    Not to sure if i can link to the website, but anyone who has hybrid physx knows where to download the mod. Just thought i would share this information. It is very sad indeed. Hopefully someone else can take up the project.


    P10 "There is no reason for a changelog as all development on this mod is now officially frozen/completed. They have defeated my hack at this point, it's too difficult/I am too busy to continue, but it was good while it lasted. My recommendation is that if Mantle isn't awesome(both revolutionary and worth more than PhysX, which I doubt --does anybody know yet?) then just buy nVidia next time I guess(They only rip you off with the top of the line cards.)"

    This really is a shame as I was just looking at getting 2x 290x + a simple nvidia for PhysX. Now I don't know whether to go 2x 290X or 2x780 Ti. I would save about 140 pounds on the AMD cards, but I won't have PhysX and so far I have preferred the Nvidia drivers compared to my AMD experiences.

    If you want Gpu physx that bad then go for the cards that give you what you want.

    Meh, have there been any PhysX enabled games at all since Borderlands 2?

    So this hybrid PhysX is totally new to me.
    Is it something that allows you to have AMD as main card and use Nvidia card for PhysX processing using CUDA cores?

    edit: nvm found it http://physxinfo.com/wiki/Hybrid_PhysX
    Damn I would totally use oldie 8800GTX for that...

    No where did i say that it would work without a nvidia card, All I was saying with my post is to get the card that has the features you want. I just worded it wrong. I meant to say if you want Full GPU physx support get a pair of Nvidia card's, if not then a cheap card for hybrid physx with the limitation of GPU usage for 2.0 using games, since hybrid doesn't work for 3.0.

    Of course I know you must have a nvidia card if you want GPU PhysX /Hybrid PhsyX.

    Yeah pretty disappointing, I just found out last night when I was trying to get it to work on Arkham Origins. The worst part is that, at least on that game, the developers themselves seemed to have disabled it in the game itself. Hybrid physX works just fine in the Multiplayer portion of the game, but is locked out on the main single player portion.

    Yeah, the moment Nvidia decided to block GPU accelerated PhysX if it detected a ATI/AMD video card, it was dead to me.
