Phys x on a GPU during SLI mode or CPU?

While having dual graphics cards is SLI Mode, would it be better to have phys x process on one of the GPU's or CPU?

You do know Phys X has been dead for quite a few years right? Having the one and one really does nothing anymore, and most games do not scale with GPUs. If this was 2006-2012 maybe, but its been quite some time since having a phys X card was actually a thing.

 

Id suggest just testing whether or not SLI actually improves your performance, rather then adjusting that kind of setting. Make sure they are actually getting utilization. Other then that make sure your settings in both Nvidia Control  Panel and in game are set correctly, as some games can also be a bit finicky for SLI.

PhysX?

Any modern system should easily be able to run games from the era when PhysX was a thing. 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

SLI and PhysX are both basically dead now, but PhysX should always be run on a GPU. CPU PhysX has never been a good idea under any reasonable circumstances.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Stuck to SSE2 instructions and on 1 CPU core, purposely done.
