Hi guys, Im wondering if I am able to run a Nvidia card with a Ati one. I mainly want to run Physx but is it possible?
Thx

  1. Ugh... It is possible, but it's kinda tricky.

    Hope it helps.

    Cheers!
  2. You have to be using Windows 7.
  3. Or Windows XP or Linux.
    Either:
    1. Have a OS that supports multiple video drivers (Win 7, XP, Linux)
    2. Use hacked nVidia drivers

    It's not either 1 or 2, both 1 and 2 are required.
  5. Yes, bystander has it right. nVidia released a driver recently that forced the nVidia card to not work if an ATI card was present. Sort of like shooting themselves in their own foot.
  6. Their own foot? They didn't spend money on a new card with false hopes...

    Cheers! :P
  7. There's a small but existent market that only bought an nVidia card so they could do GPU Physics. If nVid stopped that, those people would just go with ATI.
  8. Meh, let developers turn to DX11 and OpenCL and we won't need nVidia for PhysX. Heck, let devs even learn how to use CPU cores for physics!

    I just hope they see the light! xD!

    Cheers!

    Wouldn't those same people then use an ATI card AND an Nvidia card? Ya, some might just use an older card, but others would purchase both.

    It might also make physX a bigger market and further push it's adoption in the market.
  10. In related news it is now known you can disable any G80, G92, GT2XX, or Fermi based nVidia card by waving an ATI Radeon card within 1 feet of it.
