Multi GPU - does it work? thread

To find a game in the list press CTRL F. Then type in the name of the game you are looking for, as these are not added in alphabetical order.

I was thinking about doing this the other day, but was thinking on how I should format it.. Now I've had an idea that should work, keeping it nice and simple..

The object is to get a detailed and precise list of games and how they work in SLI/Crossfire. Obviously I will need help from you Nvidia guys but I will do what I can for AMD !

So the formatting is as follows -

Multi GPU type - CFX or SLI here.
Game - Game name here.
Does it work - answer here and brief explanation if you have any information.

Now I know AMD users can basically look through a list of profiles to see if Crossfire is listed which is nice, but this does not give you exact info on how well it works etc.

Any way, let's get the ball rolling.

Multi GPU type - Crossfire +SLI

Game - Crysis 3

Does it work - Perfectly on both

--

Multi GPU type - Crossfire

Game - Far Cry 4

Does it work - Yes it actually seems to work OK. However, Duna engine supposedly does not support Crossfire at all but I have found no information regarding when Crossfire was implemented. It seems to work fine, though.

--

Multi GPU type - Crossfire

Game - Fallout 4

Does it work - Yes. You need to be running Crimson 16.1.1 and version 1.2.37 of the game. Please read thread for instructions on how to do that.

--

Multi GPU type - Crossfire

Game - Just Cause 3

Does it work - No. According to the creators JC3 does not support multi GPUs of any type or sort. There is news that this game is going to be re-released in DX12 so we can only hope that SLI/CFX works by default using DX12's multi adapter.

--

Multi GPU type - Crossfire

Game - Mad Max

Does it work - Perfectly

--

Multi GPU type - Crossfire + SLI

Game - Call of Duty : Black Ops III

Does it work - Yes but it's not perfect. Flickering textures are relatively common and I have had the game crawl into the single FPS a couple of times quite far into the game.You also can not use MSI Afterburner screen overlays as this will result in missing textures. SLI issues are -Almost Perfect, does suffer from some microstutter and the occasional frame drops mainly when recording at 4K with Shadowplay

--

Multi GPU type - Crossfire

Game - Middle Earth : Shadow of Mordor

Does it work - Perfectly

--

Multi GPU type - Crossfire +SLI

Game - Tomb Raider

Does it work - Perfectly on both

--

Game - Dying Light

Does it work - Yes. However, like BLOPS III there are issues with flickering.Performance is good, though.

--

Multi GPU type - Crossfire

Game - Trine 2

Does it work - Perfectly.

--

Multi GPU type - Crossfire

--

Multi GPU type - SLI

Game - Elite Dangerous

Does it work - Perfectly, does suffer from occasional frame drop but that is believed to be a game issue. In terms of Crossfire X according to posts on the Frontier Forums there is no Crossfire profile for it so Crossfire will not enable, however I cannot test or confirm this issue.

--

Multi GPU type - SLI

Game - Titanfall

Does it work - SLI - Yes but suffers from weird lights popping up in the maps through walls and the occasional texture issue, game is also has a frame rate cap locked to the monitors refresh rate.

Yes.

I've spent the past couple of weeks Googling for information and tbh dude I can't find frickin' anything.

It really is a nightmare trying to find out if games work and there is a crapload of conflicting information.

Far Cry 4 for example according to online info I found worked, then it didn't, then it did, then the engine doesn't support Crossfire at all... So I tried it on my pirate copy (because TBH I don't play it as I hate FC games) and it stuttered like a pig. Then I read that it worked, so I stumped up and paid for the game. Tried it out myself, works quite well. Definitely improved FPS with no stuttering or flickering.

So yeah, basically I am testing games as we speak (well, I'm watching Spurs atm lol but will get back to it later) and I will add what I have tested and my findings.

I will also add SLI as a +SLI for example if any one has any info on SLI.

One thing I have sort of learned though is that if a game is not AFR friendly then it's highly likely that it won't work in SLI either.

But yeah, this sort of thread does not exist on the internet. Every thread I have found asking for lists usually results in people saying "I can't be bothered".

I've not tested GTAV yet (I didn't realise I had it installed) but will later. Apparently Crossfire has been a bit up and down on it but I will know more later

Ed. I have Thief installed too I think..

Ed2. Realised that the Thief I have is not legit (I've never played it to be fair) so I just bought it for £4.42 and will install and test later with GTAV !

This is why adding google docs or something for the forum would be mega handy.

Sniper Elite 3 - best CF and SLI game I have ever tried. Perfect
