Different SLI [AUTO] - SLI for different cards.

What is it?


DifferentSLIAuto is a small, free tool that allows you to pair together different GPUs of similar generation/architecture to work together in SLI*
It can also enable SLI on some non SLI/Crossfire compatible motherboards, making it a replacement for the now discontinued HyperSLI program**

*Mixing different VRAM sizes may cause some instability or stop SLI from functioning properly.
**The use of SLI on non multi-GPU motherboards is not guaranteed.


Before you get started, you will want to check compatibility based on architecture.
In your Windows device manager. Right click on your display adapter and go to properties. Switch to the "Details" tab, and in the combo box select "Hardware Ids."
The first three numbers following "DEV" must match for the cards to work together.

As an example :

NVIDIA_DEV.1185.098A.10DE = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660"
NVIDIA_DEV.1185.106F.10DE = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760

The following is a list of current and some past Nvidia cards.

Code:
[*]DEV_0191 "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX"
[*]DEV_0193 "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS"
[*]DEV_0194 "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra"

Anti-virus note - Some virus modules will produce a false positive concerning DifferenSLIAuto 1.1
For example, Malware Bytes states :

DifferentSLIAuto1.0/tools/Checksum.exe as being malicious.

We suggest making an exception in your anti-virus program. For MBAM in particular, you remove it from your quarantine and then goto your "Ignore" tab. Browse to the file and confirm to have MBAM ignore it in the future.

==================================

Windows 10 note provided by TPU member:
(Please understand that currently we haven't any one to test this to confirm their findings. If you use Windows 10 and these types of cards with success, report in and we can take away this notification).

"NVIDIA cards have two separate (and incompatible) classes/model versions. Although they may have worked together in previous versions of windows, they will not work in Windows 10. Fermi class cards, which means all 500 and below and some 600 series cards cannot be used in Windows 10 with Maxwell class cards - some 600 and all 700 series cards and up. Windows 10 will not load Fermi and Maxwell drivers at the same time.

Please see this page for details: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answ...dia-display-driver-for-my-older-graphics-card

This is not an issue with Different SLI. This is not necessarily an issue with NVIDIA drivers. This is an issue with Windows 10 not being able to load WDDM 1.3 mode drivers and WDDM 2.0 mode drivers simultaneously. It won't even work with Microsoft's native drivers. I was really disappointed when I followed all instructions and everything seemed to be working until I looked at device manager and saw the driver for my second card wouldn't load. Sadly, I'll have to forgo using different sli until my husband upgrades his GPU again. Good luck to all."

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Old Method DifferentSLI 320.18 modded driver. (Enabling different cards in SLI)

Please note this is no longer necessary except for testing purposes. If you are having problems with the new method - tell us about it!

To install:
1) Install original drivers (it's neccessary to install the same version as modded driver)
2) Put cards together you want to SLI
3) Reboot
4) Download the modded driver
5) Log in as Administrator
6) UAC must be disabled
7) run Install.cmd
8) reboot
BE AWERE. YOU SHOULD PUT CARDS TOGETHER YOU WANT TO TRY IN SLI BEFORE YOU INSTALL MODDED DRIVER TO WINDOWS DETECT NEW HARDWARE. 290.53 Windows Vista&7 x64
296.10 Windows Vista&7 x64
301.42 Windows Vista&7 x64
310.70 Windows Vista&7 x64
314.22 Windows Vista&7 x64

Do the cards have to be based on the same core?

This sounds interesting. I seem to remember that some company came up with a bridge chip to make AMD & NVIDIA cards work together too and some mobos were released with it. Nothing seems to have come of it though, possibly because of licensing issues. What a shame.

Still, it proves that cards can be totally dissimilar and still work together just fine.

If this proves that sli can be done with different cards ( i believe Nvidia state you can only sli matched cards) then in theory it enables nvidia owners to equal the versatility of AMD/ATI owners (subject to drivers)
It also Proves what a money grabbing bunch of bullshits Nvidia are.(forceing you to buy matched cards for sli)
How many Nvidia card owners would have bought a second card to upgrade to sli (hi-bred sli) in the same way many ati owners crossfired mixed cards such as 6950/6970.
How many card sales did Nvidia/partners lose to ATI due to this
ATI/AMD knew their cards could do this and publicy acknowlaged and supported this and so they " MUST HAVE GAINED SALES"

can this be used on an non-sli Intel based board? such as the P35 or p45

so something like a GTX570 and a GTX280 wouldn't work?

According Steam hardware survey not a single card was lost. And considering all problems Crossfire/SLI have most people prefer single card. ಠ_ಠ

My thoughts exactly. Damn, now I which I had a pair on mix-matched nvidia cards to try this with. Alas, all I have right now are my 5870s

well at the very least it would limit your DX capabilities - DX11 games either wouldnt benefit, or would have to be disabled.

I know, guess I'll be limited to the 400 and 500 series.
