SLi option broken in latest drivers.
So, I have the following set up:

Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD5-B3 Socket 1155
Graphics Cards: 2x Gigabyte Geforce 560ti GV-N560UD-1GI

...and on the old drivers (approx. rev. 285 and below) the SLi works absolutely fine.

However, on latest drivers, firstly the text for the SLi set up in the control panel is broken:

Working around this by selecting the blank space brings up the menu, and SLi is disabled.

Then selecting SLi from the menu and enabling it, clicking apply, the config switches back to disabled.

No error messages, no warnings, no reports or logs of an issue.

This doesn't happen in older drivers - r.280 or less - but does in latest.

So far, I've gotten nothing back from Nvidia support.

I am a games developer, and as this is now starting to impact on work I do outside of the office, I've begun to raise it through dev support channels and with other games developers through various private forums to see if we can get at least a response from Nvidia.

Do any Nvidia techs/CSAs browse these forums?

Thanks.

you will see some replies from Nvidia techs but due to the fact this is called a user forum they are not obligated to reply to any post.
Nvidia has a section on their site that you send in a hardware tech issue. this forum was created for us user's to help each other.
to the op your problem is a common one that I have seen posted under the driver section of the forums here, i myself have not had that problem so i have no suggestions for you but you might find some help in the nvidia driver forum as it is a driver problem. /thanks.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thanks:' />

SLi is once again alive.

Get the v.301.24 beta drivers.

The v.290~ drivers are basically junk.
