SLI option not found - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
yea I didnt do that with the selector card. Now it works but I seem to be losing a lot of frame during game play. I got a 9000 benchmark on 3DMark06 but i lose about 15 frames on crysis and even more on COD4 compared to using a single card. Could it be because it only supports 8x SLI? I heard that the benifits of 16x SLI is only about a 15% improvement. So now im lost.

This board runs one slot at x16 or two slots at x8 but you should still notice an improvement.

Hmm...it makes me wonder if the 8600 makes use of the full x8? That's something I've been wondering for a while since I've toyed off an on with doing SLI on the cheap and getting another 8600GTS.

I dont know whats going on with the 8600GT. When I have it in SLI, i get less frames on medium settings than I do with a single card. I thought having 2 gpus would be better but I guess not. I also got less FPS when I tested with ATI tool. Kinda makes me mad.

Anyone else know what might cause to lose performance?
