How does SLI show in Win 7

Hello,
When I run Win 7 assessment PC test report shows only one GTX285 graphic card.

I got 2 installed in SLI mode and under Nvidia graphic settings SLI is turned on. Also device manager shows that both are working with no problems. I'm runnind 2 monitors as well with SLI focus on main monitor. (the other is actually HD TV)

I also got ASUS Xonar HDAV1.3 and both all video goes trough it. Does this m card mess with reports.

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    What do you mean Windows 7 test shows only one card?
    The assessment test simply tests your system and gives you a score

    It shows 1 GPU when i click view detailed performance and system information.

    And i didn't mention this before each card has 1MB dedicated ram on board.
    If it "sort of joins" 2 cards into 1 slot shouldn't give me stats for both cards together.

    So I should get 2 MB dedicated.... etc.... instead now it shows 1 MB dedicated??

    Pasted from detailed report Graphic section

  3. That's OK,it recognizes mine as one GPU too(Although 5970 is considered as a multi GPU card)
    So as far as GPU-Z and Nvidia control panel report that SLI is enabled you are fine.
