    In your NV control panel, you can select which card does PhysX, but by default, it is set to let the driver select automatically.

    3DMark 11 does not use PhysX for anything. Depending on your settings it may show as secondary card on 3dmark.com when viewing result details but in any case it doesn't influence the score in any way.

    3DMark 11 physics tests use DirectCompute (DX11) for GPU physics and that happens on the main card.

    thanks for the info
    but ,being that a lot of gamers use seperate phyx cards ,you would think that futuremark would use it

    I would disagree - it is not "a lot".

    Also as long as it is a single vendor technology, it makes it incompatible with the goal of benchmarking various graphics cards. Everything that PhysX does on the GPU can be done with DX11 and DirectCompute, in a way that works on all DX11 cards, not just NVIDIA.

    Vantage uses PhysX, use that to get a bigger e-peen
