Would be great if more games used it, Too bad Force Unleashed isn't coming out to PC otherwise we might have seen some crazy stormtroopers vs flying objects physic scenes

Neat!...shame I don't really play physx enabled games...

Question - Does the same apply with the dedicated physx card?

It would be nice to see them use like a 8800 GTS or something, and then a 8400 GS and have the GS used for physics, letting the GTS do the graphical work. A much lower cost physx card in a way.

Oh nice find.
Seems the PPU Card is still worth the Cash (at least for UT3 gamers like me).
I did expect the 9800GTX to score better...


[EDIT]
One thing this article clearly shows is that 3D Mark is a blender again.
PhysX on GPU will Score great on the CPU-Benchmarkt.
While it sucks in Games as the Card has to do some Graphics besides the PhysX.
PPU Card is more useful in Games than in Vantage...
