No SLI in Dragon Age?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
If SLI isn't working for you in this game (which it did not for me: Core 1 was hitting 80C, while core 0 was in the 50's), it appears you can rectify this problem by renaming the .exe (the main one in the bin file, not the launcher.exe) to MassEffect.exe, and it works perfect.

Of course, you need to run this file directly, as the launcher app will break if you do this.

Since I did this, both my cores now run within a degree or two of each other.

Not that the game is particularly hard to run (at least not so far, I'm only in the Wilds for the first time) but I've got AA maxed in-game (8x) with TR-SSAA and 16xAF (in NVCP) at 1920x1200 and it's never dropped below 60fps.

That must be nice

This is only making the idea of running an sli setup for folding and gaming on my sig rig that much more interesting

nvidia will probably add SLI support for it in the next driver version as they usually do

Oh, I'm sure it'll be fixed in the next driver. This is an interim measure that does work, though

And yeah, rewind ... running SLI (or x-fire) will definitely make your life more, uh ... interesting, that's for sure. If you wanna be constantly wondering whether or not you're getting the performance you paid for ... if you like running on-screen displays and analyzing what's going on, and doing so on a regular basis ... if you like to be tinkering with re-naming files and stuff like that? Then multi-gpu is awesome ...

Interesting ... yeah ... that's a good word for it

I'm gathering by your tone that these settings I speak of are not do-able on your system?
