[VR Zone] 9800GTX+ Confirmed - Page 3

post #21 of 66

But today nVidia also made an important announcement, which is finally the support of PhysX in the GPU. PhysX is a physics engine, which allows games to be more realistic by calculating how objects interact. For example, if you shot an object, what will happen to the object? Will the object move? Will the bullet make a hole on the object? Will the bullet bounce back? Will the object be destroyed? These calculations are traditionally done by the system CPU. The new 177.39 driver allows GeForce 9800 GTX, GTX 280 and GTX 260 to move these calculations to the GPU, thus improving performance. nVidia is promising for July a new driver that will allow PhysX for the entire nVidia product line.

We all know what that means.. More .inf modding. Silly green team thinks they can fool people into thinking there's special sauce in these new GPUs to run PhysX. Oh well, we know better, right guys?

Wow, they are really treating us like ignorant fools. This can already be done, with the 177.35 driver. Mod the INF file to install the driver as it would for the GTX2xx series for any of the 8xxx or 9xxx cards and there you go. CUDA and PhysX in it's full glory I have it running currently on my signature rig.

I have 177.35 running too - but PhysX? Already? I didn't know.

edit - just ran Vantage and there's definitely no PhysX running on the card.

Will it really, though? With the prices of the 48xx and the CF scaling, it wioll be interesting to see how this pans out.

I just bought two 9800GTX's.... A week later they announce this, it isn't even funny...

When I step up to the dual GTX280's I bet a few weeks later they will announce the GTX280+ huh!

Takes the biscuit to be honest.
To be perfectly honest you already fell for their trap by purchasing the 9800GTX.

What is wrong with releasing new and improved products? This doesn't make sense to me.

It was dumb to be a rebranded 8-series, everyone knew the HD4800's and new Nvidia were coming out.

I don't understand all this. Nvidia has been doing this for a long time, why are we all surprised?

Personally, I don't care what the number is, how new it is, or what nm it is, I look purely at performance numbers. Temps aren't that important to me, I've never even gotten close to the threshold. What I found comparing the newer cards is that my 8800 can basically beat the pants off a 9800 gtx, and it was cheaper. It is pretty close, but I saved money and paid just for performance, not the number on the card. The thing is, I knew going into it that the cards would only be fast for so long; we all knew that the 9 series were underachiever cards, yet a lot of us bought them anyway. Like always, the week after I bought my cards, they were $10 cheaper. Such is the GPU game.

The point I'm trying to make is, I'm satisfied that I made a good decision at the time I was ready to buy, and I'm happy with the performance I get. Maybe it's just me, but I'm not always looking at other cards and wishing I had gotten them instead...

The release is slated for September. It's called the GT200b. Make that step up last
