View Full Version : Using onboard video to boost PCI-E?

25-03-2008, 02:06 AM
My buddy says his cousin tweaked his computer by using his onboard video bus to boost the performance of his PCI-E Graphics card, using your monitor on one, and your Alternate port on your card to hook to your Onboard Video, changing some settings apparently boosted his framerate and video performance, is this possible? and if so could someone tell me how it's done?

My PCI-E : Leadtek Winfast GeForce 7600GT
Onboard: MSI K8NGM2 GeForce 6150

Thanks for the laugh this morning!

Even if this was possible onboard video cards are pretty crappy when it comes to games so you would probably only get a few extra frames per second.
Wouldn't even be noticable.

Doesn't fit your description perfectly but..is it Nvidia's Hybrid SLI (http://www.nvidia.com/object/hybrid_sli.html)?

It's new and don't think it works for you...

He was probably using hybrid crossfire, yes nvidia have it soon but not yet, your cards are too old unforunately.
