Physx is only available in 5 games, however CUDA is something you might want to look into.

PhysX software? needed and used in most TWIMTBP games, wont be slower on Radeon GPUs as they are CPU-bound

Hardware PhysX? I wouldnt say it's useless, but more like exaggerated.

sure, it adds eye-candy to games, but the amount of games that uses it is countable with my toes and fingers, the amount of games I've personally played that has hardware physX is a mere 2 (Mirror's Edge and Arkham Asylum),
outta like...50 games I've played since 2004 ?
Should have been 3 though..........STUPID PUBLISHERS NOT ALLOWING ARKHAM CITY SALE IN MY REGION,EVEN ON STEAM :fou: 


If you're planning to get a new GPU, I'd say just get the best price/performance within your budget. PhysX, CUDA, APP, arent exactly what most people even need......but is what companies usually use to push their products.


Ouch regioning, that's harsh, it's at this point I'd just like to say thank you to all the stupid dumb ass politicians for keeping video games under the radar where I'm from.
