Forcing SLI on non-SLI Games

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Primarily, Minecraft and Darkfall: Unholy Wars...

 

I've tried a few things I found around the web, but nothing works... Any suggestions?

I have got no idea how to force an SLI profile for these games dude but I seriously can't see either of them needing SLI with their extremely low system requirements. Considering they run on most mobile intergrated graphics cards, a single 660 seems more than enough.

 

is there any particular reason you need SLI for them?

Only thing I can think of would be a custom sli profile. Even then, if the game won't utilize the second card (doesn't support sli) I'm pretty sure you can't..

In darkfall with a single card, my FPS sits just below 60, so it's just enough to bug me LOL and with Vanilla Minecraft I have no issues, however FTB Packs cause my framerate to drop as low as 22...

Do you have V-sync enabled in either of them? Try forcing disabled V-sync in the Nvidia control panel?

 

Since minecraft doesn't natively support SLI, it doesn't have an SLI Profile as far as I know, try to force the frames to render on alternating graphics cards with SLI Rendering mode set to "Force alternate frame rendering 2" in the Nvidia Control Panel.

 

Other than those 2 things dude I'm all out of ideas sorry.

I do have v-sync disabled and FAFR2 makes no change whatsoever to my FPS.

 
 
Thanks for the help though :)

I don't know what engine Darkfall uses, maybe its own? But you can use a similar engine profile for games that that use that type of engine that don't have a specific profile.
For example an Unreal engine game that doesn't have a specific profile you can try to use a profile from a game that uses that engine that came out in the same year to try to get SLI to work.
