PhysX High Option: PhysX particles can now be set to High in the Video
Settings menu. High (NVIDIA Only) Option will be grayed out if your
computer does not meet required specifications.

I know a lot of AMD users who have been able to use PhysX High in Borderlands, and they’d get both the debris, liquid and cloth effects just fine.

Certain features don’t work because they are Nvidia GPU ONLY even though they could run on the CPU.

Arguing that the consoles are leveraging the CPU so they get a pass to use it isn’t really valid when the same can be done on any PC if nV allowed it.

It’s optimized for whatever CPU is in there. PhysX has been available on the Xbox 360 and PS3 for a while, although I am not sure how heavily it was used.
