Is it just not enough? - Page 4

post #31 of 46
When I'm running sli It'll go from 30-100 FPS. With one card as Physx it'll stay around 60-80FPS. So I would suggest to update to the lastest Mafia 2 update, on the demo I'd go from 20-70 fps with both sli/Physx.

Perhaps and just perhaps your processor is not getting the most out of these 2 cards. People getting huge fps in SLI might have an I7 at 4Ghz or so

Like some people said. Just let 1 card do PhysX and you should get the best performance on this game

but my quad is the same as an i7 860 clock for clock...it shouldnt be holding these cards back in games...only benchmarks...

i contacted Nvidia and they agree that it's very weird, so they have someone working on it.

does anyone know where i can get the latest update outside of steam??

Wack a dedicated physx card in your system if there is room. Like someone said above it will take a lot of pressure of your cpu and then will run more smoothly.

All settings maxed, PhysX ON using the 8800 = 25 FPS average
All settings maxed, PhysX ON using the 260 = 19 FPS average.(8800 was idle)

yeah, but this still doesn't seem right. why are people getting such high fps with a 460 yet i can't get that with 560 sli??

It's not just about clock speed. The I7 setup and older Q setup are two different breeds. Not just talking about the cpus, the motherboard chipsets and ram make a difference.

I think your setup just can't handle the 570's. That's just me.

i've got 2 560s not 570s, and i don't see any sort of bottleneck because of processor in any other game. none...also i just got their latest 267 drivers yesterday, and it didn't actually help...

does nobody else find it weird that people with a single 460 on a C2Q platform get 40 fps, yet I can't get 30 with Sli 560 on a C2Q platform. At this point motherboard and RAM shouldnt matter...a faster and better card should do better than a single older card on the same platform...if not better than at least the same...i can't even get the same
