    Hi all ,
    i am shaking down the beta at the moment .i get 0 difference in Frame rates using 2 gpu cards(2*nvidia 660ti 3gb) +display set to no V sync)
    unity 4.X never supported SLI and the new version does not seem to either i am a little dissapointed any ideas or info ???

    With Unity focusing on mobile so much I guess you can forget about such features. Imo physx on GPU is much more needed ;)

    Firstly are you under 60fps that you would tell the difference, and secondly, are you cpu bound? :)

    Yup, good point, you should look at your GPU rendering times in profiler, not the FPS.

    Also it's tremendously unlikely the editor will ever be vsync off. Standalone would show things in a clearer light.

    Hi crazyhorse666, AFAIK we have not made any SLI specific optimizations or changes for version 5.0.

    I am v sync off in preferences much better performance !
    whats the problem with SLI compatibility whats the big deal for the software to allow this ??
