Does the new GPU on the Titan cards run PhysX faster? It has a huge amount of compute power.

Good question.
It definitely should run GPU PhysX calculations faster due to its raw computing power, but so far there are not much of exact numbers on the web - only a few articles include benchmarks for games like Borderlands 2 or Batman: Arkham City with PhysX enabled

We might see more details later, if more Titan owners will publish their results.

Hello to all of you,

So I have the chance to built a new PC with 3 GTX TITAN  Smiley
Here 's the config :

Mobo : Supermicro X9DRG-QF
Processor : 2 x Xeon E2640 @2.5 Ghz
RAM : 128 Go ECC
HD : 2 x Samsung 840 512 Mo
Graphic cards : 3 x GTX Titan with 3-way-SLI brigde.

The Nvidia control pannel can detect the 3 titan with physX enabled, I can choose which card to dedicate physx to. But Nvidia Fluid demo sofware said that there are not physX card for the demo.
So my question is : what is wong ? Do I have to have a compatible physX motherboard ?

Any idea ?
Thanks
Thibault

What kind of demo - this one ?
http://physxinfo.com/wiki/PhysX_Fluid_Demo

It is pretty old, have you tried to install Legacy PhysX driver
http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx-9.12.1031-legacy-driver.html

alongside with normal one ?

What about GPU PhysX games, are they working normally ?

No either, I have try with Batman AC, but I think it's also an old game.

But my question is still : does the motherboard have to be SLI compatible tu use use SLI PhysX ?

Thanks

Nope, you don't need SLI support and special SLI connector is not required either. Unless you want use SLI alongside with GPU PhysX.
