That just bad joke from the Nvidia. What are the benefits to purchase new generation card if you cant even enjoy the eye candy like they should be enjoyed? I think my old GTX 460 can run this game all maxed out if i don't use PhysX.
**** this industry.....

Sure you can, my buddy just built a new rig with a 2gb 670 in it, runs with everything on high including PhysX and I don't think it's ever gone below 40fps.

Turn the PhysX on more than Low and see exactly what it does before complaining that the game doesn't look great. PhysX makes all blood and acid goo into a physical entity that interacts with the environment, it splashes and pools up, it gets splatted by stuff lading in it, or an explosion near it. The particles it generates from bullet impacts etc are crazy good-looking..

PhysX on high looks great and makes the game that much cooler. I wish i could turn it up on my rig but I'm still running a 1gb 6870

Loving this game so far. Ready to get into co-op; think I've got it down enough to hold my own.

How does PhysX actually change the performance of this game (what stuff would I see if I did have a PhysX card)?

Running this on my sig rig with only a single HD6870 and it runs 60fps all the time with 1920x1080 16xAA max graphics no problems - Lv12 so far.

see my last post a few up from here. I turned PhysX on high and my 6870 chocked down to sub-10fps in combat, all the blood and particles flying around made it chug.. It looked amazing, was just unplayable.

No issues running it here. Even with ridiculous amounts of AA forced through inspector and physx on high it never wavers from 60FPS.

I know exactly what PhysX does to the game, that's not the point. Point is that Nvidia sells those cards using examples of "how good everything looks with PhysX" and you need at least GTX 660 to enjoy this eye candy the smoothest way. So it's kinda frustrating to see that my new GTX 670 cant handle the task.

There is some users saying that their game runs just perfectly and fps never goes under 60fps with GTX660, 670 or 680 and others are crying why the game doesn't run like it should. Are those others lying or is there again some random performance bugs? 40fps in not playable in fast shooter.

Maybe not in a shooter like CS or other competitive game, but in BL2? You're fooling yourself if you think 40 is unplayable.

Don't know what to tell you about your 670 not giving you playable rates but I've seen it first hand with a 670 running perfectly fine.

Maybe unplayable was little bit harsh word, but when fps dips at constant 60 to 40 and this happens in the middle of big chaos it's kinda feels like stuttering and that same smoothness is gone what you have in constant 60fps.

This is straight at Nvidias webpage:

At a bare minimum, a GeForce 8800 Series graphics card is required to enable PhysX, but realistically players will require a more recent card, such as the GTX 460. To attain the highest level of fidelity, however, Borderlands 2 players will require a GeForce GTX 660 or higher. Our performance chart below, generated using the game’s built-in benchmark, provides a general overview of how the game will perform with PhysX High enabled on a range of GPUs



http://www.geforce.co.uk/whats-new/articles/borderlands-2-physx/

So I'm just curious it's that true what other users says that their fps doesn't never go under 60. (I mean those who have GTX670 or GTX 680 and PhysiX at high). According what Nvidia says that's seems to be true, but I'm getting those dips near to 40fps and i have read that I'm not alone with this. Maybe gtx670 or gtx 680 just isn't powerful enough to run this game at Max settings at constant 60fps.
