New SLI Setup, Problem with Precision X?

Hey TH,

I just installed a second evga 680 into my system, installation was a breeze and a run of 3DMark11 shows a substantial performance increase. However, I noticed something troubling on the performance log in Precision X.

The GPU2 memory usage (GPU2 is the new card) is off the charts. http://imgur.com/7fXt2

I haven't been able to find any similar issues in forums, so if anyone could shed any light on this it would be greatly appreciated.

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit with the following components:

Asrock z68 extreme3 gen3
i5-2500k
2 x evga GTX 680 (02G-2680-KR)
8gb g.skill ripjaws x @ 1600
Seasonic x-850 PSU

Thanks

Its the same as GPU1 usage, which is right. Both cards have to hold the same data when running in SLi.

Thanks for your quick reply.

I'm not sure I understand though: in the screenshot, GPU1 Memory Usage (MB) is at 279MB, while GPU2 Memory Usage is at 4,194,304MB, which is obviously impossible.

Sorry I was looking at wrong trace, uninstall that and use MSI Afterburner instead.

Afterburner shows both GPUs using the same amount of memory :)

Personally, I prefer the UI in Precision X - do you think it's just a visual glitch or should I be concerned for the health of my card(s) if I continue to use Precision?

Thanks
