Adoption of hybrid ATI + Nvidia PhysX configurations is growing day by day. We wrote recently about some benchmarks using hybrid PhysX setup, and now BodNara website has published an article, that is investigating perfomance in games with GPU PhysX support using ATI HD 4850/5750 + NV 9800GT configuration.
Test setup: Intel Core I7 860 CPU, Asus P7P55D Motherboard, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 32-bit Win 7 Ultimate OS, Catalyst 9.9 and ForceWare 191.07 drivers
As you may see, Batman Arkham Aylum and Darkest of Days are working fine on hybrid setup, but not Mirror’s Edge. This title needs, afaik, right combination of PhysX and GPU drivers and some manipulations with PhysX engine .dlls to get it working.
But that’s not all. People planning to add dedicated PhysX GPU to their setup are often bothered with question like “How many PCI-E lines are enought for PhysX GPU ?“. Following benchmark shows that even PCI-Ex4 slot is OK.
