Geforce 8400m GS

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My laptop has a 8400 GS card in it, I am curious about the Ageia physx software. I think it installed along with some game, I know nvidia bought ageia, but is the ageia software part of my nvidia driver or can I safely remove it. Also, is it possible to upgrade my video card from the 8400gs to a gt, or to the mobile 9xxx series when its available?

Is your video integrated as part of a laptop as mine is? If not, then you would have to upgrade the card to get to a GT or at the very least, overclock it to reach GT speeds. Most laptop video cards are not upgradeing. The PhysX software may mean that it has a PhysX card built into the video card, or uses it to help the card process physics engines in games.

Physx that you seek is part of your card. its in the drivers. Problem is what are you trying to use your card for? The 8400 is a horrable performer to be honest with you! It will run physx if it were in an actual computer not a laptop. The 8400 runs games really bad!

you could upgrade your 8400GS to a GT if you could find a card that would be compatable with your laptop and you would have to tear the lappy apart to install it.

Though, I must warn you it will be a long quest my friend. And in all oppinions that I shall state here and now. Its not worth it to ever consider upgrading from an 8400GS to an 8400GT in a laptop. you will need to find a 9800GS or 8700 for the lappy in order to game

My 8400m GS performs just fine for a laptop. I overclocked from 400/800/400 to 650/1300/461, tripling my FPS in call of duty 4. I get about 75fps with low settings @ 1280x800. Stock settings get me about 22 to 25fps.

Just install the 169.04 or 185.20 drivers, and it will let you overclock. Please note that I designed my own forced-air cooling solution for this overclock. Max temps around 68C.
