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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
