will 2.5 support SLI for VR


Recommended Posts

Hi chaps, does anyone know if 2.5 will support SLI for VR.

 

 

I have a msi 1080 and thinking about purchasing a 1080ti to help with better performance in the CV1 l. but I wonder if i should wait and see.

 

has anyone seen anything about SLI support?

I haven't seen a thing mentioned on SLI support regarding the 2.5 merge. Perhaps some VR users can provide input regarding Nevada 2.0 regarding SLI.

 

The whole 2.5 merge has been pretty quiet of late with I think most focus on the Normandy map release. Hopefully once Normandy is done we will get some more info on how 2.5 is progressing. I originally was expecting that the merge would occur around the start of this year. Can't wait for a unified DCS install. Having multiple installs is not an ideal situation.

Dont bet on that horse is my advice.

 

SLI has worked for some, that is also true, but it mostly is troublesome, care intensive, discouraging sometimes and for sure a waste of money at some point, power consumption wise 1 new card always beats 2 older ones in SLI, that's plain obvious. Less stress on the PSU as well.

 

Many reason to just grab 1 x 1080Ti over 2 x 1080.

 

Unless ED states it will support it 100%.

Yer I agree, i just wish they could tell us if they will support SLI, but i understand they have a lot to do and this is minor in nature :)

These are wise words. SLI is largely a waste of time, money and electricity.

How many titles / engines, have actually successfully supported SLI?

Seems its mostly the big triple-A titles, and stand alone engines, like Unreal Engine, Cry Engine, Frostbite etc. - who all have large scale teams dedicated to work on the given engine - or? Engine teams that are much bigger than the entire staff of Eagle Dynamics, but also, a budget massively bigger, dedicated to engine development.

 

Like comparing US and Denmark's military budget :)

- Jack of many DCS modules, master of none.

- Personal wishlist: F-15A, F-4S Phantom II, JAS 39A Gripen, SAAB 35 Draken, F-104 Starfighter, Panavia Tornado IDS.

Sorry for highjacking your post but isnt a regular 1080 card enough for running dcs world in vr?? cause Im in the process of getting vr and currently thinking if I really need the 1080ti

 

I was thinking about supersampling the picture quality...

I am running a 1080 and it runs VR fine.

 

However, if I had not have already bought the 1080 and was buying a new card I would probably go ahead and go for the 1080 Ti.

 

It has not released yet so no reports how much improvement in VR it might give over a regular 1080 yet.

btw: iirc VR API does not support SLI at all. Maybe it does support mGPU, I have no idea.

Reminds of a joke I read on rec.humor.funny

 

[A friend who works at JPL told me this. I don't know its origin.]

Three NASA engineers, one from headquarters in Washington, one from the Johnson center in Houston, and one from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena were discussing whether it was better to have a wife or a mistress.

 

 

 

The HQ guy said it was better to have a mistress, because they are more understanding of the long absences required of a NASA employee. The Johnson guy retorted, "Oh, no, one must always follow proper rules and procedures, and marriage is the proper procedure, so it is better to have a wife."

 

 

 

The JPL engineer replied, "No, it is better to have both. That way, you can tell your wife that you're with your mistress, your mistress that you're with your wife, and go to the lab and work."

I had twin 780's until the 1080 came out. Nothing but a waste of money for DCS. Crysis, it was amazing but DCS had 0 results.
