I actively tell my friends who wish to try multi-GPU horror stories about how much it sucks. It almost never worked properly with the exception of mostly older AAA titles, and even then not all of them.

When it did work, it usually introduced artifacts, poor scaling, stuttering/low minimum FPS, or any combination thereof. Or, in AC: Unity's case, it worked at first until Ubisoft released a mandatory patch that introduced godawful flickering. When I wanted to use all the extra power for downsampling on less-demanding/non-AAA games, it didn't work properly most of the time either. I guess it was good for Crysis 3 and 3Dmark and other ancient stuff.



And as a guy with a highly-clocked 980 Ti (at 1440p), I wholeheartedly agree with your recommendation for settings too. I turn down some stuff myself with my $700 video card, there's no shame in it. Maximum settings are maximum settings for a reason. Graphics settings in general are meant to be optional and give people tools to tweak to their liking, not "max on everything is mandatory". The sooner a PC gamer can realize even the most powerful processors on the planet are just math calculators that can easily be overburdened just by cranking up downsampling and tessellation to ridiculous levels in any game, the better off and happier with their hardware they will be.

All hardware has its limits. If you tell it to calculate everything under the sun with as much detail as possible (even if it's invisible), that's exactly what it will do. In PC gaming, choosing optimal graphics settings for individual hardware is the gamer's responsibility. Even if hardware vendors want to push certain settings to tank our FPS, they can't actually make us do it.

After all, isn't PC gaming about options?

I don't agree. I have had many configurations in sli and never had any of the issues mentioned. Never had tearing, stuttering, etc. In fact it allowed me to run many games maxxed out at full settings in surround at 5760 x 1080 without issue. You cannot do that on a single card. Constantly saw 90% gpu utilization in majority of titles

post #106 of 666

game is not out yet.

I think it is definitely possible to get 80fps on 1440p on a 980 Ti at high settings. Maybe you need to turn HBAO/Tesselation/Purehair a notch down.

Just turn down some settings and I am sure it will run the game just fine

I'd imagine a driver update from AMD will help too
