Just received a ASUS MATRIX HD 7970 Platinum from NewEgg today – I haven’t had much time to play with it but I’ve got it up to 1.216 GHz without any voltage tweaking (will mess with the TweakIT buttons next)…more to come. I plan on doing some research on hybrid PhysX with this card (using a […]
Dedicated PhyX PPU / GPU Shoot Out: GT 640, GTX 650, GTX 650 Ti, and GTX 680 – paired with a GTX 690.
I’m back – this time pairing my GTX 690 with several Kepler card variants to determine the best PhysX PPU for the buck. The test beds: Borderlands 2 and FluidMark. Test Rig Details: i7 3820 @ 4.5 GHz (1.40v) / EVGA GTX 690 (1148 MHz boost, +400 Memory, 135% Power) / 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 […]
Just received my EVGA GTX 650 Ti SSC – $160, 768 CUDA cores (dedicated PhysX monster!), and a free copy of Assassin’s Creed III for PC FTW! Interesting to note that it is basically 1/2 power of a GTX 680 (illustrated by a GPU-Z screenshot of the GTX 690 – but you get the idea)! […]
To continue my investigation of PhysX performance with Borderlands 2 I decided to take a look at how an SLI rig would benefit from having a dedicated PhysX PPU / GPU such as the GT 640 (a winner in my last set of tests when paired with an overclocked GTX 680). So, I took my […]
I’ve been playing Borderlands 2 quite a bit recently (as I am sure many of you are). One thing that has really struck me with the game has been it’s great implementation of NVIDIA’s (now) proprietary PhysX. Being the PC extremist that I am, I decided to look into getting another GeForce card to supplement my […]
