But of course lets not forget the other fact that PhysX is only a best a 10% booster in fps & for more "eye candy" type of affects that 1 top end card from either company can do anyways. Again tests done by various other major review sites showed this that there was little to no advantage of having it. Why do ya think the original cards didn't sell well ...

Btw, gj on the lil post ineedaname
Thx man.

Yea its true its mainly for the extra EYE candy. The prob with this game though is you can't turn off physx, only set it to low. I'll do a second test and post up some more results.

The Physx debate returns.

I truly wished physx enable the player to take advantage of those add effects instead of just eye candy.

Just like in Batman AA all those smoke/fog was just there take up resources instead of been useful in a stealth game.


For those that are interested on some screenplay/shot in Alice.

wow fanboys accusing every1 of being a fanboy (im actually posting from a computer with ATI graphics) my point was no1 will ever turn on physx on an ATI/AMD card without a dedicated physx card cause no matter what card/game you are playing, you will get unplayable FPS...thus no 1 would turn physx on in that scenario and the comparison would be moot!
