TressFX is open source and it uses the DirectCompute API on top of that. I don't really know how can you compare them but your usual bias.
On noes, you have me on ignore? Is it because you have issues with the truth?
TressFX was "open source" because it was actually closed source for its first 4 years until AMD rebranded it as PureHair with the help square enix. Up until that point, every time amd said it was open source, was a big fat lie. TressFX launch was in 2013, and its code was released in 2017.
When tomb raider and its following game came out, tressfx source was not released. It was only released a year later in 2017 when nvidia released more source code of their gameworks libraries, and AMD were left with their stick in their hand realising nvidia are going to beat them in their own game, again.
But you will ignore it, because closing your ears and yelling "lalalala", is going to make the truth disappear...

Also thank you, I may dual boot 7 and 10 just so I can run Borderlands 2 for another play though. The PhysX effects really make all the elemental stuff a lot more fun. Are you sure it has nothing to do with Pascal plus 10? Becasue I seem to recall some using 10 and it running just fine. It's hard to really know what's what when you're digging though Steam forums becasue much of their testing and understanding is pretty limited, it's not uncommon to see some of the dumbest posts related to hardware over there.
Nvidia also have their own issues.
But yes, borderlands 2 specifically with pascal and windows 10 was an issue. They did not update the physx engine which runs very slow specifically in windows 10, and they use that engine internally, so even if you updated physx libraries on your machine which you install through nvidia drivers, it still runs older versions.
There used to be a Gearbox response, saying that borderlands 2 isn't officially support windows 10. Can't find it now, but there is that.
They abandoned supporting that game once the next game came out.
