ATI/Nvidia Hybrid PhysX help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just put a 9800gt 1gb in alongside my 5850, I used this software to get it to work

http://www.ngohq.com/graphic-cards/1...3-v1-05ff.html

drivers are all up to date, however I cant open Nvidia Control panel because it reads: "You are currently not using a display attached to an Nvidia Gpu"

I know this obviously^^^

But shouldnt it be tricked into thinking that it is because of the hybrid software?

Drivers are all up to date.

I'm trying to test whether or not its working. Metro 2033 benchmark shows GPU2 (9800 gt) being used about 10%, but fluidmark doesn't show GPU2 being used at all, ugh am i gonna have to buy batman just to see? edit: o wait i have mafia 2

All I could find was this -

Q: How do I set up a fake display?
A: First you need a driver to be installed for your NVIDIA GPU already (default MSDN driver is suffice). Open "Display Properties" ("Screen Resolution") dialog, click "Detect". Select a display assigned to your NVIDIA GPU, then set the "Multiple Displays" to "Try to connect anyway on: VGA" option. Click "Apply".

Pretty sure I did this combination at some point but I will try it in that order.

Thanks all, okay well I'm pretty sure I'm set. APEX physx off in mafia 2 gave me 0% gpu2 usage, and with it on high it gave me about %10 gpu usage

did you delete the physx dll files from fluid mark and then re run the test?

Wow! I did this and checked off force cpu, and got immediate 74% usage from gpu 2, so I guess I have a hybrid physx set up now!?

Thanks! +rep
