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.
So, to stop this argument, we asked this same question to both Ageia and Crytek.
