Of course, different engines load differently and it's possible that one is more "SLI-optimized" than the other is.

Usually if it's memory then you'll be seeing similar artifacts to a card that's overheating. Either that or full blown crashes. My guess is it's a software issue - either driver or game.

PhysX is set to automatic, so that's up to the driver/ game profile to decide I suppose. It very well could be optimization and/ or software. I'll run DDU tonight and reinstall latest drivers to test if it is still persistent.

You can always set PhysX to CPU manually just to make sure it's out of the equation. Troubleshooting load differences between GPUs can turn into an endeavor in futility quickly IMO.

It seems like every other driver release NV breaks something that they had working well in order to fix something that wasn't. redface.gif

Very true, I'd rather keep my sanity. Maybe I'll just turn off OSD for a while and just play games and not worry about hardware vitals for a bit tongue.gif

Hey GTX980 owners,

We are having our monthly Foldathon from Monday 16th - Wednesday 18th - 12noon EST.
Would you consider putting all that awesome GPU power to a good cause for those 2 days? If so, come sign up and fold with us - see attached link.


October 2017 Foldathon

 

 

To get started:

1.Get a passkey (allows for speed bonus) - need a valid email address
http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/getpasskey.py


2.Download the folding program:
http://folding.stanford.edu/


Enter your folding name (mine is the same as my OCN name)
Enter your passkey
Enter Team OCN number - 37726


later
