NVIDIA crippling drivers to prevent PhysX with Radeon cards?

Posted on Monday, April 26 2010 @ 17:35:08 CEST by


Geeks3D spotted that the developer of an unofficial PhysX patch that allows an ATI Radeon graphics card (for 3D rendering) to be used with a GeForce card (for PhysX) has discovered that NVIDIA had sabotaged their drivers to prevent users from doing this:
A new version of the PhysX patch that allows a Radeon card (for 3D rendering) to be used with a GeForce card (for PhysX) is available.

If you read the release note there is a pretty shocking thing:

- added support for fixing a timebomb, introduced in 196.75 and 197.xx drivers (gravity reverse + overall slowdown after a few seconds of PhysX processing)

What ? NVIDIA has introduced a timebomb in their ForceWare / PhysX drivers to prevent the use of GeForce with a Radeon ?
