Greetings fellow pc enthusiasts!
I have been lately wondering if having a second GPU besides main graphics card would have any performance impact? Not sure if having a separate Physx GPU is trendy anymore, due how far the CPUs have evolved. My current PSU has 850W, and should be easily capable of handling two GPUs at once, but i'm unsure if the extra heat generation is worth it.

So in anycase, is the external PhysX optimized GPU an option anymore? Does it have any performance gains in certain tasks? Specs listed below. Thank you! <3

Specs:
CPU: i5-10400F @ 6-core / 4Ghz
GPU1: MSI GeForce RTX 2060 VENTUS GP OC
GPU2: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1650 Super
PSU: Corsair rm850x 80 plus gold
RAM: 32GB ddr4 @ 3200mhz

Not so much the CPUs as the GPUs themselves got fast enough that it didn't matter. As I recall, having dedicated PhysX GPUs was only a minor help in some games. These days I think it would just complicate matters.

Thank you for swift response! I recall such aswell. Since the way current windows 10 handles the multi-gpu allocation, it only seems to generate useless tempature and only serve more likely visual purpose at this point. Well i may just hand it over to someone that has some real use for it, its a decent medium card anyways. ;)
