they just stick it on as an afterthought, its not neccessary and its only smoke and particles nothing that absolutely NEEDS to be there. I held on to my second NV gpu for awhile thinking Physx was gonna matter. Its not and it never will. Oh, they will keep trying. The only AAA title with physx was Batman and if that didn't do it my list of awful games surely won't.

They aren't integrating it into AAA titles, they are strapping it onto these garbage games that suck regardless of them having physx or not. In most cases you are trading performance for a few puffs of smoke and particles on explosions. Big Deal.
