UT3 + Ageia "PhysX" . Does Crysis have it too?

    It's not a GPU/CPU hybrid, no -- but they're steps in that direction.

    That point was "Here's the exit" not "We're here!" :)

    Ok, all your info was helpful, thanks. I'll remember to invest in the most latest video card the next time I decide to upgrade. It seems that upgrading to the "just under the best latest video card" isn't such a good idea after all.

    I patched Crysis, got Riva Tuner (overclocked my core/memory speed on the GPU by +50/+50), got ClockGen (overclocked my CPU speed by 200 mhz) and I can run the game on full details except Object Quality (which for some reason is the same as Draw Distance... CryTek Inc. apparently didn't want to create a separate setting for Draw Distance). It seems that setting Object Quality from Medium to Low gives me a +40 fps increase. (I swear, not joking, if anyone wants to see, I can post the GPUBenchmark.exe and CPUBenchmark.exe results from Crysis)

    Only geeks want that.
    The rest of us prefer a system with minimum risk of incompatibilities and that's easy to use.

    Besides ... Epic had announced several physx-capable third party components (Novodex being one of them).
    The only real advantage that Ageia had/has is that it was the only one with dedicated hardware-support.
