    Is PhysX even relevant anymore?

    With stronger CPU, GPUs and the advance of programming, is PhysX even really a selling point? I've owned and played games with PhyX and with the new cards and cpu, there is really no difference with it turned on or off. I do not count PhysX specific benchmarks and demos, just retail games.
