I have a Gigabyte GA-E7AUM-DS2H motherboard.
It uses a GeForce 9400 graphics chip.
Originally, it had PhysX running with no problems. There was a demo utility that included various demo scenes. It was brilliant.
Now, presumably after a graphics driver update or two, & a number of months of not playing games, I discover that PhysX is nowhere to be seen. Even the demo is gone.
I downloaded another PhysX demo, phluidfysics, and its rubbish. Clearly no PhysX accelration is running on my system.
Curiously, there is a PhysX subdirectory in Program Files
GPUz shows the PhysX box un-ticked.
I've rolled-back the driver - still no PhysX.
Have NVidia decided to prevent PhysX from being used on anything but the top-end chips?
I can find nothing to tell me.
Physx on 9400GT?LOL,Buddy,Physx needs atleast 32 cuda cores to be enabled in a system.9400gt is not a gaming card and is never a top end card,higher number does not means performance always,a 8600gt is faster than your card.9400gt has 16cores.it cannot run physx in any way.

Scoff all you like mrjericho1991, but I am telling you that it did work, & worked well.
The minimum requirement to support GPU-accelerated PhysX is a GeForce 8-series or later GPU with a minimum of 32 cores and a minimum of 256MB dedicated graphics memory. However, each PhysX application has its own GPU and memory recommendations. In general, 512MB of graphics memory is recommended unless you have a GPU that is dedicated to PhysX.

Are you using the latest drivers from Nvidia? I really don't think that Nvidia would pull Physx support for the 9400?
