Hey all, I just ran the Elemental demo and it left me with some questions, and I apologize if I may sound like an idiot asking this, but I’m just intrigued.
The Elemental demo is absolutely full of GPU particles, with sparks flying around and slabs of stone being shattered. All of this ran perfectly fine (40-60 FPS average) on my system that runs a dinky R9 270X. I thought it may just be running on my CPU, but a CPU can’t possibly run all these physics effects at such a great speed. Afterall, Mirror’s Edge and Borderlands almost crashed my PC trying to simulate the tiniest of PhysX particle effects.
So my question is, has Epic Games figured out how to run PhysX, or some form of it, on AMD systems?
