FAQ: PhysX - Page 15

post #141 of 269
I have a question, its probably answered before, so if its answered, can someone tell me what page number it is?

My PhysX settings always resets!
I set it to Auto-select (recommended), and when I reboot/reset/shut down-turn back on, the settings goes back to GeForce GTX 260 (2)

Why is that? When its gon GeForce GTX260 (2), i noticed my StarCraft becomes glitchy and fuzzy and I think I hear something in my computer (most likely the fan of the video card?) very loud!

How do I fix this?

I just did that, and it still has the problem of going back to GTX260 (2)

So do i understand it right that single 580 or even 570 would run pretty much anything with physx enabled by itself?

Update: I have updated the list of supported GPUs.
post #148 of 269
Do cards like ''GeForce 8500 GT GeForce 8400 GS GeForce 8300 mGPU GeForce 8200 mGPU GeForce 8100 mGPU'' actually support Physx?

Nvidia lists the min number of shaders (cores) needed is 32 and this put 8600GT as the 'lowest' card.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_faq.html
http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_gpus.html

So, if they are right, cards like the above list do not support Physx.

Please clarify.

Actually, you are partly correct. In reality, all CUDA GPUs are capable of running PhysX processing regardless of core count. However, starting with PhysX 9.09 drivers NVIDIA decided to start disabling GPUs with less than 32 cores to be able to activate PhysX processing.

There are a few ways around this but it will require you to do some modding or run older 8.09 PhysX drivers Link.

Another member posted a modded physxcore.dll file that allows you to run 9.09 drivers with PhysX enabled on all CUDA GPUs once again and even AGEIA PPUs. Link

However, if you want to use the latest 9.10 PhysX drivers there is another untested method that was originally made to restore support for AGEIA PPUs but is capable of restoring support for sub-32 core CUDA GPUs as well. Link

In order to prevent confusion I will add a note to the OP to reflect this. I appreciate you noticing this.
