Discussion in 'Videocards vs General Purpose - NVIDIA Ageia PhysX' started by me3850, Jun 20, 2008.
i installed it, then found out i have no games to test it on. :bang:
Hi all so do I need to mod the drivers for my 8800gt 512 on my m3a32-mvp deluxe mobo to use them with the physix thing?
My 8800GTX work fine with driver 175.16 and all game that support PhysX run great...Oh forgot i have a BFG PhysX card...sorry..heheheh well its good that nvidia have the GPU do physis but i think its going to be slow at high physis cause even with a physis card at high and very high setting i drop about 10 FPS cuz the more eye candy the more the video card have to draw...
Just download the drivers and a modded inf and then install it along with the latest nvidia physx drivers and it should work, all the files are floating around in this thread.
The physx drivers are on the first post along with the drivers here
What os do you use?
No mate, no grudge against Nvidia, my cards for last 5 years have been solely Nvidia. Just expressing my views about shady business practices. I think Futuremark will support Physx but they will have to do it some other way so that the Vantage scores maintain a sense of credibility across the board. In its present form it does not. We shall just have to wait and see.
I've been getting some micr0stutter issues in UT3 engine based games like gears of war, anybody also get these issues?
OMFG..........it actually works!!!
I went from P5880 to P8008 in 3DMark Vantage, this is great!!...now to try some games.
hmmmmm does't work for me it seems odd -,-
G92 only!! fer now.... :banana:
Could s.o. with a compatible GPU show us the following keys please? TIA
"PhysXCore Path"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\AGEIA Technologies"
Ok can someone else confirm my finding.
I am running the latest PhysX driver from Nvidia website (8.4 i think)
I am also running 177.35 modified driver for my 8800GTX.
I can run all the PhysX demos, they all seem very fast and smooth to me.
Ive also run UT3 with PhysX enabled and it seems to be smoother and faster.
Is the GPU doing the PhysX or is it my CPU? It just seems really fast to me thats all.
And many people are saying that this is only for G92-core and not the G80 core, I thought that all 8 series cards could do PhysX? It just seems to be working for me.
The links dont work anymore...
It says that the file has either been removed or has expired.
Can anybody test to see if blu-ray playback still works under these drivers?
Im not too sure here but could anyone clarify if this is normal:
im sure that before i used the 177.35/177.39 drivers on my system there was always an amount for system video memory or shared system memory now it says zero for both and i cant remember if its always been that way.
Nvidia Forceware 177.39
NVIDIA physX 8.06.12
compared to the 7516 inf file in the new one only has a few new lines, but a bunch missing.
nvcuda.dll = 1
PhysX 8.06.12 is mandatory!
Actually they updated only the control panel.
From my understanding the CPL checks the GPU:
10001C21 push offset aNvcuda_dll ; "nvcuda.dll"
10001C42 push offset aCudevicegetnam ; "cuDeviceGetName"
and then determines the PhysX core path.
Looks like NVIDIA just wants to push their current products...
atm working d/l mirror: LINK REMOVED STOP PLUGGING YOUR SITE
Drop 700 points in 3dmark 2006 from 177.35 with physx active.
I don't test with Vantage but seems games a little slow.
Back to 177.35 until games don't work with physx.
