It can also be the game being just released and may need updates for SLI / Crossfire glitches. Same for Nvidia/ATI drivers.
You cant tri sli with a 690 and 680 with nvidia.
That is only amd you can do with.
No reason to make the cpu to do the physx.

Not sure where to start so ill hit a few high points.
1. Quad SLI on 1080p with those cards = wasted money
2. Quad SLI is not gaming friendly
3. Borderlands 2 is nowhere NEAR intensive enough to warrant a built in benchmark.
I mean, its DX9 based and even my 480 sees just over 60% usage and a rock solid 60fps with everything maxed @1080p.
4. Nvidia probably doesnt have an SLI profile for Borderlands 2 yet(unless im mistaken. it has been a while since I read release notes)
5. GTX680 for PhysX is also wasted money.

Lastly, if that rig is only getting you 120fps on Metro 2033, you probably have a bigger problem somewhere.

Exactly what I'm getting, sometimes low 40's and 30's. Feel free to visit my thread over at EVGA

Worst thing is GPU utilization is very low.

1. Let me worry what I do with my money.
2. Agreed.
3. With high physx it is extremely demanding as my rig proves.
4. You are entirely wrong.
5. I had an extra one lying at home and was not able to sell it.

Lastly, please enable advanced DOF and Physx and see what you get. At 120 fps it is a very high score. Would suggest you run the benchmark and revert with your results.

Forgive me if my reply is unrelated, but I do believe it is an issue with having multiple graphics cards. The game is harder to max out than borderlands 1 for sure, but I was getting 6-80 FPS on my setup, and using a single card fixed all my problems for the moment, Including not activating physx. Now my problem is slightly unrelated because of course I'm using an entirely kind of video cards, save my physx card, but still, I'd try out your luck with just your 680 on that rig and see if there's a noticeable difference. thumb.gif

Agreed, not sure why people are telling you that's it's a waste. Whatever makes you happy is all that matters. Also the recent drivers that Nvidia released (306.23) are suppose to be optimized for Borderlands 2.

You probably have to wait for an improved driver like I am. With the beta driver I get 120fps plus in eyefinity but the driver is unstable. For now I make do with a slower but stable driver. I have to say though that's a lot of gpu for one screen.

If you hit the "multi" button at the bottom of posts and then hit quote, you can quote multiple people in one post. I believe OCN prefers it that way.

As for #3, Techspot would disagree with that statement. It's not to say that their results are absolutely indicative of what people should be seeing, especially since there is some vagueness in their methodology, but if a single 680 (no extra PPU as in your case) can get 60fps at 1080p at max in-game settings, with a 3960X at 3.3GHz, your rig technically should chew up the game. The fact that you're experiencing poor performance on your rig doesn't prove anything.

Remove the second 690 and the 680 from the system, do a clean driver install (in case that means something different to you, uninstall and then do a driver sweeper run in safe mode), and run the game again with physx run through the GPU. See if anything changes.

Also, where do you live that you couldn't sell a 680?

The Techspot review is a mess. It shows nothing. It is a very subjective methodology that they have employed.

I have done a clean install and tried all combinations. Kindly go through earlier posts before posting. Tri sli, quad sli, standard sli everything has been tried and also physx dedicated GPU, physx on CPU yada yada yada. The game is not performing the way it should. Pure and simple.
