Hi, just a quick question.

It might sound silly, but as I've never owned a PhysX card before I don't really know.
If I use a 750 Ti as a dedicated PhysX card, does it still boost clock? Or is there any other quirks?

I just don't happen to know if PhysX cards still boost and just wanted to check.

Thanks for any help.

A good way to test is to run a gamer that is using GPU accelerated PhysX while having GPU-Z running in the background. After a little while check GPU-Z for clock speeds and usage on that card.

It should boost when it is under load, but it's kind of pointless since the 750Ti is way overpowered for PhysX as it is.
