All contemporary Nvidia solutions support PhysX, but in return some of the GPU resources are assigned to physics effects acceleration. Is it possible to avoid performance losses without adding more cards? EVGA’s answer is "yes". We in our turn will try to answer the question if there is an alternative for the owners of ATI Radeon HD solutions.
Performance in RPG
Fallout 3: Mothership Zeta
For the reasons we’ve repeatedly stated above, the EVGA GeForce GTX 275 CO-OP PhysX is somewhat slower than the other G200b-based solutions in this comparison. On the other hand, its performance is high enough for a comfortable play at any resolution including the rather exotic 2560x1600. We wouldn’t credit Nvidia or EVGA for it, though. It is rather the game developer’s merit that Fallout 3 has such modest system requirements and runs at a playable speed even on the humble Radeon HD 5770 (which also needs far less power than its more advanced opponents, by the way).
