    n°2 is nonsense. You can't have an ATI card working with hardware PhysX.
    In fact, n°2 and n°3 are the same thing.

    I think you should put the FPS on the same line as where youre stating the hardware, its confusing jumping up and down between 1,2,3 to see whats what. I might be getting pedantic though lol

    Sorry it took so long to write back but thanks a ton for your help, I think this should be stickied so everyone can see it. I too confirm this works and is very stable! It's very tricky though.

    Thanks soooo much!!!

    Sweet seems like a person really need an nvidia card to play CRYOSTASIS, really wanted to play that game but the performance really puts me off.

    Thanks for the info.

    I know its working for sure cause I installed the physx pack and its working great I only played one map I'll try the others later.

    I ran Vantage and scored around 10896 points, the cpu score was around 34000 which is a big jump for me lol.

    are you crazy or just a tester? how did you know was going to go ok and not fried any of the cards?
    holy sh.. I wouldn't dare! obviously its a huge bench/test/mark or whatever do you/they call that...you should be offering yourself to Nvidia and Ati or any of theses marks that manufactures the cards..it's a huge step pal.
    Congra...really.:nerd::nerd::nerd::nerd::nerd::nerd::nerd::nerd::nerd::nerd:

    I supposed you already know all that correct?
    makes a lot of people :bunch::bunch:
    jump of envy!!!

    Hello again - are these also useful to use for ONE Ati 4780 X2 in Win 7 RC?
    If so, PLEAAAASEEE which one should I download?

    Have in mind I'll not RUN GAMES but 3D software and graphics software. ONLY so to say...

    thanks again, pal!

    Nice! I am happy to see that there are some people who follow my steps and keep this thing updated. (My old thread is out-of-date now.) Thanks for the information about the latest working driver versions.

    But may be I did not miss all fun: Can I use up-to-date physx system software packs with the last-working 181.71 driver? Did you tested the new 186.08 beta (or any new driver with CUDA 2.2)? Could you tried to manually replace the cuda.dll with one from cuda 2.2 enabled drivers (or replace the control panel in 185.xx with this one from 181.71)?

    I will buy a cheap geforce card again to play Terminator Salvation and Cryostasis (and my be to re-play Mirror's Edge with hardware physx but that is buggy as I can see it in your benchmarks).
    Off: Why do people started to wear this name-ending? :infinity:

    Hi damien,
    Well I tried the way you have at #1 post except i used the new 9.7 catalyst drivers.
    All worked fine and got 8500+ points in fluidmark.
    But when I play the cryostasis the fps are very low and the game looks sluggish.I get 30-50 fps in 1920x1200 but it doesnt feel smooth at all.
    Also I noticed in gpuz that the 9800gt runs PCIEX@4x?Is that a problem?
    Any suggestions??
    Thank you


    EDIT:uninstalled physx drivers and cryostasis.Installed latest physx drivers and game works smooth totally.35 is minimum fps now.
    Also here is star tales benchmark default settings
