It seems that some enthusiasts are trying to bypass ATI (for Graphics) + Nvidia (for PhysX) hybrid configurations blockage using modified drivers.
We’ll try to keep an eye on all developments and update this post accordingly.
Update #4: New 1.02 mod – now with 195.xx drivers and WinXP support – it’s recommended to prefer this one over 1.01 mod.
Probe #1: Modded 190.62 WinXP 32-bit drivers (useless)
Report: “Someone just took old files (from 185.68) and changed their resources and version info, to make it look similar to real 190.62. Needless to say, this doesn’t give you real 190.62 with all fixes and changes.”

Probe #2: PhysX Mod 1.01 x86 (not available) and PhysX Mod 1.01 x64 (not available) by GenL
(no support for 195.xx drivers currently)
NVIDIA GeForce driver 19x.xx PhysX mod [x86/x64] v1.01
This mod will enable hardware PhysX support for NVIDIA GPU, when non-NVIDIA GPU
is used as a primary display device.
- intended only for WDDM 1.1 OS (Windows 7).
- only for multi-vendor multi-GPU configurations.

Update: Video, showcasing this Mod in the work.
