I am now on a single card and I do not have hitman absolution so I cannot help you there. Can you try this out?

Also I did not see if it was mentioned, but make sure you are on the latest non beta drivers from nvidia.

Well I came across this which talks about the new and improved 310.70 BETA drivers and in the Updated SLI Profiles list it has Hitman so might give this a try. Anyone use the 310 drivers with good results?

Nvidia driver by default automatically determines when to use the second card and when not to, depending on the optimisation of whatever application you are running. You can work around this by going into nvidia driver and manually force alternate frame rendering (try either mode). This should ensure equal work load for each card and is a good way to test if your SLI setup is working correctly. From my experience however, you will get the best performance simply leaving it for the driver to decide.

1. Just go into Nvidia control panel.
2. On the left, go to 3D Settings --> Manager 3D Settings
On the right, click on the "programs settings" tab, or you can leave it on "Global Setting" if you want to use this setting for every game (highly not recommended).
3. Beneath that, under "Select a program to customise", find your game in the drop down.
4. Scroll down to the feature "SLI Rendering Mode", and change the setting by selecting either "force alternate frame rendering 1" or "force alternate frame rendering 2".
5. click ok, apply and exit, and run your game.

This usually gives you lower frames than leaving it on "nvidia recommended" in my experience, but you can try both mode 1, 2 and auto to see which one's the best.

^Thanks very much for that info Sashimi, I tried both modes and both resulted in very bad FPS as you mentioned and ended up leaving it in NVIDIA recommended BUT all of a sudden my SLI started to finally work with Hitman! Both cards are equally working together and my FPS increased so somehow it was a success. BUT about 5 mins into the game, the game started lagging bad, ran Fraps and I was only getting about 5 fps max.... Both cards still working but obviously unplayable..... It never ends. lol

No problems mate. Sounds like your cards are working fine only that the game itself isn't really optimised for Multi GPU. Nothing to worry about. Cheers.
