    Hi

    I got crysis 2 and its great, but i am wondering why the performance of my second graphics card isnt doing more than 35%.
    Crysis can use 90+% on both gfx so crysis 2 should too, since they are both based on crysis 1 engine.

    I am using 2x Geforce 260 gtx in SLI.

    Heres a pic of the cards showing usage when playing in extreme and then very high settings.

    Is it just me, or is this normal for 200 series, or all geforce cards?

    id like some feedback about this, thanks :)

    Meh, what do you expect from a console port? And..

    Not sure where you got this information but Crysis 2 uses a new engine, "CryEngine 3".

    Yes of course, but if they managed to optimize cry engine 2 to utilize 90% of both graphics cards, then it doesnt make sense that cryengine cant.
    Remember they base cry engine 3 on cry engine 2 and then optimize.

    You can see that by looking at the console, its basically the same as crysis.

    Thanks for the suggestion but it is already running in SLI. Without SLI graphics card 2 is at 0% obviously. Its definetely a graphics card or driver issue here, but i just cant tell why.
    Those bastards at nvidia should start updating for the geforce 200 series, its not that old!
    They havent updated for 200 series for ages.

    And im sure the driver also helped crysis 2.
