umeng2002 Yeah, as paulerxx said, I used my old GTX 260 Core 216 card with those two titles and I really liked it... but after that... I always found PhysX particles and such a waste and too much of a performance hog.

I even tried using the GTX 260 as a PhysX card with my GTX 580, and the results were inconsistent like SLI. Sometimes it was faster with two cards, sometimes it disrupted the frame pacing, sometimes it was just slower.

But now, I don't think any one uses it for GPU accelerated physics, in games at least.

Now, it seems, it's just an SDK/ API for physics like Havok...

Imouto In my experience, PhysX always been glaringly and unnecessarily overboard.

For example in Borderlands 2 if you had 2 sirens in party you had to turn it off because of the cluster**** of trash flying around that didn't let you see what the hell was going on.

Physics simulation dovetails with AI, robotics and computer vision, self-driving vehicles, and high-performance computing.

Yep. Used a GTX 260 to play those two with physx.

yeah, lets see what AMD thinks of this, I think would be good if they do

though it's been in TW3 DLCs and fallout4, yeah, that was the last time NV actively marketed physx in a game.
Nice one ! I played a ton of BL2 on Win/MAC with physx and it was great. I then switched to SteamOS, therefore BL2 without physx and I was like, WHAT ? Where have the visual gone ???
On this game, Physx was really THE visuals.

It's better and bigger contribution than any of the broken junk other hardware companies have churned out and abandoned since it's just open source.
