The Contol Panel Physx section just lets you decide which GPU to process it on, if you have more than one. You don't have a choice since you only have one (do not run it on the CPU, it's horrible). It's turned on and off within each individual games' settings though. In Metro there is a 'Advanced PhysX' option, you can turn it on and off in Metro with that setting.

Ok so i'm leaving it to my gpu if it is the best.

I took a pic where the game seems to be the most demanding and I got 20 fps
It's in the war chapter


From what I remember, when I played that game last week (great game btw), the avg fps was ~40 I think (I might have mixed up the min and avg in my head rolleyes.gif)

Nvidia only physics - they bought Ageia and PhysX with it - only used in a few games - think ATI/AMD use Havok physics, but DX11 has physics hooks anyway....
PhysX not allowed in some HWBot benches...
Not that big a deal....

see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PhysX for a list of games and better explanation.

laughingsmiley.gif Thanks

EDIT: You're right, I should have gone here before asking. I guess I'm just playing too lazy on this forum since I ask before I google things laugher.gif

One way or another highly overclocked 7970 1250+ on core and as much as possible on ram, will give you "playable" Metro 2033 experience regarding single gpu performance.

That isnt true, there is even a difference going from high to very high and its the lighting which vastly improves once very high is enabled plus you can use the games built in AA method instead of forcing MSAA which takes more of a performance hit. The best settings to go with for the best visual experience is to enable Very High but disable advanced physics/advanced dof and tesselation. Those 3 features will eat up your frame rates and give very little in return for improved visuals.

Btw DX11 very high runs the exact same as DX10 very high so I always enable DX11.

When I had my HD 7970 I loved the way it ran metro 2033, GTX 680 loses that one for sure.

According to the MSI site, the 680 Lightning only comes with a DVI to VGA adapter.

What adapter/cable is required to use this card with the Samsung S23A950D?

I'm concerned esp because I read that 120Hz can only be accessed with only one particular port, don't remember which one it is though.

Can anyone using this card with a 120Hz monitor shed some light on this issue?

Thanks a lot!

I also edited the config file to have the v-sync but I'm not sure it worked well


I was wrong rolleyes.gif The lowest isn't 40.
I just played a couple of minutes and It seams to be more around 20 fps min.
What exactly is physx confused.gif I don't know how to deactivate it (or activate it)...
That's what I get when I go the the nvidia CP.

Nobody said you can't run 2033 at a minimum of 40fps. You just can't with max settings. Duh! rolleyes.gif
