HI guys! I have i7 4790k( stock), gtx 980 SLI g1 gaming, 8 GB ram, supernova 850W running on windows 8.1 with latest nvidia drivers. My performance is POOR and horrible and I have no idea what I can do. My GPU's load during gaming is near 50% on each core. My fps is 38- 55 sometimes 60. I have no ide why... My perfomance with single card is pretty the same. Do you know guys what can cause this situation? I watcher few gameplays on similar rigs and many guys have constant 60 fps. I tried "maximal perfomance" in nvidia panel...The same. My score in FireStrike is 18500 so I guess SLI works nice. Crysis 3 with maxed all never below 60.... so What is going on with AC unity?? Can Someone help me?? Maby HT in Haswell? Please share your opinions.

Peace!

hmmmm, honestly those fps are good. My GPU usage on one GTX970 I believe is 99%, never had issues (running at 40fps)

Hello,

Yah i noticed that when having 770 SLI, but i upgraded to single 970 , anyway try the newest Nvidia beta drivers 347.09, they were released today, they might contain an updated SLI profile.

Therer is a little bit better with latest drivers, but still performance with SLI is the same like with one card. While using single GPU it has high usage but while SLI MODE, both gpu's have low usage. I overclocked my gpu's and made fire strike tooday and my score is 18600 so it means that SLI works nice. Any SLI 9xx users here??

Hi guys. I am having poor performance with gtx 980 sli. I am looking for SLI users who can share about opinons.
What is your average fps, gpu's usage etc with SLI?? I have 50% usage on each core and performance is the same or maby worst then with single card.

Running at 1440p everything maxed no AA, i'm getting roughly 97 to 98 percent gpu usage on both cards , fps is around 70 fps to 100 + fps sometimes mostly on roofs and stuff, both my gtx 980 are running over over clocked and i'm running a 5960x @ 4.1 ghz latest nvidia drivers.

I'm scared to update to the new patch 4 as steam users say it's breaking sli :(

SLI works fine for me. Getting 50-60 fps at 1080p fully maxed out + 4xMSAA. GPU load is constantly 90+% on both GPUs. With no AA i'm getting like 70-80fps on average.

SLI flickering present in the game after patch 4. If you're running SLI then DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS PATCH!!

This is my poor performance and flickering with GTX 980 SLI. I have no idea what is going on wth this fps.
For example crysis 3 runs great...You can check it on my chanel.

Crysis 3 runs great. Check my chanel... :/

Another thing. Why MSI tels my that my GPU memory clock runs at 3500 MHZ ( all the time, no matter if gaming or no) . It should runs at 7000 MHZ I guess...
