Quoting GenL, Hybrid PhysX mod creator

I‚??m seriously amazed‚?¶ seems like you are right! I just didn‚??t test it yesterday because i saw a user report saying otherwise on another site, but now i‚??ve tested it by myself on Windows XP and Windows 7 x64 ‚?? it really works ‚??out of the box‚?? with 257.15.

In Windows XP i‚??ve just extended the fake desktop, and on Windows 7 i created one non-extended ‚?? that‚??s all i needed to get GPU-PhysX working. And even more surprising ‚?? timebomb issue is gone too, at least for its normal time interval (~30 seconds in FluidMark).

Originally, Hybrid PhysX configurations were officially blocked by Nvidia (http://physxinfo.com/news/330/official-nvidia-position-on-hybrid-ati-nv-physx-configurations/) in Q4 2009.

What that‚??s ‚?? accidental mistake or permanent change, ticket to the bright future for Hybrid PhysX systems ?

Positive results: #1 (http://www.ngohq.com/graphic-cards/17706-hybrid-physx-mod-v1-03-a-12.html#post93994) |
