Nvidia GTX 470 physX and R9 290 Can it be done?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I just got my R9 290 today and I have a GTX 470 as well. I was wondering if it's possible to install my AMD drivers and run the 470 doing physx. I do plan on selling it but not before I finish Arkham Origins with some Physx goodness

I've tried hybrid PhysX before (HD 7870 + GT 640) and if I recall it only worked with a particular Nvidia driver that has since been updated.

The hybrid PhysX patcher that I know (Hybrid PhysX mod 1.05ff Hybridize) has not been updated to work with the new drivers and the scene has since died down quite a bit.

I would imagine they'd both work as basic video cards, but you won't get PhysX acceleration.

That's why you need to use the Hybridize patch. I just checked their forums and it looks relatively up to date (last updated Feb 2014).
