Batman AC with 8800gt didicated Physx
Hi all,

I installed an old 8800gt as dedicated physx card along with my 570gtx, hoping to boost the performance in Batman AC. To my disappointment, the FPS got slightly lower than when using a single card. This was surprising seeing that the load on the main card was reduced to about 60% during gameplay. Is the 8800gt simply too weak to handle physx in this game?

The 8800gt isn't fast enough to be used as a physx card with a gtx 500 series card, it's simply too slow, if you want a dedicated physx card it is best to buy a last generation card with at least half the amount of cuda cores of you main card.
