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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
