ATI HD 5870 + NV GT 220 In-Depth PhysX Benchmarks

soothepain over at the coolaler.com forums(translated) has posted an impressive set of PhysX benchmarks. Using the ATI HD 5870 and a Nvidia GT220 for dedicated PhysX using the ATI/Nvidia PhysX hack, sooththepain used several Nvidia PhysX demos and the CryoStasis PhysX Benchmark and Batman Arkham Asylum to answer the question of weather or not a dedicated Nvidia PhysX card really makes a difference.

from the coolaler forums:

ATI + NVIDIA Shuangjian merger speculation in recent hot, simple to say that ATI card with an NVIDIA card, so ATI’s cards can also enjoy the PhysX physics acceleration effect.
Of course, NVIDIA would like to see this is not because of PhysX, but tactics used to bind the game, which, under the main video card with ATI operations, with a low-end NVIDIA graphics cards can also open the PhysX hardware acceleration, but this is not the officially recognized, you must use the Patch file to crack.

As for the crack of the way, the Forum has published within the monkp, here is no longer details, please refer to the following link.

Generally use this method mostly ATI’s high-end cards can run with a low-level physical speed of the NVIDIA card, if the two cards are roughly the same performance, and that really lacks significance on the. ATI HD5870 NVIDIA GT220。 The following tests are used ATI HD5870 with NVIDIA GT220.

    seriously,
    Nvidia pays big amount of cash to ensure that their PhysX comes in many games. This ruins the gameplay for ATI Cards. :( example: try playing Metro 2033 with 2x Radeon HD 5970, you'll get get 10 fps because ATI doesn't support PhysX.

    At the moment, ATI leads on the graphics cards market with price and prestation, but Nvidia ruins em with their PhysX
