Nice! I don't run SLI, but I'm sure there'll be other (minor?) benefits for 970 users.

Thanks for the info. :)

 

Rob's gonna love it! ;)

Really looking forward to see what SLI will do for performance. We must remember though that P3D still is more CPU than GPU intensive but this sure is great news and very nice to see how we as a community was able to make a company such as Nvidia listen to us!

Fantastic! Can't wait for this, recently went sli 970s, looks like it was worth it now! Hopefully p3d will be as smooth as my other sims!

Anyone have any idea what to expect for performance change on P3D?

 

I've never run an SLI setup

I've been running a glommed together SLI for quite a while and have been very happy with the results. An "official" profile will be extremely welcome.

 

Jumping up and down in anticipation..........

Good to hear Vic

You still running locked @ 20?

Any new comments on the benefits of SLI in your setup?

Will be curious to see how it performs with P3D and if it will be worth going out and buying another GTX 970.....Glad to hear that Nvidia and LM are starting to work together :rolleyes:

I wonder if SLI will primarily help when running multiple screens or high resolution such as 4K or if will also give a considerable overall boost.

 

I've never used an SLI setup so if I was to go for it would I need to find a second graphics card of the exact same model I have today or are you able to use different models?

Phew, better late than never.

 

Time to order 2 more Titan X's -- it'll be interesting to see how it scales.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Can anyone comment on what the benefits are for SLI for P3D?

 

Is it mainly to more consistently maintain given frame rate rather than actually gaining in overall FPS?

 

(conceptually of course as I know the official profile is not out yet)

Feel free to order a few extras....maybe one will fall off the back of the UPS truck near my house...

This is great news!

 

I would imagine most users will be able to see a noticeable improvement in visual fidelity due to being able to turn up the visual dials and provide even more smoothness to the sim.

Yup - still at 20. I find no need for more. Nothing new, still happy with it but VERY interested to see how the :official: profile compares to mine.

Wow!  3 titan x's

Agree, will be interesting to see what the "official" nVidia profile can do for single card performance also -- who knows, might see some AA improvements and z-bias improvements and overall performance improvements.

 

My cautious side kicked in, just ordered one more Titan X (not two) ... want see how well it scales with 2-way SLI before I attempt 3-way SLI.  As I recall 3-way SLI appears to be the best return on investment IF the application scales well.

 

Either way it's good news for single and multi-GPU setups.  It's refreshing to see end user community persistence and LM's efforts did eventually payoff ... achieved what Microsoft couldn't.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Can we have lights back too with the next nVidia drivers since they are throwing out SLI profiles like Willy Wonka?  :)   Guess I'll need to snag a second GTX 980 too.

Agree Rob, this is what I'm hoping for :P

That's what is expected from SLI in general, always depend on the game.

Thx. Yeah I've seen that link before but the reason I'm asking this group is because it's interesting to me that people that have been using SLI already are reporting basically no frame rate increase which is not what you expect in just about every other SLI situation recorded.

 

Hopefully an official profile will help with that.
