And the !!!Bulldozer is prime example!!, amd continues to release inferior products they just don't care
You just now find that out?
lol. 3DMark 11 (and previous versions, i assume) doesn't use PhysX capabilities. However, in 3DMark Vantage, the Physics test will use PhysX if PPU is enabled... maybe you should check this whitepaper too:
"The physics test utilizes the AGEIA PhysX library to simulate a complex game world with large amounts of physical content. The PhysX library also allows for an AGEIA physics accelerator (physics processing unit, PPU) to be used, if one is installed. The default settings will utilize the AGEIA PPU if available to simulate any or all parts of the physics content, as deemed necessary.
The utilization of the AGEIA PPU can be switched off and the result will still be approved as a default result. GPU physics performance is not a part of this test as GPU physics capabilities are tested in GT1 and GT2."
There are better ways to call someone out on an error than to mock them. We all learn on these forums ayt? Be nice
If you have an Nvidia card and 3dMark Vantage, you can try to run a bench with PPU enabled
1. Physics core will increase with PPU enabled.
2. CPU score will probably increase as well with PPU enabled (idk why yet... and i don't really care to find out)
3. Overall, these will improve the 3DMark Vantage score after the bench is done...
This might be a direct impact of the physx software
package. However, I have not bothered to find this out myself. I'll do some more research and see (or anyone with solid knowledge on this should feel free to educate me).
After a bit of reading, it seems it does
use PhysX-capable hardware where present so there will be notable differences with AMD vs. Nvidia on that.
Now let's all hug and stop arguing Edited by dklimitless - 11/5/11 at 8:07am
