NVIDIA Shows PhysX Comparison - I am not going to lie to you, I am not a fan of PhysX technology and really never have been. Hopefully that will all change soon. The best thing I have ever seen out of PhysX is the Cell Factor game it put together oh so long ago. The PhysX technology truly made the game and was not just treatment to make the game look better. That was a couple years ago. Even today we are still seeing PhysX being used for little more than window dressing; that being that the PhysX technology being applied really is not changing the gameplay but rather being used to hopefully help deepen the immersion qualtity with better eyecandy. Below is an NVIDIA supplied video that shows the new Mirror's Edge game with and without PhysX features applied, side by side. You be the judge.
