this thread has nothing to do with "crosshair" and i presume you mean Crossfire
It seems you're a card collector.
I guess you can say that.All the hardware that i've had,i've never sold.I might even try to SLI a 7600GT with this 8800GTS 320
with 580/570 i got 90%+ on both
Yes, of course 2 radeon Graphic card : 6450 & 6750
You should be able to by default. ATI has always allowed different cards from the same core family to crossfire IIRC.
And to everyone else, I would expect that NO configuration that has GPUs from different families to work for SLI. So no 7xxx series cards with G8x's, no G8x's with G9x's, no G9x's with GF1xx's... So on and so forth.
O, thanks. I will make my GC...
I tried with 2 Geforce, with different sets.
1) Geforce 8800GTS 640 Mb as master, and Geforce 9400 GT as slave :
The system says it's SLI compatible, but when I enable it : black screen with a blinking cursor on the upper left of the screen
2) Geforce 9400 GT as master and Geforce 8800GTS 640 Mb as slave :
The system says it's SLI compatible, but when I enable it : BSOD...
After the second set, I had to restore before installing the modded drivers OR take out the 9400 GT for the system to restart.
As I have stated before, I wouldn't expect any cards with different core designations to work together, only those within the same family.
can mods please for the love of english edit the first post so "BE AWERE. YOU SHOULD PUT CARDS TOGETHER YOU WANT TO TRY SLI BEFORE YOU INSTALL MODDED DRIVER TO WINDOWS DETECT NEW HARDWARE." makes sense
Can you please respect that the author of the patch is Russian, and has not the best English skills?
He is a damn God of a programmer, so please leave it like that. If that is too much asked of you, please dont look at this thread.
I am having trouble getting two different GTX 570s (Evga + MSI) working together
Fully uninstalled the old nvidia drivers
Installed the 290.53
After installed 290.53 and rebooted, I shut down the computer and then I physically put the second 570 in and then installed the SLI bridge
Booted into Windows, ran install.cmd as Administrator, pressed a key when the program told me
Rebooted, saw the option to Maximize 3D Performance, but whenever I click Apply, Windows will go back to 800x600 resolution, and then control panel will stop working
Needless to say, the SLI is not working
Aggravated with the first attempt not working, I just uninstalled and then reinstalled 290.53 with the two cards in and the SLI bridge still on
Rebooted, ran install.cmd
SLI is still not working
Do I have to use HyperSLI if the motheboard is a SLI ready motherboard? It is a Z68 motherboard...
So, why in the world am I not able to get two different 570s to SLI to work?
Do you even need this for 2 different 570s? Shouldn't SLI work as long as they are both the same card, in your case, 570s.
use gpu-z and make sure they're both actually 570's (same shader count etc)
He has two 570s according to gpuz. We got it to work, however whenever the computer is restarted, the sli goes away?
Should stick, but you won't need any of these patches to make SLI work; it should work out of the box (i.e. with standard nVidia drivers from their site).
What Z68 board does he have?
P8Z68 pro asus
Just use the normal method, you shouldn't need this patch even if they are cards from different brands. The SLI is working without this patch, hence when you load it after restart, it messes something up.
Just do one last clean uninstall, and just install the drivers and then set 'Maximize 3D performance' from the control panel.
have you checked your bios too? on graphic/pciex setting
Hello from Russia. Respect anatolymik. Use this method and it works. Now use two GTS 250 DK.
Thank you very much for this.
Yea, this board supports SLI natively (i.e., you only need nVidia's drivers, and two like cards which you already have). Just plug in the cards, install the SLI bridge, let the driver install, then enable SLI in the control panel applet. Do NOT use these modded drivers, nor HyperSLI.
