Need for Speed Most Wanted 2 SLI profile
  1 / 2    
Any chances from a SLI profile for this game? I use this settings, but each GPU works only 50-55%! :S [img]http://shadowdane.com/public/NFSMW_SLIProfile.png[/img]

This game is heavily CPU bound and due to how the game is programmed, you may actually see lower performance in SLI mode than single GPU for this game so we do not have plans to release an SLI profile for this game.

There are some games that need little if any support from the dev but in other cases there does. Some of the recent NFS games haven't supported SLI either. This isn't necessarily a result of lack of support by nvidia but a lack of support from the developer. The NFS series has largely turned into a straight console port sadly.

Doesn't seem to be a way to unlock past 60fps either yet.

I got into the Crysis:3 beta and it runs slow - 30 frames at medium settings .

I have to disagree with the moderator. I have the game and CPU utilization is very low, also if the CPU was so critical,then why is any quad core CPU the recommended spec, yet the GTX 560 is the recommended GPU? This game is currently running terribly on my GTX 560 SLI set up, and on many other machines better than mine. I'm running an i5 2400 too, so CPU should not be an issue. Criterion clearly needs to patch this as performance on machines far above recommended is terrible, and I can't see how an SLI profile wouldnt help. My single 560 is being pushed very hard and my CPU is not... how is that a CPU bound performance issue?

User Defected what is your setup? If you check my sig I have 680 sli and don't have performance problems. I played Arkham city with everything turned max with FXAA and I played with a average 100 fps. Borderlands 2 I was also able to max everything including physx set to high. There are a few spots in that game though that are un optimized and you will see gpu usage drop for no real good reason. With a little help I bet we can figure out why you aren't getting similar performance. This game is a bad example as its 60 fps locked and forcing in nvidia control panel doesn't seem to work. Sleeping dogs is a good example of a recent game that would take advantage of the setup. Also never forget you can turn on sli AA modes and all sort of goodies that you can usually force in a game even if it doesn't have sli working in it yet.

It's not CPU bound and it hogs up GPU power like no tomorrow. I humbly suggest you get on the profile, there are few games that would need one more than this.

Heavily cpu bound? really? So how is my 3960x at 4.5 GHZ causing 2 of my 3 680's to run at only 10% then? and still framerate drops to 30 or 40, Cmon, you just released a new driver for games that just came out, but not for most wanted?
