Multi - Gpu Rendering mode? Whats the highest setting for this feature?
What are the pros/cons of using this in games/applications ? I'm trying this out on a couple games just to see what happens if the games play smoother or get choppy lagged fps. So far TeamFortess2, MW3, etc works great but bf3 slows down can barely move with it on. I have it set to (4gpu alternate rendering 2).

All you're doing here is overriding the 'nVidia recommended' SLI setting and manually selecting which mode to use. In some cases, you might even be selecting the same mode that would have been used anyway.

In many games, you will find that it doesn't seem to make much difference which mode you use. For others, some modes may be substantially worse than others. I've rarely, if ever, found that any mode works better than the recommended one.

As far as I know it just changes the cards render sequence,
Ie, 1-2 / 3-4 .. to 2-4/3-1, 1-3/2-4 .. etc.

I've been meaning to play around with it and see if it lightens the temps on my top card by making another card the dominate render..
yet to do so tho.
