Note the similar systems - lowest is around 5200. Should I be worried?
Yeah - you sure it's making use of your SLI? That seems low compared to others in this thread, too.
Not a clue - it shows up as SLI but that's just the system info, I wouldn't know if the benchmarks are utilising SLI.
Perhaps use GPU-Z to monitor load on the second GPU while benching?
Ya, those are without SLI. I think the SLI profiles for 3dmarks 11 are back in the latest releases of the drivers.
I checked the profile and it's pre-set to Nvidia recommended (SLI). I also set multi-display to single display performance mode. Any ideas?
Have you tried any other benchmarks, to see if you're performing as would be expected for an SLI system in those?
Furmark Multi-GPU: 4689, standard: 4424. Seems like SLI works there.
Why such a small difference between multi GPU and standard? Am I missing something?
There was a difference, which is what I was looking for; I've never compared the performance of two 570s to a single one before. Am I to assume that the difference should be greater?
Also, would it be possible for a mod to stick these questions in its own thread? It's going a long way off-topic...
I'm not familiar with scaling in Furmark scores, but as it's a GPU core stress test, you would surely expect close to 100% scaling in SLI?
Furmark does indeed use both GPUs - I retried the benchmark with EVGA Preceision running in the background - both cards registered high usage.
3D Mark, however, only shows activity on GPU 2 (which is the top card that has the monitor plugged into - go figure), regardless of any settings I change.
I've tried changing the settings in the Nvidia Control Panel and in 3D Mark itself (I can change the GPU count manually).
I also had a check around for similar cases and, according to what I've read, SLI still doesn't officially work in 3D Mark 11. Oh well.
Well, if you were to choose one application for it to not work in, surely the one that isn't actually a game would be it
Takaharu, you could try the 266.44 beta. I'm told those come with the sli profile for 3dmark 11. You might need to add your card to the INF to install them.
I knew those had to be with SLI off, given the numbers.
I can wait. I wanted the value-for-money (upgrade to two 570s cost me less than buying a single one) rather than showing off a benchmark score.
I do know now, however, that it is in fact possible to run Crysis at full whack, 16x AA at 1920x1080 without any lag
Oh, and for the record, if SLI was working the score supposedly (approximately) doubles, judging by unofficial results that I've seen. Judging by CJLMTLCA's results, however, I won't keep my hopes up.
You're dealing with a little more GPU power than he is, but a weaker CPU ofc, so you never know.
And... 16xAA in Crysis? I've never enabled that outside of the Source engine
I got P2569 - Sapphire VaporX 5770
The Previous card score: Result P2749
New score with a Inno3D 1gb card: Result P3105
Looking foward to what this will be like in sli in time.
I just won an advanced key for 3D Mark 11 so i will post the lowly results for my stock ati HD5750 soon lol
