Last Tuesday we showed physics benchmarking using an upcoming game title called Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason. The Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason PC Game TechDemo got some people talking and several of you asked questions on the forums and sent us e-mails asking for more information. Today, we answer those questions and provide you with some new benchmark numbers that include SLI and 3-way SLI results! Will adding a dedicated PhysX card to SLI help performance enough to catch up to 3-way SLI?

I actually expected the performance to level off at some point, but that obviously didn't happen this time around. If the Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason TechDemo benchmark utility proves to be an accurate reading for upcoming PhysX game titles it looks like dedicated PhysX cards and SLI will be the most cost effective way to get the performance you are looking for..."
