Easy, a single GTX 280 increases the 3DMark score of a test PC from 12,826 to 42,436 thanks to PhysX.
 
The effect doesnt improve with SLI or tri-SLI as PhysX is only designed to work with a single card so far... but with results like this, who needs SLI?

So if I understand this correctly, a synthetic test, whose criteria for scoring was decided upon primarily by NVidia, now shows that their flagship card is the most amazing thing ever, based on compliance with a software version of a physics engine just about nothing currently uses... LOL

I beleive the mark was only the CPU score the Graphics is still a stiffle 12k----
 
Copied from tomshardware:
CPU Test 2 - Crash’n’Burn Physics discipline were impressive. So, how much more physics horsepower does the GPU deliver in physics than the CPU?
Our Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 clocked at 3802 MHz delivered a CPU score of 15,005, which jumped to 42,436 using a single GTX 280 card. With two GTX 280 boards, we got 42,374 CPU marks, and three GTX 280 boards resulted in a CPU score of 41,387.  End copy.
 
Not worth it yet when the devs finally decide to start putting Physx in the games the next best thing from Both camps will be out.  And By then Havok will be optimised for ATI most likely the war continues it seems.  In terms of graphics yes nice increases but not worth it to me.  Besides price will prob drop when the 4870X2 comes in cheaper.  So if you want it wait for the drop here in like 2 weeks.  Just my 2 cents
