SLI Support?

    Will we see SLI support, for multiple Nvidia graphic cards, now that RTX is available?

    I admit, 1080TI SLI is better than a rtx 2080ti....

    I looked into this to save some cheddar however everything I read was SLI is mainly dead and unsupported by a lot of games and has too many issues.. I don't know..

    Does ACC supports SLI? The FPS is not even great on my RTX 2080 Ti...

    I'm all in favor of choice, but the truth is that both AMD and Nvidia are slowly dropping multi-GPU support for games.

    For a title that supports triple screens, support for multiple GPUs should be a thing, I think.

    I'd like to have true confirmation that SLI is supported in ACC... I can't find anything online. I'd like to have amazing FPS in VR and everything cranked to high (at least). Did anyone tried SLI and noticed a huge boost in performance?

    With triples support I got AC today, running 1080TI SLI, OC & WC.

    Not tested "everything", it seems that SLI is not working as one could expect (looks like early rF2), high GPU usage and little gain.

    This is monitoring in-game, and in menus: 96-99% GPU load
    (7680x1440, high, scaling 80%, fps 75-80, single player)

    AFAIK SLI is not supported in any VR title.

    Works for me - forcing AFR 2 in nVidia control panel. It's the only way I can get 'smooth' 60fps at 4K with all max settings (using a TV). In standard configuration one of the cards is in idle as mentioned, and requires several gfx settings to be turned down.

    I say 'smooth' because it still dips below 60 occasionally (pits, lots of AI, etc.), so my preferred setup is to run Vsync (fast) with either shadows reduced to high or volumetric fog turned off; all other settings maxed. This puts me consistently in the 80-120 fps range, which keeps Vsync happy - no tearing and smooth framerate. Frametimes stay between 10-12 ms, rarely changing more than 1 ms at a time.

    Hard to say if this means it's 'officially' supported since I do have to force AFR2, but it works, so...

    Isn’t it generally up to Nvidia to make an SLI profile for any game? Not sure what the devs could do other then to push Nvidia to do it.

    I think SLI has frame timing issues which wouldn’t make it suitable for VR unless it’s something that’s specifically written for VR SLI but don’t think anything but Nvidia’s funhouse exists

    I am confused. How can twin 2080 ti paired with a 9900k dip below 60 FPS at 4K? There are some users here running tripple 1440p on single 2080 & 2080ti at medium/high graphics reporting 55-70 fps for 20-25 Ai..

    When you say you run "all max" settings does that include screen percentage at 200%? If so that would be taxing your GPU's at 8k which is equivalent to 32m pixels.

    Resolution at 100%. It'll run 200% (8K) on mid settings but only 45 fps. Doesn't look much better surprisingly.

    What you're saying actually sounds about right, based on benchmarked multi-GPU scaling for games/sims that aren't specifically supported, but do scale anyway (like ACC):
    - At 100% resolution (4K) on the 'mid' preset, fps average is 120.
    - At 100% resolution (4K) on the 'high' preset, fps average is 90.
    - At 120% resolution (4.6K...) on the 'high' preset - with a few on epic (AA, car LOD, textures and materials, mirrors) - it'll run a steady 70 fps. Triple 1440 = 4.3K.

    I've tested different settings combinations extensively; my best answer is that there is a massive difference between mid/high settings and epic settings for this game on this engine, in terms of GPU load, for whatever reason. I'm not a programmer. I've heard many say lack of optimization is to blame.

    I'm open to any suggestions to improve GPU scaling... but based on my experience and reports from others (such as yours), the #'s seem about right. Multi-GPU doesn't scale well except for a select few titles, but it does scale. Somewhere between 10-40% depending on a **** ton of variables. Unless I'm way off, I appear to be scaling about 30-40% over a single GPU; rough estimate of course. I'm also guessing the FPS #'s you reported for triple screen users do dip below 55-70 occasionally, if not quite often.

    Correcting my brain fart... Triple 1440 does not = 4.3k... Thanks to everyone who read that and decided not to replay rather than tear into me.

    2560x1440x3 = 11.3MM pixels. 4K = 3840x2160 = 8.3MM pixels. I'll have to run mine at 132% resolution to see if I'm faring any better than 55-70 on medium/high for a 1:1 comparison, and see if the epic settings draw it down exponentially as expected. SLI scaling may be closer to 10-20% than 20-30%. Will update later, after some sleep...

    I have the impression that SLI scaling is something the developer need to either adapt to or collaborate with Nvidia for example.

    Compare to rF2, around 2017 the scaling was really bad, as default only one GPU was used, later when the community tested out compability bits for SLI it got much better, today you can run it on default all zero's, i.e there is no new profile available, the game just support it better.

    As seen on my post above, all time, in the menus, on track or in traffic, the GPU load is 2x98%, and the result not impressive. For now I'll wait, hopefully SLI support will get better. Running mid/low and scaling 75% just to get 85 fps and 2x98% GPU load does not make sense. Would probably better of running one card.

    I agree the cost for performance gain doesn’t make the most economic sense. In my case I had one shot at the ultimate gaming pc I’ve wanted since I was a kid, about 20 years ago...
    However if you control the bank transactions, being married means your dream pc better come in one box and not two, even if the second one is ‘just’ a video card (a crazy $1,300 one no less) and didn’t arrive until a year later. If you’re married you’ll understand; if you’re not I sound like a lunatic.

    You did mis-quote me a bit though, to be fair. I can run ACC at ‘epic’ across the board on a 4K tv with a rare dip below 60 FPS. I (surprisingly) could not do that with just one card, even with the other physically removed from the PC. I’m just sharing my particular case so others can decide for themselves. I may be the exception. I’ve actually found that ACC looks better at 120-130% resolution with a mix of high and epic settings at which the FPS is stable at 90 in any situation. I certainly can’t explain that, but whatever. It is what it is.

    Again, my particular buy scenario is pretty unorthodox, so yes, i agree in practically any other situation it’s a bit of a paltry return on investment at the moment for ACC, to say the least...

    Would love to see SLI support too - any chance we could get someone from the dev team to answer this question?

    Nice!!! So I assume I can take mine off AFR2 now...

    Wait a sec, that’s what I get for skipping over details; just saw the version and date. Mine works well on AFR2 but one card stays way low on usage when I’m using “nvidia recommended.” With AFR2 they’re both in the 90’s and perform significantly better.
