Geforce Phsyx: 3DMark Vantage benchmarks
With the GT200 series, Nvidia also started the Geforce Physx. Officially the Geforce GTX 280/260, the Gefroce 9800 GTX and 9800 GTX+ are able to run physics calculation on the GPU. PCGh checked that out.
What's the benefit of Geforce Physx? 3DMark Vantage had to serve as the benchmark of our choice, because it already supports the new mode.
Additionally we used an 8800 GTS (G92) - officially this card is not supported but you can install the driver by using the system management, nevertheless. Results in advance: This card also gets a benefit from the Physx support, which of course is not as high as the GTX 280's.
For this benchmarks we compared the two driver versions 177.34 (without Physx support) and the new 177.39 (with Physx support). We did not change anything about the test system but the graphics cards.
