3DMark11 no SLI.
3DMark11 does not support SLI out of the box for some odd reason.
Is this a driver issue as usual? ATi Xfire works.

One way I've found to get SLi to work is to set "Force Alternate Frame Rendering 2" in Nvidia Control Panel... But this seems to cause major stuttering and flickering.

Already tried, does not work.
Edit: Apparently it does work when you change it in global settings, but I am too getting the flickering.

Did you set it in the 3DMark 11 Profile or the Overall Settings? The profile settings don't seem to work anymore.

SLI is NOT supported in 3dMark 11 yet. I have 3 580s in SLI and it does NOT work. I have been online with the Futuremark reps all morning. They have been very helpful and here is a direct copy and paste of the repsonse:

FM_Jarnis, (Official Rep), commented 7 minutes ago
This is NVIDIA driver issue. Reportedly leaked 265.xx Quadro drivers with modified inf does work in SLI but there are currently no official ones. This is NVIDIA issue, we don't make the drivers. NVIDIA has had access to 3DMark 11 builds for quite a while through BDP.


There ya go, nice job NVIDIA. ATI crossfire works fine. THANK YOU!!!

That 265 driver does not work for me, the driver keeps crashing after install.
Same thing as with a lot of others I read on Guru3D forums.

The v263.09 WHQL drivers I have installed already contain a profile for 3DMark11. They have a SLI compatibility flag value for DX10 of 0x08000F5 according to NVIDIA Inspector but no SLI compatibility flag value for the other entry (presumably DX9). Since 3DMark11 is obviously a DX11 benchmark I'm guessing that the DX10 value does not enable SLI although only having one card means I cannot test it. If you have SLI, you might want to download and install Inspector and manually enter the DX10 SLI value to see if that works.

So I heard Nvidia had access to 3DMark11 for quite a while now.
This is very sloppy, and bad news for nVidia.
Nvidia just brought out 2 new videocards, and no SLI support in the biggest new benchmark is definitly going to hurt the reviews.

From the EVGA forums, they are saying Nvidia is working out a graphics bug when SLI is enabled. A profile will be available come next driver release.

There is also a problem in SLI builds where the sysinfo is overwritten and corrupts Vantage. Basically, try running Vantage after 3dmark11...artifacts, tearing and some people cannot even run it. Pinto (FM Forums) has a possible fix:

PINTO:
"The problem appears on sli rig only but there is a solution!
It solve the combined test problem on sli setup too:

-download Nvidia inspector
-click on the button near the driver name
-it open a new screen
-in the first group of keys modify the SLI compatibility bits(DX10) from 0X00000000 to 0X008000F5
-apply change
-run your bench as usual

for me it works great increase the combined test from 10fps to 40 and run Vantage great artifact free"

Unusual this for nVidia to be behind the curve on 3dmark.... my guess is that the bug was what we call a "Show stopper"
