    Don't lie to me

    My dual 670s told me that I could put my 6950 under them and they would let it use physx

  3. You can install your 6950 in the same system with your dual 670 an still use PhysX. That's because the 670's support PhysX. As renz496 said, PhysX is an Nvidia technology, period! Nvidia thought it up and they implemented it on their GPU's. AMD has there own technologies and since AMD graphics cards compete directly with Nvidia graphics cards, they DON'T share!

    Perhaps it detected the AMD card in the nvidia control panel.

    But as of yet, there is no decent hack or mod that allows PhysX to work on AMD graphics chips. Or Intel for that matter. (I would LOVE to use my HD4000 for PhysX)

    Trust me, I've looked. There just really isn't a driver-hacking community like there used to be back in the Geforce FX days.
  5. As renz496 said Physx tech is Nvidia's tech, here's a list of supported Physx GPUs.

    The 6950 isn't on in, nor is any other AMD card. To my knowledge you can run an AMD card as the main gpu(with or without crossfire) and use a Nvidia gpu as a physx processor but you cant use an AMD card as a physx processor.

    Gone are the days of daisy chaining voodoo cards for miles ;3

    LLO, Sounds like it worked. Good One!
  10. since you already have all the hardware needed you can try it for yourself. a single 670 will let you use advance physx even there is no dedicated physx card available on the system. will a single 6950 let you do the same?

    and to be clear you must remember not all physx effect run by the gpu. some other game might use PhysX as their physic engine but still the calculation still done by the cpu. that's why some games require you to install physx software even if you were running on AMD gpu.
