You sure you don't have your screenshots reversed? It looks like you've got a much higher minimum FPS with the 9600 enabled. :confused:

nope
, as you can see the pic for without the 9600 says just 1 GPU


hmm the score is higher with the 9600 but when i was running it it showed higher FPS without the 9600, im sure of it


any newer benches i can try?


EDIT: just to note even though the 9600 is on a PCIe 8x bus the 480 is not running on 8x, its still on 16x according to GPU-Z

For the sake of comparison:

GTX 480 with PhysX enabled on a 9800 GT

GTX 480 with PhysX enabled on it

All settings in the NVIDIA control panel were left at their defaults. The 9800 GT in my system is also running on a PCI-E x8 bus on account of it being in the bottom slot on my eVGA X58 motherboard.

so this means a dedicated nvidia physx card DOES benefit a 480 despite what everyone else thinks/says

For those with a single 480, yes. Can't comment on 480 SLI setups, but we have several well established and respected members of this forum who say it doesn't help them. I would certainly take their word for it. I'd love to drop an extra $700 on a second 480 and a new PSU to verify, but I don't think my Antec Three Hundred case could handle it. :o

Here is how my 470 did! The highest my GPU got was 37% during this test.

Going to stick the 8800GTX in now.

My 9800GT that I was using as a physx card didn't help my SLI setup. Once the 256 drivers come out if the cards are working harder I may reinstall the card and test it some more.

On my system (HD5870) having a 8800GTX sure helps :p

Here is the score when I run the benchmark. Please notice that I am running at the resolution of my monitor, 1080p.

OUCH!! Took a big hit with 8800 installed! Happy to see the 470 stayed in 16x with my 8800 in the 4X slot. Oh well I guess I can sell my card now!

Something is not right with your stats??? Of course ATI does not support Physics at all so thats probably why the 8800 scores so much better!
