It is simple.. if you have an NVidia GFX card from the GTS 8600 or newer series with a minimum of 512 MB Gddr2 or higher, then the NVidia card has a built in Physx Processor.
STO installs the Physx Software from when the game was written (make sure to update your physx software AFTER STO is installed).
The software enables people to let their CPU process Physx reguardless of Vid Card, however those using the NVidia Cards I stated will have the Physx offloaded from the CPU to the GPU Physx co-processor, thus causing less load on the system CPU.
