    Apparently with the Big Bang II driver (R180) has a feature that allows u to dedicate one GPU as a PhysX gpu, while using your main GPU to, well the stuff you allways use it for.
    This could give a serious boost in certain games.

    I dont know if this feature will be available with the gfx combo MBP has.
    At the moment i don't think the driver works for mobile graphics, but one could hope for a mobile version.

    Heres a link

    It'd be a little more helpful if someone actually installed the drivers first then just speculating.

    The drivers aren't out yet. Not only that but both ATI and nVidia have often excluded notebook graphics cards from the main driver release so it could take quite some time for this to filter down to MacBook Pro owners. Nevertheless, this could be *very* interesting.

    I guess I should have mentioned LaptopVideo2Go builds. I'm interested in these rumored drivers as well. nVidia was a little late in delivering them but they do look promising.

    They are the same drivers. They just modify the inf file so you can install it on notebooks.
