While there are programs like GPU-Z that can differentiate between the 2 onboard gpu's, Nvidia's control panel/chipset drivers recognize it as one card so physx would run on both the onboard gpu's. HOWEVER! that does not mean all SLI systems can run discrete physx. If you had 3 PCI-e slots and ran a 580 and 2 GTX 260's...you could only use the 580 as discrete graphics and 1 of the 2 260's as physx. Nvidia knocked it outta the park with the 295 drivers in that regard
. GL HF! PM me if you have any other questions about that.
Ummm ... I don't think so.
I owned three 295's back in the day, and I'm here to tell ya ... the 295 is, in every sense (aside from physically) ... 2 cards in SLI. The Control Panel works exactly the same with it as it does with two cards in SLI.
I'm pretty sure that if you go into the PhysX control panel running a 295, you'll have two cores to choose from to run physX on, and no option for the 295 as a whole. Unless things have changed since when I owned one
Thus, I'm pretty sure that physX will run on only one of the two cores, exactly the same as if it were two physical cards.Edited by brettjv - 6/8/11 at 10:45am
