Physx with an AMD card

What's the best way to get physx while having an AMD card? Is the only course of action to run a lower tier nvidia card primarily to render physx?

What do you think?

    Nvidia disables PhysX processing on their GPUs if an AMD GPU is detected in the system. So you're better off leaving it to the CPU.

    what he said. once upon a time you could run a nvidia physx card on a system with a primary ati/amd gpu. nvidia has since squished that.
  3. 2 options

    1. CPU Physx ..... not so great
    2. Add Nvidia GPU for Physx

    More info bellow. Kind of an older article but the concept is still the same, to my knowledge.

  4. for what games. some ini files can be edited to enable physx/ look it up.

    kinda odd now that physx will work on the new ps2...........
  5. It is possible to use a NVidia physx card but it involves a driver hack.
