Bad 2D performance DUAL 690's Tags: Palit Graphics wildem September 12, 2012 12:42:18 PM Hi all....hoping someone may have some advise. I just put together a new system...as below... Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz Asus RAMPAGE IV EXTREME Gskill 16G DDR3 2400 2x Palit GeForce GTX 690 OCZ-AGILITY3 (120GB, SATA600, SSD, NCQ) : 112GB Corsair Force GS (240GB, SATA600, NCQ) : 224GB Thermaltake Toughpower TP1200 Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 6.01.7601 (Service Pack 1) Platform Compliance : x64 My problem lies with performance once I setup 2D surround mode on 3x Samsung 27' SA950 monitors USING BOTH CARDS. What i mean is that when using only one graphics card, games running in surround mode at 5760x1080 run at a constant 50-80 FPS. Once I setup both cards QUAD SLI in surround mode at same resolutions and settings....frame rates drop to around 22 and the sound stutters. Noticeable small pauses and lag when playing. I am failing to understand why, or how to solve. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance.
