How Can I Turn Off SLI using NI surround and 3 Monitors

Recommended Posts

HI All P3DV2 lovers,

 

 

 

Reading recently some of the P3D advice on V2, the suggestion is to disable SLI as one would be worse off with it enabled.

 

 

 

When I get home from work I'll get a chance to investigate my nvidia settings, but what comes to mind this second is I think because I use 2 X 680s with 3 30in monitors and NI surround giving me a resolution of 6044X1080 it is not possible to disable SLI. 

 

 

 

 

Anyone shed some light on this for me and how I can use V2 with the image spanned across 3 monitors without SLI?

 

 

 

 

thanks

In the Windows software ( desktop right mouse click ) disable all extra monitors.

Then in the Nvidia software you can choose surround without SLI.

 

Keep in mind dat you cannot run FSX/P3D as one wide view, but as seperate windowed screens.

Adding a view to each extra screen will cost you 30-50% fps.

mmm thanks for the reply,

 

I think I would prefer to have the view spanned across all monitors rather than windowed. I shall experiment with that. So thanks.

No you can't run surround and disable SLI..   "Activate All Displays" is not surround. It's 3 individual monitors acting as 3 individual monitors.  Surround is 3 individual monitors acting as one single monitor.  By the nature of how surround works with two cards (requiring 1 monitor hooked up to the second card) there is no way to get around the SLI having to being turned on with surround requirement. 

 

Well.. I lie.. You could unbridge your cards, get a Display Port > DVI or HDMI > DVI adapter and run surround on a single card.  :lol:
