Definitely has been posted before, but pretty awesome to see anyways. I hope it can at least be half as decent as the first one, which was pretty amazing. Took me totally by surprise as well. I did not expect such a polished game.

Truly amazing Physx, but even with my new card I bet I will turn it off for more frames. It's an SLI-only thing, in my experience.

Though I wonder how Mirror's Edge runs on a single 480 with Physx on.

I find that hard to believe, as I got drops to the 20s in heavy Physx areas on my GTX 275. Perhaps you didn't max the other settings?

I played it on a 8800GTX and it didnt drop below 30s. You need to make sure to delete the old physx dll in the ME folder so that the game is using the one that comes with the videocard driver.

Well I was playing at 1200 res with 4xMSAA, and I wasn't lowering either or those for Physx. Plus I was getting 60fps without it.

I played it some time ago but I think it was 1280x800 4xMSAA an 8af. It never did below 30+.
I turned it of anyway for performance. (to gain 60vsync fps)
