Reserved for tweaks and tips.


- How to disable GPU PhysX for nVidia users:

.Inside the graphics drivers (under the PhysX tab).

.Inside the benchmark, under options, check "disable PPU".

.If you use the latest version of the benchmark, "disable PPU" is checked by default. In other words you do not have to do any of the above if you use the latest version.


- Updating PhysX may result in better CPU score:
