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.Read more: Interview: Future of Ageia PhysX cards
