[OUT OF DATE]How To: Run PhysX in Windows 7 with ATi Cards - Page 95

You see, I want to play that game called "Alice: Madness Returns" while using a rather good ATI card. In this case the CPU calculates all the PhysX stuff, right? This decreases the frame rate enormously, so that a nice gaming expirience is not possible. Now, instead of supporting Nvidia by buying one of there graphics card I'm searching for another solution.

As other people have the same problem, I hope you can help us.

nope. the point of PhysX is that its coded into the API. nvidia is the only cards that also have it coded so that when an nvidia card is present, the PhysX calucations are offloaded onto the GPU and processed there, taking all the work away from the CPU.

when we have a dedicated card doing that work, a PPU (physics processing unit), thats why we get much better performance. you have your GPU doing that job in the graphics departments, the CPU doing all the groundwork and the PhysX capabale nvidia card doing all the phyics calcuations. in theory, maximum performance.

Hello! Thanks for the guide, it was very useful but sadly my BFG 8800 GTS 512 OC died today. So I want a (cheap) replacement for this card, a small and cool one! Do you think a PNY GT 240 would be good enough for games like Mafia II? Do you think it will we futureproof for physx?

Check out the chart I posted in post #1 here ... it gives a comparison: http://www.overclock.net/amd-ati/1067476-physx-gaining-more-popularity-being-phased.html

I have already seen this charts but I wonder why a GT 250 outperforms a 8800 GTS. I think I'm getting the GT 240 anyway. Thank you!

I guess because its a newer revision of the 8800 gts, so it should be a hair faster?

The GT250 uses 55nm lithography, vs 65nm for the 8800GTS 512. It's also a newer revision. These things allow it to be slightly more efficient and run at higher core and memory speeds.

ok, right now I'm using an ATI card of the 5700 series and I'm pretty satisfied with the gaming expirience. But now I'm in need of a nvidia card, due to the physX engined part of a game. Now is it more clever to use a minor but physX supporting nvidia card to relieve the work of the CPU and let the ATI card do the rest of the graphics calculating OR to just buy a rather new nvidia card and save the labor?
