Default Re: UT3 runs worse with 'Enable SLI Technology'

Also, just out of curiosity, have you tried enabling VSync (and triple buffering if UT3 has that)? I found in some games that enabling VSync smoothed them out noticeably in SLI.
Already tried that. It seems to have nothing to do with choosing Single GPU or any other mode (Auto or AFR etc), anything when Nvidia CP is set to 'Enable SLI technology' does not give as good fps as 'Do not use SLI technology'.

I am running Vsync.

Best way I can describe it is, if I go on Deck with 'Do not use..' and have no bots then the framerate pretty much does NOT go lower than 60fps except to 58-59 occasionally. If "Enable SLI.." is chosen and I do the same thing, the fps drops to 50 and in the 40s when I fire rockets into the middle of the map etc.
