How to restore Ageia PPU support with latest NVIDIA Drivers: Video Guide

without comments

Andrew “MohawkADE” Elliott, our fellow reader and big fan of original Ageia PhysX cards, has prepared a video version of his guide on how to restore PPU support with latest PhysX Drivers.

Ageia PPUs are not recognized by latest PhysX System Software releases, but with a bit of work you will be able to play every game with hardware PhysX acceleration (assuming you have NVIDIA GPU as well), without necessity to reinstall PhysX drivers for each title.

Please note that only certain games (based on PhysX SDK below 2.8.3) are featuring PPU support. Even following this guide, you can't force latest titles like Batman: Arkham City to utilize your PPU.
