Sorry, I meant to ask if it works on a GTX275.
Haven't been able to find an answer to that...
Anyone know?
What Quadro driver should I try?

Also, would it be worth the effort to try this out with a 9500GT?

I remember this back in the day, with the 4000 series cards.

Could it work on a 275 or a 9500? sure. Is it worth it? Only if you use your 275 as a workstation card. Its not going to magically make Crysis better.

All it would appear to do is optimize the drivers to utilize the card differently then what gaming requires. But thats all in the article itself, so I'm only rehashing what they are saying.

The plan is to make it more of a workstation card.
If that's possible I'd really like to try it out.
Any suggestions as to what driver I should try?

Would it be worth my effort to mod the 9500GT even though I have a GTX275?
Could I use the two together effectively?
I've thought of trying it as a dedicated Physx card, but don't know if it'd do much.
