Tri-SLI Fermi for Physx?
 
Which would be better for PhysX games? Tri-SLI GTX 480's or just SLI GTX480s's + GTX 260 for PhysX :)

Even a 260 for just physx is a waste imo... find a cheap used gts 250 or something.

That statement has nothing to do with the question asked, lol.

probably hard to tell right as no benchmarks have been released for the cards so we don't fully know what their capable of

I asked jAkUp what he recommended for physx with a pair of 480s and his response was a 250 or above.

yeah youll probably be set with a 260 all though if you have dual 480's why do you need a phsyx card?

I noticed a min fps increase in Cryostasis when I added the GTX 260 for dedicated PhysX with the Quad-SLI 295's.

Whats the Advantage of three GTX 480's, Higher AA ETC. settings, at higher resoulutions, :)Versus two GTX 480's.

I thought all the Classified boards could do Tri-SLI and PhysX.

It's possible, but the PhysX card would have to be single slot. Also, 1200w wouldn't be enough :lol:

I'm keeping one of my GTX260's for PhysX. Already sold the other. ATM there's not much gain to be had over a 8800GT for PhysX, but I'm sure in the future there will be games that can make full use of it.

Tri-SLi for sure! I mean every game that isn't using gpu-PhysX would benefit from having a third card(and that's a lot of titles). That way you'd get the best of both worlds. :)

Indeed. But it would mean swapping from a tri SLI bridge to a dual SLI bridge to use it for PhysX.
