question about physx cards Tags: Graphics Cards Physx Crysis Graphics Product Last response: April 21, 2007 7:35 AM in Graphics & Displays Share laytons April 20, 2007 11:57:29 PM are the physx cards worth it as an investment like if crysis supports it.or for any reason because the price has drooped quite a bit. More about : question physx cards blade85 April 20, 2007 11:59:18 PM i still dont think they are worth it. the new cards that will probably be required to play crysis on max will most probably be good enough to handle its physics as well. kaotao April 21, 2007 12:04:09 AM Agreed.

And the reason they dropped because they're desperate to sell them. darkangelism April 21, 2007 1:10:34 AM they are decent if you play the game or two that are supported, beyond that they are usless, better to wait for nvidia or ati to release their own physics cards mrmez April 21, 2007 1:17:20 AM I made a prediction ~6 months ago The physx cards ar a load of WANK! These functions will be greatly reworked and included in future gfx cards. Its not that i know im right, but the mate i was 'discussing' it with, thought EVERYONE would eventually have a separate physx card. So....I know im right cos hes ALWAYS wrong EXT64 a b U Graphics card April 21, 2007 1:31:59 AM I believe that the new ATI cards (2900's) come with an integrated physics chip, so I wouldn't buy one of the separate cards. Once games need physics chips, they will come on the GPUs. enforcerfx April 21, 2007 1:58:00 AM Yeah, they don't do much of anything. Know why? I have one.

EXT64 a b U Graphics card April 21, 2007 2:42:22 AM Oh, is that what it is? I didn't really look into it, I just remember ATI advertising physics processing capability in their new GPUs, but that makes sense. prozac26 April 21, 2007 2:50:28 AM Quote:I have one. Don't feel sad.. You only wasted money and time. :wink: enforcerfx April 21, 2007 3:18:23 AM Hey, hey, hey. I didn't waste the money..... My folks did. If I could turn back time, I'd invest the 250 bucks in probably a better monitor or so at the time. Thanks for trying to make me feel better though prozac. darkangelism April 21, 2007 4:45:21 AM Quote: Thanks for trying to make me feel better though prozac. hahaha blade85 April 21, 2007 7:35:15 AM here, watch this vid of crysis and see the physics used.
