GPUs with PhysX support

From PhysX Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

PhysX support or hardware PhysX acceleration feature is the ability of NVIDIA GeForce GPUs to perform certain types of physics simulation (based on NVIDIA PhysX SDK physics engine) in hardware, faster than conventional CPUs.

NVIDIA GPUs supporting PhysX accelleration

We added a rough and approximate rating system, to indicate PhysX computing capabilities of GPUs in several types of configurations.

Performance rating is provided with reference to GPU PhysX games, released in 2011.

In general: the amount of CUDA cores and Processor/GPU clocks matters (the more the better), on-board memory on the other hand; not so much (as long as it fits minimum requirements).

* Only available for OEM

** Dual-cards can use only one GPU for physics calculation, if utilized as dedicated PhysX cards.

GeForce for Notebooks

Tesla/Quadro Professional Graphics

Technically, GPU PhysX is supported by CUDA-capable Tesla/Quadro graphics cards, however one will have to use the WDDM GeForce driver, not the TCC (Tesla Compute Cluster) driver, to get the GPU physics acceleration.

Additional signs

In addition, GeForce GPUs featuring PhysX support can be recognized by several variations of signs on their packages, for example:

GeForce GTX 460 from Galaxy
GeForce GTX 460 from Galaxy
GeForce GTX 580 from Point of View
GeForce GTX 580 from Point of View
