    Hi everyone!

    Goal:
    I want to use an old GTX 630 as an dedicated PhysX Card with my
    AMD A10-7850K APU as GPU-Unit.

    Explanation:
    I researched a lot on the Internet about this topic, but didn't find anything.
    Also I don't know very much about the AMD + NVIDIA case.
    I think this combination is really uncommon. I hate it to post on my self, but in this case I think its more efficient.
    Maybe in this Forum somebodycan tell me something about.

    PS: Forgive me the english. I'm from germany.

    Hi, willkommen :)

    Its not possible anymore, but you can use some old physx hack, although now you will be limited to older drivers and some newer games might not work properly.

    This is a little newer and more detailed method, for your 630GT its recommended to use 314.22 driver (Kepler 600 series)..

    and this, but that ngo hq link above looks better with newer 314.22 driver

    Any luck?

    It might be doable. I followed the ***** hybridize guide and was able to use my GTS450 however I could not get it working with a newer 740 GT card. Seems to be card specific. I think the 630GT is doable though. Curious what kind of luck you had?

    I did it some years ago with an Ati and Nvidia card and to be honest physx is not worth the hassle.
