Using only 1 card, I can go through the nvidia vision 3D setup just fine, and then play games without any problem.
IF I run with SLI active, however, the setup will slow to a crawl the moment it tells me to turn on the glasses, and the 3D light on the monitor lights up. After a few seconds the monitor will then turn off and then turn on - repeatedly. I can barely get through it, without any errors, but even then if I try to play a game, the same thing happens. Goes into 8 fps, and the monitor turns off and on. The computer will sometimes also lock up forcing me to restart.
- I have tried both the latest stable drivers and the beta drivers. I've run drivesweeper in safe mode each time before I install a new driver.
- SLI in 2D mode works perfectly.
- Temps are fine.
- I've tried hard-resetting the monitor.
- I have the DVI cable that came from the monitor connected.
Someone please help me; my problem seems rare and the nvidia forums are down.
I use the DVI-I connection, though it shouldn't matter, as long as it supports dual link DVI-D. 3D Vision apparently can work through dsplayport 1.2 with a dual link DVI converter, but when I attempted it, performance was horrid, which might have been a problem with the cable quality.
I wonder if your problem could be the cable or the particular connection you are hooked up to. Maybe you could swap the card positions, but it seems odd that the problem is only with SLI.
Something is wrong with the combined score when SLI is enabled. The graphics score is quite good, but something happens to the combined score with SLI enabled. I'm guessing what ever is interfering with 3D Vision is also causing this issue.
You should take a screen shot of both cards with GPU-Z. I see the bus interface is good on that one, but it doesn't show both on 1 screen.
