The HD version finally works for me, but not the SD version...doesn't really seem all that interesting. The best they could manage as a demo was spread sheet calculations? Or am I missing something?

I am finding the same thing and would like to know if I have also missed something (which isnt all that unlikely for me)[IMG]http://www.hostimagehere.info/imgs/P/R.gif alt="."[/IMG]

It's doing stocks calculations faster than a CPU would. I don't see what's special either, but I'm sure there are a lot of people that do.

I don't know why anyone would expect something "else"... PhysX isn't the only alternate thing you can do with a GPU.
