Default Re: Sparkle Low-Profile Geforce GTS 250 1Gb for Dedicated Physx

Even Fluidmark, a Physx benchmark, isn't that great because for one, it slowly ramps up the physx load, which makes the first 30 seconds of the benchmark totally throw off the rest of the results by starting off with a CPU\GPU bottleneck... plus, its just not complex enough. With my GTS 250 at stock clocks the minimum FPS in Fluidmark tends to be in the 130fps range.

Does anyone know of a benchmark that I can run that has very little GPU load but does a massive amount of Physx processing?
Will Fluidmark even benefit from a Physx card?
