Oblivion SLI??

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi got a problem with getting sli to work with oblivion, works with everything else, and at slizone.com its stands that oblivion support sli, so the question is.. why cant I get it to work with oblivion? I have tried stock settings in the nvidia control panel, and split frame, alternate split frame 1 & 2... Something im doing wrong here?

Thanks

Maybe its just enabled but you can't tell the difference since even my 3850 has no problems with Oblivion at 1280x1024...

what is your Graphics card and to tell you the truth at that low of a resolution I dont know if you would see a great deal of a difference you really only see SLI shine at high Resolutions...

dual 8800gt`s... Getting fine fps, exept in some towns (like bravil) it gets down to 22fps :O but in the rest of the game there is plenty of fps But it would be nice to get some better fps in the towns That was one of the reasons I bought a second 8800gt

Hmm it would be nice to be able to fire up OB right now to see the in game setting lol

Alright this should help
Okay, open the NVIDIA Control Panel, and go View -> Use Classic NVIDIA Control Panel -> OK (if you're already using the Classic version, skip that step). The go Start -> Control Panel -> Display -> Settings -> Advanced -> *Your Card* -> Performance and Quality Settings. Select the Oblivion profile under "Active Profile". Then select "Advanced Settings" under "View". Scroll down until you get to "SLI rendering mode", and check that it's ticked. Then, select SLI multi-GPU on the left, and make sure the "Show GPU load balancing" checkbox is ticked.

If that's all as it should be (ticked in both cases), then try turning off SLI and see if your in-game performance drops. If it does, then you know SLI is working fine, even if the load balancing isn't showing.

Another thing - you can create a custom profile for Oblivion, and change what SLI setting is used. Click "Modify Profile" and save it under a new name, then scroll back down that list to "SLI rendering mode". Untick it, and a drop-down box will appear, allowing you to select which mode you want to use. See if changing that brings up the load balancing in-game.


You might also want to have a read of the NVIDIA Drivers thread in my signature - some interesting information in there about the latest NVIDIA Drivers, and why you shouldn't be using them...
