Nvidia 320.18 Drivers, no SLI option

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It's a long time since I've gone SLI, I've usually just bought one power house for handling games.

However since GPU's have kind of stagnated over the past couple of years I deiced to just buy another 580 instead of investing in a 7970.

My question is, with the new drivers (320.XX) there's no longer an option in the Nvidia Control Panel to enable/disable SLI...so how am I meant to know it's enabled? confused.gif

Have they decided to include an auto detect and auto enable option with the new release?

Hey IcedEarth,

I think there's some other thing wrong with your system. I am running 320.18 drivers with 2x GTX 580 and the SLI config page is where it should be, nVIDIA did not make any changes to that.

When I look at the product page for your Motherboard (http://www.gigabyte.de/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3651#sp) I do find support for AMDs Crossfire, but not for SLI. Is it possible, that you cannot run an SLI configuration on this motherboard ?

Here, the UD5 version to compare: http://www.gigabyte.de/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3647#sp
This one includes Support for SLI

Greetings,

slimex

Edit:
I just found this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/670810/howto-sli-on-a-non-sli-motherboard-gtx5xx-compatible-1-0-final-released
Perhaps you find a solution there

You raise a good point, sir!

I didn't think to check for native SLI support as I assumed it would support both, like the rest of the UD series. You know what they say about assumptions. tongue.gif

Replacing my motherboard was the next step anyway, due to the second GPU only running at 4x. I guess I need to do this quicker than anticipated.

Many thanks for pointing out the terminal flaw in my plan. smile.gif
