Next version of FluidMark will feature Multi-Core CPU PhysX support

with 5 comments

PhysX FluidMark is popular benchmarking application, that is often used to test stability and performance of GPU PhysX configurations. It performs PhysX SDK based SPH Fluids particle simulation, which can be calculated on CPU or compatible Nvidia GPU, however, only one CPU core can be used in first case.

After all those “Multi-Core CPU Support Is Disabled in PhysX” claims by AMD and following hype, JeGX (FluidMark developer) decided to leverage multi-threading capabilities of PhysX SDK and augment FluidMark with actual multi-core CPU support.

According to short preview, published today – task was successful.

As you may see, updated version of FluidMark, running on JeGX dev. machine with ATI Radeon HD 5770 GPU, is fully utilizing both cores of AMD X2 3800+ CPU.

Update: JeGX revealed another screenshot from upcoming FluidMark with multi-core PhysX support, running on all four cores of quad core Intel Core 2 Extreme X9650 CPU.

Previous version of multi-core FluidMark was able to load only dual-core CPU, but this, updated one – can utilize  quad-core or even n-core CPU.

Update #2: And now – FluidMark running on 16 CPU Cores.

  2. Does Fluid Mark support 64 OS? With my Vista Ultimate 64bit I have no display of Fuid Mark simulatin. Application is running but main screen is still black. Only results are displayed when test is finished.

  3. Great to hear someone still cares about this.
    But i wonder what were they (devs) doing all this time, ignoring such an opportunity…

  5. Wow, nvidia isn’t going to be happy about this at all. They really don’t like anything that isn’t using their GPUs exclusively.
