Hi there
Is it necessary to have "GeForce PhysX" enabled in the properties box when you are playing games that have no PhysX effects ?

Is there any advantage in leaving GeForce PhysX acceration enabled at all times ??

cheers

only advantage is not having to go into control panel and keep changing it all the time.

there is no performance hit leaving it on, if the game doesn't support physx

physx only works when the game actually uses it

To answer my own question I ran a couple of bench marks.

Crysis
1600 x 1200
8x AF
All settings High
No AA

33.89, 35.78, 35.79, 35.81

Exact same scores with and without PhysX.

GRAW 2 Mission 1
1600 X 1200
16 x AF
All Settings High

No PhsyX:
Heli Insert = 105 FPS
Mission Insert = 95 FPS
Running up first hill on left, over ledge, scout area around truck = 85-90 FPS

Extreme PhysX
Heli Insert = 65 FPS
Mission Insert = 55 FPS
Running up first hill on left, over ledge, scout area around truck = 45-50FPS

High PhysX:
Heli Insert = 95FPS
Mission Insert = 85 FPS
Running up first hill on left, over ledge, scout area around truck = 70-75 FPS

E8500
GTX 260
2gb RAM
XP Pro SP2
