Yes. I have a 9600 GSO as a physx card and a gtx260 216 as my primary display card. It improved my batman frame rates by 43% (mimimum went from 23 to 33 fps on the benchmark).

Were you benching with physx on the whole time? Obviously min fps will be low when running physx without a dedicated card. I fail to see how adding a dedicated physx card will improve minimum frame rates with physx off.

You should have benched with physx off without the dedicated card, measured fps. Then bench with physx on with the dedicated card, measured fps.

Cryostasis is good if you like story and atmosphere.

This game comes out on 3/16. I wonder if Fermi will be out then also since it has PhysX. Is it CPU or GPU PhysX though?

Neither of those cards are DX11 compatible and Batman isn't DX11, which is what he's asking about. I'm curious too though.

In your that situation it's still two DX10 cards. I'm wondering if you can run a DX11 game with a DX11 primary card and a secondary phsyx processing DX10 card.
