Any benefit to a physX dedicated GPu?

So I have a 2080Ti, and I was wondering if there was any performance benefit to using something like a 1650 as a dedicated PhysX card.

What do you all think?

Zero. PhysX is dead only a hand full of games you can count on 1 hand that uses it and was never worth a dedicated card.

Depends on the game. I have a 1060 because I do some extra gpu stuff its great to improve min frame times as a physx card in Borderlands 2/TPS but as far as I know basically every game outside of that and maybe one other will give no benefit. Plus a 1650 will likely actually cause a performance hit so you would need a better card. Really depends on the games you play.


EDIT: Games you play being like basically only 2 that I know of that get a benefit of maybe 20fps super ultra best case senario, plus you would need a better card than a 1650.
