[OUT OF DATE]How To: Run PhysX in Windows 7 with ATi Cards - Page 110

post #1091 of 1230
Just wondering if there are any updated versions or do I have to stick with the OP's version from more than a year ago?

awesome thats exactly what i did.

Has anybody done this with Crossfire yet?

I was thinking of upgrading my board to a AM3+ tri fire set up with at least 2 16x lanes.

Can I put a 460 or something like that in the Third Slot?

A couple months ago I was doing the same as you, trying to decide how much to spend on a dedicated physx card.
My system:
Gigabye board - Ga-890fxa-Ud7
Phenom II X6 1100t clocked @ 3.9ghz 8gb gskill 1600 c7
Patriot Wildfire 256gb Sata III SSD + storage drives
Hd 5970 + Hd 5870 both clocked at 900 / 1200
I read through this forum a lot and various others online and articles galore. I read a lot on the subject. A lot of ppl say older gen nvidia cards are fine for dedicated physx. 8800gt or higher I saw a lot. I however wanted to go newest gen but not go crazy on the price and also was looking for single slot card so I settled on a single slot GTS 450.
There was some hassle getting it to play right with the system / amd cards n what not but not too bad. I played around with it in and out to see the difference it made first hand. Alice Madness Returns was a good game to refer to as it played pretty bad with physx set anywhere higher then low without the nvidia card. Sad really, 6 core cpu and 3 gpu and still. But yea, the whole physx code written to only work well on nvidia hardware thing. So yea, with the GTS 450 in and set as dedicated physx card Alice played great with physx set to high and all settings maxed at 1080p.
I did the same with a couple other games, Batman AA for example, had the same results. I would have to turn AA down without the nvidia card to get the frame rate up. With the 450 in and running Batman plays ridiculously better with all settings maxed.
Also you've got the newer gen Amd cards obviously so I would think you could see even better results or just similar but in my case it worked out quite well and am happy to stick with my 5000 series cards for now and wait till 7000's probably and skip 6000s. Though I do have a Hd 6970 in my htpc. Overkill for htpc but I use it to drive 3d on my hdtv and also as a 2nd gaming pc.
Hope that helps man, If I were you I would get a 450 and see how it works out for you, or go bigger and more expensive if you want but in my case I found it not necessary. Also I picked the 450 over the models cheaper then it because of the nice jump in specs of the card.

Nice ive looking for this kind of experiences sharing. Well i ordered 1 EVGA GTX560Ti FBP to put with my MSI r6870's Hawk xfire, still on the process to figure out how to install all this together, im pretty sure ill put them all to work. If u have more experiences to share, please share them biggrin.gif.

interesting... does it run as well as on nvidia cards?
post #1097 of 1230
Thanks Ken for helping everyone out with their questions, even it means you're just posting the same thing over and over again. wink.gif

Following your steps, I successfully installed my new (to me) GTX460 with my 6970! +rep thumb.gif

Thanks!

 

I am glad you find it easy to set up as I always try to tell everyone thumb.gif

Ken my question would be is the graphics card dedicated for physX loading up at 100 percent? Or it just uses the part of the card that can process physx? would seem like a waste of a good card if physx only doesn't push the card to it's limits... If i have 6990s in quad setup will a gtx 570 bottleneck this? or simpler put what's the cheapest card I could get without bottlenecking. If not sure I'm gonna get the 580. Which version should I get the 3gb or 1.5gb does physx use a lot of vram? I want to have the best but not waste money at the same time.

Dedicated PhysX card simply as PhysX Processing Unit and not rendering, running the task of applications/games with Hardware PhysX Acceleration.

 

Loading up 100%? No, it depends on the applications. The most I have seen is in Benchmarks around 65-80% and games such as Batman and Mafia II, max i have seen so far is 50%.

 

I select PhysX Card is not base on the load but the number of Cuda Cores. With Quadfire setup I tested with GTX465, 480 and 580. I like 580 best. Other than that I don't have anything better to choose from.

 

Then again, all this boils down to personal preferences as what is worth or wahtnot. With Quad Setup you could get away with GTS450 and if you could accept the performance thats entirely for you to decide.

 

VRAM? Need no 3GB and 1.5 should be plenty. I have never seen it got used more than 700MB in any titles or benchmarks. But just for the sake of having 3GB 580, why not.

 

Take a look at this video, only a single 580 with a lower PhysX card and imagine what kind of performance would be if you pair it up with Quad-6990.
