Now I am curious to what everyone who has there own ppu would say to this and I am going off of when I didn't have a good enough video card to handle the games that use both gpu and ppu physx.

out of what I have played

1. Mirror's Edge
2. Batman Arkham Asylum
3. Switchball
4. Unreal tournament 3
5. Shadowgrounds Survivor



Games that I noticed it help with cpu as well were:
Gears of War
Mass Effect
Rainbow Six Vegas

I think we could do a gpu based one later on.

Well, I won't speak about early GPU PhysX games (Mirror's Edge, Sacred - never tried those on Ageia card), but my top 5 of PPU titles is:

1) GRAW 2 (diverse and polished PhysX effects, Ageia Island was nice - unfortunately, some levels were lagging on PPU)
2) Cellfactor: Combat Training (lots, lots of destructible objects, blood simulated with fluids - looks great even today)
3) Infernal (decent game with a nice particle and fluid effects)
4) Warmonger (in Ageia time, I've even participated in closed beta test)
5) Bet on Soldier (has decent effects for weapons like flamethrower and acid grenades)

One thing I noticed for the most part when I originally had my ppu before nvidia got a hold of everything was I really wasn't using the physx card to its full potential. Most games I had just helped the CPU out on calculations. Those are the only five games I've played that I used that even have ppu hardware added effects.

Mirror's Edge plays nice on the ppu. Very little problems and helped with frame rate quite a bit.
Batman Runs, its a bit laggy with the physx turned on at times but great game.(Plays so much better on the gpu physx)
Switchball is a really fun game and the fluid levels are neat especially when I first saw it.
Unreal tournament I noticed helped framerate plus the added physx levels are cool.
Shadowgrounds Survivor I didn't play that much but I remember having fun and seeing some interesting physx effects. I need to get that game back.

It was a nice feature GPU PhysX is not capable of, btw
Too bad effect was too subtle.

I've already asked Zogrim, but I would really appreciate seeing those bonus levels. They seem to not exist on YouTube.

Sure AquaGeneral, I will get something up in a few weeks, still need to get my ppu working on my modern rig but once I get that I will.

It will be a little bit because I left my physx card at my parents and I live 4 hours aways but I plan on heading there in about 2 weeks.

Cellfactor Revolution is definitely my number 1 favorite physX game of all time, especially in LAN games!

Wheeeee!

Very nice! Thank you very much for uploading the video. How many more special PhysX PPU levels are there?

I believe 5 but for sure at least 4. I playing through it again right now, so I don't remember exactly, and won't know for sure till im further along.

Oh and btw thanks to mohawkade for how to get the ppu to work with modern physx drivers. It wouldn't have been possible without that guide.

I'm actually half tempted to make a video sometime soon about the top PhysX games of all time!
