I cant run Vantage til i install Vista.I just set the card at 707/1524/1169 and got 18126.Thats almost as good as my 2x8800GTS's in SLI.My best with them was only 19177

Mothow,
The ORB postings are a bit confusing.
Based upon the deltas I see, it appears that you had a 61K 3DMark score, then implemented the Physix patch for the second, giving a CPU score of 5.4x higher, but the overall score was a "P"11K?
Could you explain the differences? is the "P" score just too high for Vantage? Or did you actually loose that much throughput (61K down to 11K) on the GPU side?

lol

Geritt, the 61K score is 3D Mark 2003


:D

And PhysX is not running on Mothow's system for his Vantage Performance score, as his CPU score is merely 8558 - mine is 27405 with PhysX enabled

:P

Ha ha!!

PhysX works fine for me, and plenty of others with Vista.

I reckon its user error
