There are indications that SLI mode isn't working properly with Oblivion. For you guys with SLI rigs, do you see a performance difference with SLI enabled and disabled?

Is that resolution 1280x1024? Do you have AF on in the control panel? Those fps do seem a little low for your setup. I am getting 20-30 fps outside with a "lowly" 6800 U. Also did you defrag after installing the game?

Don't have ffdshow installed. I'm just using FRAPS, walking around in the world for about a minute or so and posting FRAPS log file results. It's just a very quick/dirty test. A better test would be a longer run through the world indoors/outdoors/etc like OWA did. Do that three times, take the overall average, etc. Better to have FRAPS log all FPS per second and graph the results in a line graph to see the peaks and valleys.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

SLI is helping. Just in a spot check in the first outside area, it's almost doubling my framerate. If people are just using auto-detect, it's probably going with SFR and in that case, it doesn't help at all. So far, I'm getting the best results with AFR.

If you have coolbits installed, just create a profile for Oblivion and choose advanced settings. That will show all the options. The SLI mode is near the bottom of the profiles. You select that and you should see single-gpu, SFR, AFR, AFR2, SLI-AA, and I think auto-detect. Just choose AFR. If you don't have a profile setup for Oblivion, you can probably just set the global SLI setting to AFR for now to see if that works. Turn on the load balancer so you can make sure you get the AFR bar and not the SFR line.

I like what I am reading and might run out and pick this game up by weeks end.

Any people running on Win XP x64 experiencing any issues? Any show stopping bugs?
