Borderlands 2 PhysX on an AMD card.
Recently, yesterday, discovered that you can play BL2 with PhysX on an AMD card. The PhysX is offloaded to the CPU. I am currently playing with PhysX on high. Makes the game much better graphically. Can't play it without it now.

Hmm wonder if there are some bench comparison between the 2.

I'm sure there is. From my own expierence, running Fraps in the same area, FPS stays about the same. Only when when PhysX gets really intense does the FPS drop, but only by about 4-5.
Edit: I'm guessing the more powerful/cores your CPU has, the performance hit is less.

You have an X6 too for that extra grunt.
Change in FPS up or down?
Without Physx, what CPU% are you at?
With Physx, what CPU% are you at?

FPS drops about 4-5 in intense PhysX situations. Don't know the % on CPU use yet.

Yup, that would do it.

Not really a viable option based on those.

Me want... Stupid AMD GPU
It looks really great but will likely never be widely adopted by developers if it only works for ~45% of the audience. OpenCL needs better tooling support...

Those singularity grenades + debris = tornade of crap flying around.
I found it a bit annoying while using phaselock as it sometimes blocks your view of the crit locations.
