XPS 1730/Dual 8700M and PhysX 8.6.12


Recommended Posts

I noticed in the news section the release of the Ageia PhysX 8.6.12 Driver.

Has anyone had any luck or tried to use this updated driver without the new 177 Nvidia Drivers?

The latest version I was able to find prior to this version was 7.11.13.

The earliest version of the Nvidia drivers which supports PhysX is 177.3x. Also, you must use the 8.x PhysX driver to enable GPU PhysX. However, your GPU is currently not supported by the GPU PhysX system. It will be supported soon, however.

im just using the new physx drivers on my 1730.

its not possible to activate nvidia physx in it, duo the reason that we got 8700/8800 cards in our 1730.

but if u got an physx card in, u can use the new driver anyway.

then the ageia physx card could be selected in the gui,

no mather if u installed the 177.39+ driver or an older one.
