Double poster!

Here is 16xQ CSAA + 4x Supersample at stock, everything else is maxed out (no ubersampling).

Guys, i still have a problem with it.
I have SLI GTX 580 ASUS and only 25 fps in ubersampling. I tried different drivers, tried that solution. Still that crappy FPS.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

am i have to use 275 beta drivers for this SLI fix?
I reverted back to whql drivers and re-applied the fix and it started working again.

Also...the fix works with 0x02C04A05, 0x02C04305 and a few others for some reason. Still light bleeding though. =/

The sli fix is the only thing that makes the SLI GPU usage 99%, the beta drivers still have my usages at 60%, just 10% from old ones. Nvidia needs to get on their game and do WORK!

I love the performance of the sli fix, but HATE THE LIGHT BLEED!

The light bleed is the only glaring downside, and I haven't seen a fix for it yet. It's particulary annoying in Chapter 2 with the sun (to the point I would meditate to midnight to bypass it). I haven't tried Patch 1.1 yet since beating the game a few days ago - anyone know if there is still light bleed? I'm awaiting the next Nvidia beta driver for a real Sli fix.

As for this SLI fix not working for some people, all I can think is the game version affects it; e.g. GOG vs Steam vs retail. More specifically: DRM or no DRM.

worked great! using 266.58 drivers (haven't updated in a long time)

with max settings the game looks BEAUTIFUL. sometimes its almost real. specially the buildings and the use of depth of field.

Well, I spoke too soon earlier. I also have the uber-annoying light bleed thing going on with the solution in this thread. I'm thinking I'll go back to the nV profile and see if I can get by with the reduced performance, seeing as how I'm running at about 70% usage on each card (w/v-sync) with the game maxed aside from ubersampling ... probably can keep fps over 60 okay even w/o the "great performance but buggy lighting SLI fix" in this thread.

The supposed light bleed fix on NeoGAF doesn't work for me, in fact the nV profile already uses AFR2 mode anyways.

EDIT: Played using the regular nV profile (the one in 270.61) last night. I do get some dips below 60fps (like to 50-ish) occasionally even w/only like 70% usage, but it's still highly playable and there's no light bleed. Think I'll stick with this for now, hopefully nV comes up w/a better profile over time.

Couple things. One, there are some new drivers out. I installed them, and they didn't make a difference at all, lol. Maybe it will be different with other people.

Two, forcing AFR2 through Nvidia inspector does kill the light bleeding, but it undoes any performance gained by the fix. Might as well just put the profile back to default in that case.

I was hoping by looking through the net, someone would have discovered a fix for the light bleeding, without killing the performance gained by the fix. I guess I'll need to put up with it like someone poking me with a stick.

With the latest patch, I'm going from a smooth 40 FPS with fix to a smooth 60 on high. Ultra is still out of reach at 14 T_T

Edit - Has anyone tried out the latest 275.33 drivers? I want to see if I can squeeze out a bit more FPS.

I saw absolutely no improvement what so ever with the new drivers. Still geting 50-60% gpu usages in SLI. Only the inspector fix makes y gpus 99%.

I get such great performance with that fix, but its like haveing sex with helley berry while she shines a lazer in your eye and burning your cornea..... Its kind of stupid.
