    First: Do not ask me how I get these files.

    These files are Physx SDK 2.8.4 and 3.1 and in them are the files: "PhysXCore, PhysXCore64, PhysXDevice, PhysXDevice64, PhysXLoader, PhysXLoader64, NxCooking, NxCharacter, NxCharacter64" among many others.

    In my tests, I changed by these files and got an increase of 10fps to 20fps in all games, but since I do not know enough to create a driver with these files. I ask that these files are well used to create a driver for all.

    I know the CPU continues to run physx on computers without an Nvidia GPU, maybe the games have improved because they now allow physx run using multi-core CPUs.

    Note1: The file "PHYSX4DCC_PhysX3_x86.dll" can be used as "PhysXCore.dll" just rename. "PHYSX4DCC_PhysX3Cooking_x86" can be used as "NxCooking.dll" or "PhysxCooking.dll" but I not recommend change.

    Note2: Some games run shall go only if you replace the files in the "Common" directory that is in the PhysX driver but some others have crash.

    Sorry for my English, I had to use "Google Translate", enjoy. :nerd:

    If you say its also with physx 3.1 files, then it could be just that.

    Physx 3 is known to have some drastic differences, imo its what physx 2.xx should have been from the start.

    Isnt it well known that PhysX 3 uses Multicore and isnt this already included in Batman AC and shipped within the SDK/Apex?

    Yeah.

    Batman is using some apex features but the base code is still outdated physx 2 (2.8.4). Newb Nvidia had to milk it some more -_-

    Just a warning, one game on Steam install an old Physx driver on my computer and now files physx sdk 3.1 does not seem to work in some games that worked before, such as "Mirrors Edge", "Borderlands" , "Batman AA", I try reinstall the driver but no avail, I use version: 9.12.203, Now I think I'll test with the version: 9.12.0209.

    I like to put this topic also in the area "AMD Driver" to call people who do not have an Nvidia GPU, may I?

    2.8.4 has been multi-threaded for quite some time, it just needs more work than 3.x to enable it.

    Hopefully more people start using PhysX3 though, but last I heard some developers were resistant to change from 2.8.x as they felt was 3.x was still very much beta.

    Will try this myself when I get home and compare, see if there is any difference.

    I also thought about it, but in Mirror's Edge, I noticed better effects and not their fault, the files that changed in my tests were mainly "PhysxCore.dll", "PhysxDevice.dll" and "PhysxLoader," none of this connected with APEX's extensions.

    I hope this is better than that PhysX hack for Mafia II,

    which supposedly brings better FPS.............. BY DISABLING PARTS OF PHYSX

    That's just great, but Borderlands has no hw accelerated PhysX to begin with

    I now, was just to say that the files also work in the borderlands, some games do not accept the new physx files.

    But thanks, I'll change it.

    ok :) but what do you mean by
    Works fine Without Nvidia GPU after change the files

    works fine - as in DOES NOT CRASH, or were you able to confirm PhysX visuals?

    Some of the effects from Apex Destruction, Clothing and Particles are subtle,
    and in order to confirm them as working, you should really know what to search for on screen

    I did this topic to share these files, now I unfortunately do not have an Nvidia GPU so I can not tell if that has to change the performance for you, but i don't have an Nvidia GPU and has improved greatly, imagine for those who have.

    I wait for your test, I do not have this game, I would like to know more about how these files can be used.

    With this files, some games are run perfectly with physx enabled even if used only the CPU, then "Works Fine" = no lags, no crash in computers without Nvidia GPU.
