    get the patch from that ngohq thread, works great with the new drivers.

    Got my 4850x2 and 8800gts working perfectly together using the 190.xx drivers and the patch.

    This sucks.. damn.. Although we have 4-5Ghz i7's shouldn't this be like 'who cares' or is these something else behind why GPU should work with PhysX...

    With NV pulling this, AMD decided to announce Open Physics programming, which should enable physics programming for all companies, basically making Physx a non selling point on NV parts.

    i think messed with the ability to run these properly on cpu's. PhysX putsa real hurtin on a cpu. I think a 9500gt will run physx smoother then a i7

    Agreed. i7's are nice chips and all, but unfortunately Nvidia only likes PhysX running on their GPU's.

    Nvidia's in darkness without the proper light showing them the correct way. Very "nice" marketing scheme. At least microsoft is listening to consumer's opinion after a heavy setback with thier windows vista.

    wityh a dedicated physx gpu your cpu wont stress as hard. As said above physx puts a hurtin on the cpu and the fact that nvidia is doing what they are doing just proves how desperate some companies can be

    its not that they are desperate, its just that nvidia is really good at marketing, and good marketing = more money;) and money is good:cool:

    because NV loves when it only fires on 1 of 8 threads in a cpu ;) I think thats why the poster above you said he fixed that quote to say 1 of 4 cores.
