Upcoming Crysis game is showing us how much reality-physics a next-generation game can have using only the power of processor alone. Then, what is the future of PhysX cards, a dedicated physics processor ?
Crysis's physics is totally powered by CPU only, no additional PhysX card is utilized but it has more physics-effects than games like Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six Vegas etc with a PhysX card.
PhysX owners and lovers, though very few, argue about the potential power of up-coming Unreal Engine 3 and games powered by it. Others argue why they should go for a PhysX card when games like Crysis can utilize the CPU alone to get better physics effect.
It has been a fairly long time since I have been on and had fun benching an AMD setup.
So looking at the huge interest amongst techies in present generation Phenom II processors, I guess spending some time with a Phenom II setup was inevitable.
Now I need a good platform to unleash all that latent potential.
In comes the Gigabyte MA790FXT-UD5P, muchos gracias Gigabyte.
So I have a Phenom II X4 965 BE and I am feeling nice - thank you very much AMD.
