    That article is FUD, it has been amended to reflect that.

    Was your GPU purchased in the last 90 days? The step up is open to everyone, as long as you have a qualifying product.

    Yes, I did get in the queue 2 days before my 90th day after purchase. It's a whole long series of emails, but here is what it boils down to.

    The place of purchase does not comply with the programs terms & conditions.

    Funny thing is that EVGA is the place of purchase, since my card is a fresh RMA. I sent many emails explaining this and many other facts, but I'm done with it now. Saving money for a 7nm AMD/NV GPU.

    New msi trio bios update out. Actually I don't know when it came out but I must have missed it. It's on techpowerup. Just flashed to it and seems good so far.

    Just wanted to chime in here after lurking for years. First thanks to all of you with your help, tips, and information, it really helped out. So after months of trial and error and 2 RMA's, I am glad to say I have finally got BFV playing on 2 x 2080 Ti in SLI with DRT on the PG348Q STrix 3440 x 1440 in ULTRA settings and everything. I use the medium DRT setting for BFV because the ULTRA drops fps down to 50FPS in DRT intensive maps, (Rotterdam, etc...). It took alot of effort and money to get here, but there we are...

    You know that SLI does not work in BF V using DX12 right?

    The second GPU is doing nothing.

    No, it doesn't, there is no SLI support in DX12 for BF V.

    I know you can get it running in DX11 (also unsupported as of yet), but there is flickering etc and no DXR support.

    Please do take some, I'd be curious how that works and what you'd have to set in inspector (just other bits? force AFR?)

    I forced all SLI DXxx settings to 2 GPU's and/or forced AFR depending on the settings in the drop list. I did copy the DX12 Profile for BF1 into the DX12 also, (bits). I will post more when I am home from work. I will show all settings in the screen shots, those from NVidia Profile Inspector, BFV, etc... And don't forget, you have to have Windows 10 1809, and Driver 416.94. See yall then...

    @fantaskarsef

    It may even show that the 2nd GPU is working but I seriously doubt that it is actually doing anything.

    Do you really believe this guy has somehow managed to do what Nvidia, DICE and several people who are extremely proficient with SLI profiles cannot?

    Even when SLI works in BF V (in DX11), it is a horrendous mess.

    I'm sure this guy thinks it is working (I'm not calling him a liar), but a single 2080Ti @ 1440P will give you 50-60 FPS with DXR Medium so it's no stretch that the same @ WQHD will give you 50 FPS.

    Just because you force SLI doesn't automatically mean it works, in fact in a lot of cases, it just makes things worse.

    There is nothing, anywhere on the internet (I just spent about 30 minutes looking) that suggests DXR works with SLI in BF V at this point.

    I'll believe it when I see a side by side comparison video of BF V where the SLI score is significantly better than the single GPU score.

    SLI very often (especially when it is forced) shows that both GPUs are utilized even though the 2nd one is doing SFA.

    Sorry to be so skeptical.

    Honestly, I'm sceptical too, but first I haven't had SLI in some time, and even back then it was too bothersome for me trying to find working SLI bits in BF1, I just didn't play the game as long as SLI under dx11 didn't work( and eventually not anymore at all).
    If this really works, it's great, if not, it doesn't change much to what we know now. I couldn't tell, honestly, but if there's any way to get mGPU being effective under dx12 I'd easily call it the find of the month :D

    He also says that he copied the BF1 DX12 SLI profile over and there is no DX12 SLI profile (or DX12 bits) for BF1, according to the second post in the link below, DICE confirmed that there will be no DX12 mGPU in BF1.

    Hardocp just had their replacement card die.
    This one had Samsung memory.
    2 out of 3 cards failed so far for them.
