    SLI Works, with the new Nvidia drivers. The problem is that the GPU usage drops from 99% to 40 % in some areas, and the frame rate goes under 20fps.

    But the problem is not SLI, if you play the game with just one GPU, the game has the same problems with GPU usage. For example, in one situation, if you step into a bridge you go from 60 fps to 20 fps loool, and if you step back you get again 60 fps looooooooooooooool. :banana:

    According to the Japanese Dark Souls website that From uses the 1.02 update should include performance fixes, might help the PC version too as yeah I've heard similar reports of various in-game areas having poor GPU usage and subpar framerate even with high-end GPU models.
    (Console build is I think 1.01 on the JP version and 1.00 on the "early" EU/WW version, PC is 1.01 too since a while back and should be at least 1.02 in time for release next week from what I've read.)

    (Some of the earliest PC impressions were from the 1.00 version too as I understood it thus reports of glitches, crashes and even worse framerate issues but I'm not expecting the 1.02 update to fix everything when the game releases in full next Tuesday / possibly late Monday depending on time zones and such.)

    Yap, my PC version is 1.01. I stopped playing the game until the new patch, it ruins the game experience.

    Well I can't use contoller on this type of game, must be my age, so it's a no go for me. Why the **** they can't just add good m+k support like most other games baffles me.

    I got my first controller when I realized that I can’t play Dark Souls with KB+M. It was a bit difficult at the beginning and learning new input with one of the hardest games did not help. But after a while I was so used to it, that I started looking only for games that support it, bought two consoles and even play shooters with controllers nowadays. So yeah, get one – the Xbox 360 wireless or wired, Xbox One, or ever the Steam controller if you feel that the touchpads will be better for you. They are all relatively cheap.

    I am 44. I never have been able to use a KB/M really well in third person games. First person games, I have never been able to use anything but KB/M really well. Can't even imagine playing DS with anything but a controller.

    Durante made another PC Gamer article, this time about Dark Souls 3 - http://www.pcgamer.com/durantes-dark-souls-3-port-analysis/
    (From http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1205238 )


    EDIT: No gameplay issues with framerates above 30, good GPU and CPU usage but one area completely sucks and there's a number of options to adjust, Durante also encountered some BSOD issues with Nvidia DSR at very high resolutions but other than that the game was completely stable.
    (SLI also works it seems.)

    Terrific Durante's technical analysis as usual.

    Did you see the PC version Eurogamer review?

    It's focused on lore, game mechanics and IP consistency.

    The article qualified the game as ESSENTIAL.

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-04-04-dark-souls-3-review

    Reading both reviews together expose a more complete vision of what is coming.

    TOO MUCH HYPE!TOO MUCH HYPE!

    :D

    waiting for the Digital Foundry graphics review.

    Why the developer?FROM SOFTWARE didn't posted in here.

    Forums users should follow the netiquette non written rules and don't reveal any walktrought details openly.

    That's the primary reason we have spoilers in forums.

    To respect other users desire to don't know games details in advance...

    I (we) had no idea about where and if there is another route or another location before him and even his irrelevant name as you said.

    Your post sounded like a question so....:

    Do you want anybody in here to post the EXACT location of the route you didn't found before him? or ideally a video walktrought?

    :bang:

    Yea right? Not as bad as star wars and people trolling that movie, had one guy on steam going to all the forums posting spoilers as game threads with the user name kylorenkillshansolo.

    But as far as spoilers go thiss thread is not that bad, but i know ds people are violently against them.
