    i ve read about how vantage benchmarks have significantly increased after installing Physx driver by nvidia., especially the cpu scores. Basically i wonder how this happenned as now that nvidia transferred the physics calculations from the cpu to the gpu, not 100% of the gpu's computational capabilities are used for graphics reproduction but some of these capabilities are reserved for physics calculations? Also why the cpu scores where massively increased? (http://www.legitreviews.com/article/731/14/)

    PS: is just a question that was floating in my mind for a long time and i finally decided to ask it. i like getting informed on the newer technologies!!!

    thnx
