    The memory controller for the motherboard is the biggest bottleneck on eveyr system made since the 386 both Intel, ********, VIA all used the same basic layout that is the cripple to all performance.
    But to change it and have programming change to operate appropriately would cost millions. It has already happened for GFX cards thats why they have a few Tflops when combined and compared to a CPU setup. GFX cards are small enough to be redesigned effectively without worry about anything else as they just have an output and input.
    Try your cheap GFX against expensive graphics in 3DM06.
    Then do crap CPU against high OC CPU.
    The score will show you the difference is clear.
    Gaining 50 in CPU score on 3DM06 gives about 3-400 on total score.

    G80's do not currently support PhysX. There's about 1000 posts asking this very same question. ;-) Just takes 1 search button to locate 'em.

    Wow. That's lame. Isn't that just the inf for the driver to be installed on any card? Somehow, I highly doubt that enables GPU physx on the G80's.

    I doubt it is a top priority. They have a stack of new cards to get rid of and move onto the newer cards to compete with ATI.

    I gave up waiting and got a 260

    since I just recovered from a system crash I don't wanna give it a try for the moment but if there are volunteers among you... :p
    I don't think I'm gonna invest in a new card just to play ut3 for the moment :p my g80's doing all the work I'm asking it to!

    we have to install cuda too besides the physx and forcewarte drivers in order for physx to work?

    Eaxcat Reason For G80 Not supporting Phsyx until Aug5th

    It depends upon the cuda level obviously nvidia has only enabled the physx drivers to recognise cuda level 1.1,1.2,1.3 cards as physx ready.

    It is the Physx driver that must change to enable support for cuda 1.0 devices which will by all accounts be in the new Aug 5th 'Physx Pack'

    Can't find the list but the g80 cores are CUDA 1.0
    the g92 cores are CUDA 1.1
    etc 1.2 upto gtx280@1.3

    I hope this clarifies matters if anyone can provide a chart of CUDA level for gpu it would be handy
