Default Re: PhysX When SLI on Single

It's not a question of being "Dumb". The drivers do this to make SLI profiling work as seemlessly as it does. If you want dedicated PhysX. You wouldnt want SLI enabled in the first place.
I'm just mad that Sli in Batman with physx is so much slower than single card with physx. It doesn't make sense. 2 gtx280s should kick Batman's ass physx and all.
