post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i read that a not very powerful card can be good at running phzs-x i have another 9800gt. would that be a okay card to work at that task. or do they have to match? its more of i'd like to learn how or why. not so much to pump up my system. but i would liek to try if anyone is willing to help a newb .

We dont know what card youll be running it in tandem with.

Its kind of hard for us to answer questions without enough detail to know what to expect.

sorry about that . the other card is a evga gtx560 ti .

I would imagine it wont really help, but I don't think ti will be detrimental either.

Say you had a 780, the 8800GT would just slow the whole process down.

I did some study into this and the only thing I could really dig up was that it is only clutch on older cards... Anything newer 6xx, 7xx or Titan series would be throttled by a lesser card. In such a way that the main would be rending (Whatever they do) and the slower phys-x card would still be playing catch up. Any of these newesh cards should be able to handle phys-x all in its own.

If all that makes sense?

The 560 is like 5-6 8800GTs.

It can handle the phys-x processing and rendering quite easily, where having the 8800GT for physics will hold it beck due to things like latency, and just overall not having quite the compute power to keep up.

For what little it may help, it will probably keep the 560 waiting too much to be worthwhile.

i see the 9800gt would slow it down. because its slower and isnt made to handel as much data ?

All in all yes, it cannot process data as fast.

slightly off topic. i see i have option to have phys-x run by my cpu. whats that entail? my cpu out shines my gpu. 4 cores @4.9 12mb cache

also what is phys-x? the game engine or just more program stuf that seems like rocket science ?
