I don't think my SLi is working.....

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I just installed a second gtx 480, did the SLi patch, and everything appears to be functioning correctly. But when I run benchmarks, I get the same or similar scores as I did with my single gtx 480. For Example:

3Dmark06:
Gtx 480 - 19,298 (even better than my SLi run)
Gtx 480 SLi - 17,989

Mafia II:
Gtx 480 - 34.6 fps
Gtx 480 SLi - 37.9 fps

I am using the new Nvidia 260.99 drivers, did a clean driver install. I'm using SLiPatch v1.0 final. Please help....From things I'm reading, these scores seem low for a gtx 480 SLi setup. Am I doing anything wrong? Thanks for all your Help!

3DMark06 is CPU dependent, try 3DMark Vantage. What SLi Patch version are you running?

Version 1.0 (final)

And I would love to try Vantage, but the copy I bought from Futuremark isn't working anymore. It's missing benchmark.dll. I e-mailed them, but have yet to hear back.

You can enable the sli-bar in nvidia control panel. Or you can download Nhancer and it has the sli-bar in it.

^this.

Enable the ''SLI Visual Indicator'' and run a few games.
The green vertical bar on the left of the screen should moves up and down as SLI scales. The longer the bar gets, the better is SLI scaling at that moment.

Ok, updated to drivers 266.35. SLi Load Bar activated, and working.

3DMark Vantage Scores:
P28,117

CPU - 38,255
GPU - 25,835

All on stock settings. How are these scores? Are they correct? Low? Thanks for the Help!!
