    The GPU Physx acceleration is faster then the ageia PPU card

    The Ageia ppu only have like 128mb onboard, and also don't have shaders like nvidia 8, 9, and GTX series do. They had to change most of the coding for it, but it's surprising that your ppu card is out performing the nvidia cards, but at the same time not surprising. Surprising, because it shouldn't. But not surprising, because physx was originally written and created for these cards.

    So for asking people if they use physx, I use it. Maybe you don't have any performance increase because your machine is below average. Just because you meet system requirements for it, doesn't mean it's gonna run like it's recommended. :D

    I'd like to see some benchmarks of someone claiming their Ageia PPU is outperforming GPU PhysX. I'd also like to know how they overclocked their PPU because I don't see how that's possible.

    They are already. A good majority of games are optimized for nvidia cards.

    You don't need an Nvidia card to run PhysX. PhysX runs on the CPU unless the developers choose to implement GPU acceleration.
