    Hi all does anyone here get sli to work?
    I'm running a 670 gtx and managed to buy another one off a mate for £50
    So I thought I try sli and what a joke
    With one card I get around 80fps most maxed out and it's nice and smooth put the other card in and bang down to 20-30 fps with no HDR other things turned down and just not looking smooth
    Same with asseta corsa drops the fps like mad when using sli
    The only game I've seen it work well on is arma3 and when I say works well I get about 10-15 fps increase
    I'm running on 3 screens 5790x 1080 I think

    So is sli a waste of time and money ?
    Or have I missed something?
    Cheers

    Something's wrong there. I get ~120 fps at Lime Rock with two 670s with most details on High or Full, shadows and reflections off/low, HDR off and multiview on. It drops to about 60 fps when I start adding the eyecandy like full shadows and reflections. AC runs fine on my system as well.

    What are your system specs? Particularly Motherboard and the exact models of the two cards.

    Triple screen and SLI is +/- ok

    but for single screen users: There is no gain in SLI: turn it off or enable SLI and enable physx to the other card.

    It's not up to ISI to fix it. But it is up to nvidea to make a better SLI profile.
