ok so i have a 9800gtx and i noticed the new drivers have the ability to use another card for deticated physics so i have an old 8600gt 256mb that is just gathering dust so i am using it as a physics card. i dont notice any diffrence in any of my games even ones that have physics (GRAW). before i installed the 8600gt i downloaded some physics test from nvidia and ran it on the 9800gtx alone and it seems to do better at it than the 8600gt did deticated so i want to know is deticated physics a waste or is my 8600gt just held back by the 256mb (which was the minimum) memory? if so should i get a 9600gt 512mb or just forget about deticated.
I assume you all have gone to the nvidia web site to get the physix drivers?
I havent done it but I know there is a seperate additional driver for it.
I have been looking into this a little also and they say it must be a 8xxx series or highr card.
It figures as the only other one I have is a 7900.
Sorry not much time but just to be clear.
My 8800 doesnt come with all necessary drivers and I dont have any idea about the 280, but look at this and see if it pertains.
Honestly I see it in my Nvidia control panel but cant recall if I downloaded it or if it is there by default, and I dont know if more is needed. http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_9.09.0010_whql.html
I think any 8xxx or above card will do the job.
I recently brought my `b` (brothers) system up-to-date (8800 GTS 640 G80) and the drivers report PhysX to be enabled through that, even though it`s a single card setup.
What about a 9500?
i'm getting a new pc with 4870 ati card in it.
the mobo i'm getting is crossfire ready, but i was wondering can i use my 8600gt for physics, and the ati for grafics?
or ati and nv don't work together with the drivers? i'm not speaking of sli/xfire them, only the nv for physics. because ati doesn't have physics
