i've been trying the lastest forceware beta drivers that enable hardware physics on nvidia gpus

and made a small vid of ghost recon advanced warfighter 2 to show it
looks sweet, and not noticeable performance drop (tho i think there's a small one with warmonger, free game based on the ut3 engine which is a bit heavier than this)

anyway.. here 'tis

There shouldn't be a noticeable performance drop in any game, as it uses the extra gpu to make the calculations. But I agree, nvidia really has it going on with the 8+ series(still the most cost effective series :p) Unless AMD comes out with something amazing I dont plan on ever going back to them

yeah, its real cool


but zeke.. what about games that stress 100% of the gpu, shouldnt those be slower when adding physics calcs? i mean, if there weren't any extra gpu to spare
just wondering hehe, dont really know for sure
