Do you know if any PhysX-enabled cards have decent power usage when idling?
If dedicated GPU supports power saving features (like reducing GPU clock), it will use it when idle.
Looking at these benchmarks, I notice that even nVIDIA cards benefit from having a dedicated GPU PhysX card
Indeed, since one GPU is fully dedicated for graphics, second for PhysX calculations - there will be a nice boost in PhysX games (dependent on certain game and GPU combination, however)
Since I feel nVIDIA has had a convoluted methodology in naming their newer cards, would you be able direct me to a list of cards in their PhysX performance?
I don't remember if such list exist, you need to campare graphics card from similar cathegories by yourself (as I said, accent on CUDA cores number and GPU clocks)
In fact, if someone from the PhysX Info site sees this
I see it. We've planned something like this in the future
