    Default GFX benchmarking programs vs SLi

    As we all probably are aware off, everyone with an SLI setup will get less points in benchmark programs like 3dmark, vantage, Heaven ect than people running 1 single card
    so my question to you is, how to fix it?

    its all about sli profiles but do you have them, other tweaks you know of that could be any help just post them :)

    Question Re: GFX benchmarking programs vs SLi

    ....an SLI setup will get less points in benchmark programs like 3dmark, vantage, Heaven ect than people running 1 single card
    so my question to you is, how to fix it?
    What do you mean by "less points"?

    Every review that I've read shows that recent GTX SLI video card setups have about 70 - 80% higher performance scores than a single card setup. I've tested my MSI Hawk N460GTX video cards in "ancient" systems that only have pci-e 1.x bandwidth and my single and dual card results are similar to modern systems running GTX 460 (1GB) cards. When overclocked, my SLI setup has performance similar to a GTX 470 or 580 single card setup.

    and http://forums.tweaktown.com/video-ca...xtra-cost.html for some end-user benchmark results.
