[OUT OF DATE]How To: Run PhysX in Windows 7 with ATi Cards - Page 102

post #1011 of 1230
Maybe should try latest 258.38.

Could be a huge performance boost over the old driver.

They're 285.38 and they're designed for BF3. No reason to use beta drivers for PhysX

It is not a typo.

Curious who wants to give it a go

What do you mean it's not a typo?

You've written 258.38 and linked to the 285.38 betas. Something's a typo

There is only one way to find out with the latest driver is to try it out

what kind of dedicated card do you have to have to get physx to run on highest settings well with a 6950?
post #1017 of 1230
what would be better, a gt 440, or a 9800gt for a dedicated physx card?
post #1018 of 1230
i bought a gtx 460 in the end, it is an oem version, so it was pretty cheap.

it is a little bit downclocked but it can be overclocked to match retail.

and even if you don't overclock, it is still a great card for that price. beats other cards at that price by quite a margin.

Here it is:

1. Install Forceware 258.96, do not restart.

2. Run the patch, restart pc.

3. No need to go to NV panel to do anything.

4. No need to create fake display.

5. Check GPU-Z, if PhysX is checked then it is working everywhere.

6. Keep it simple.
