If you haven’t played Mafia II demo, and still wondering what are differences between APEX PhysX effects setting, we have prepared a small video, showcasing several APEX settings using built-in benchmark.
Update: Tweaking PhysX in Mafia II – huge fps increase without noticable difference.
Update #2: comparison PhysX videos for final version, covering APEX Clothing and APEX Particles modules usage in details.
As you may notice, when APEX is set to “High” – a lot of dynamic particles (impact debris, chunks from explosions, smoke) are added, and simulated clothing for characters as well. Detailed effects description is available here.
Unfortunately, this one is not even close our usual detailed comparison videos, so – our apologies.
Full scale APEX Effects comparison is planned only after Mafia II release.
