Hello all!

I finally broke down and purchased this sim. I am currently running an SLI system and was wondering if there are any settings I need to tweak to get the most out of my SLI configuration - example: change value or add perameter(s) to a config.ini file.

Your input is much appreciated

ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe Motherboard
16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3
2x MSI Geforce GTX570 Frozr III Power Edition in SLI
1 OCZ 120GB Vertex 3 MI SSD

SLI doesn't work, your best to disable your other card. Luthier as said that SLI is working and that Nvidia would include a profile in its next driver release but we have had two driver releases's since that statement and no profile. By all accounts its the same with crossfire. Dont expect a quick fix because they are claiming it is fixed.

Crossfire works if you do the usual tinkering and tricks involved with getting it to work with a game that hasn't got a driver profile. Some people have reported that the fullscreen mode used has an impact on performance (positive or negative) so you just have to play around with it to get it to work.

Some custom profiles or profiles from other games do increase SLI performance - might be a workaround that works for you until SLI is enabled properly:

Thanks for the link, Jimbop -- works great. Before my two cards were working at roughly 80%/20% -- now it's virtually 50/50. smile

Thanks for the feedback, Snapper. SLI seems to be working for most people to some degree so I think I'll pick up another GTX480 some time and have a go.
