Windows 7: Ati + Nvidia For Physics

26 Aug 2009   #11

Windows 7

I did a little research on those forums and it looks like you'll have to use some old drivers 182.xx(they are working on some modded drivers)
have a look here Nvidia disables PhysX when ATI card is present - Page 10 this seems like a active thread.

Good luck! :)

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I think I got it to work almost perfect If I select display 1, it uses the 4890, fluidmark (physx benchmark) only got a score around 1800. If I extend the display's it uses both cards and fluidmark got a score of 7719. Only one minor problem, I don't have 2 monitors so when I select extend display's I can drag a program or the mouse off the screen, so what I done is drag the #2 display to the bottom right corner of #1 display, that way the only way to move the mouse off the screen is in the bottom right corner which is almost perfect.

At one point in time PhysX was its own company with its own PCI card. About 2 years ago Nvidia bought them out, to me a kinda cheap move. But it made it cheaper to purchase those PCI chips. They were about $99.99. Then when nvidia bout them out they started building them into there graphics cards.

So theoretically, they functioned as a stand alone once why cant they now just under a second graphics card?

Because Nvidia is having a pout, and like a little kid taking their ball and going home. Wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that ATI is going to have DX11 parts out several months before Nvidia does.

Nvidia claim it's because it makes driver support more difficult.

I say it's a poor marketing and developmental decision with a hint of sour grapes.

Is it possible to have physics inside of Windows 7?
I've tried searching, but to be honest I'm not quite sure how to word it and haven't been able to come up with much. Essentially, I'm looking for a program that will introduce friction into Windows. As in, if your dragging a window and you let go it will keep sliding, or possibly collision...
