The GeForce Website has details on the PhysX-enhanced edition of Hawken, saying this is currently available in the free-to-play mech game to owners of appropriate NVIDIA hardware. They offer this trailer to show off what this looks like.

I agree it's distracting in multiplayer, but in single player?

It looks so much better. Yeah, heavy hand here, but it's pretty shocking for me to go from playing Borderlands 2 with a buddy on my Xbox to watching a YouTube video from a guy with PhysX. Yeah, the game looks much better on the PC, anyway, but PhysX is the most noticeable difference.

PhysX is nothing that can't also be done also on AMD hardware...

Too bad people dont write software to support that statement. From cracking passwords to encoding video, physX is far superior to AMD's version of it.

@ Slick

The APEX turbulence effects look unrealistic and distracting, but the debris effect looks pretty cool, IMO. Yeah, probably not the best to have ton of extra shit on the screen during a MP game though. But I don't get your hate for the tech in general. Why do you think it looks so bad, and how could it be better?

It's frustrating not to have a single player game to play through either Hawken or Mechwarrior where you could turn all this shit on and enjoy it.

so only nVidia cards generate lots of useless junk on my screen which lowers my line of sight towards enemies? sign me up!

PhysX could have been great, always wanted to buy one when they were a hardware card...

Nvidia can suck a tail pipe for how they've butchered this technology, and truth be told any modern ATI card can run physx just fine, you turn it on and off in the Unreal3 engine.ini config, has nothing to do with hardware.
