New GTX560 Ti + GTX260 as physx? lower performace

Hey All,

So I just got new gtX560Ti - over my "old" 2xGTX260sli. Some might think this would be stupid thing to do, but in terms of temp. / power consumption / and performance single 560Ti is on top, and my main reason was dx11.

Anyhow, i installed 560 ran some benchmarks everything looked cool, then i got curious, and decided to install one of the GTX260's as Physx card. 260 didnt like new 266.66 Nvidia driver (560ti exclusive) and installed its own older version, which i didnt really care about. My main concern is - in 3D Mark 2006 i think, i got lower score with 260 dedicated as a Physx for some reason.

i think with 560ti only i got 22600 marks and with 560ti and 260 as physx i got 22000, which is none too crazy but, just curisous why?

Anyone has any idea? maybe cuz 3Dmark doesnt really use Gpu when processing physx and 560ti performes better physx-wise?

Thanks!

The older 3D Mark you used doesn't support PhysX, only Vantage does, so the 260 should have been idle. Maybe somehow it was still utilizing resources though, even though not in use.

Sorry to misinform, i am using 3D Mark Vantage... it does use Physix, as indicator comes up on some of the runs.

Well, depends on the 260 version, 260 sli performs inbetween a GTX 470 and GTX 480, and a GTX 560 isn't much more powerful than a GTX 470, in terms of raw-performance the GTX 260 SLI probably is a little more powerful.

Honestly, I don't even think a GTX 580 is a powerful enough upgrade from my GTX 260s to make it "worthwhile" I'll be waiting for the GTX 595.

Did you even read his post?

What exactly does any of your post have to do with anything in this topic? :pt1cable:  :bounce: 

The question is "Why does he get a lower Vantage score with a physics card installed then he does without a physics card installed"?
