As an extreme example when you are unsuccessfully transported from Kliener's lab and end up outside. If I turn around and view the electrical structure behind the lab the frame rate is in the 20s but if I do a quick save and then reload I am at 100+. There are other instances where this occurs as well and it is kind of annoying since you never know when SLI is truly working or not.

I had this problem. But it happened in single and SLI mode. Just reloading the level fixed it.
