    1. First off you need to download the program Nvidiainspector.

    2. Then you need to choose the "battlefield v" profile.

    3. You need to set "SLI compatibility bits dx10 + dx11" to : 0x080116F5

    4. You need to set "Nvidia predefined number of GPUs to use on SLI rendering mode DX10" to : 0x00000004

    5. You need to set "Nvidia predefined SLI mode on DirectX 10" to : 0x00000002


    Sli should now work with dx11.


    To prevent texture issues while using sli you will also want to force anisotropic filtering to x16 through the global profile in nvidia inspector.

    Additionally sli works by far the best with motion blur set to 0 and future frame rendering set to ON in the ingame settings.


    Issues using this profile is that dynamic wether effects (such as snow and rain) doesn't render, aswell as a slight amount of ghosting. However, the profile provides about 97% sli scaling, provided nothing in your setup is bottlenecking it.

    The sli profile running on my rig at 4k ultra :

    i tried doing this and i still only get 10% on the second gpu. i also tried deleting bfv.exe on the battlefield v profile and adding it to battlefield 1 profile on nvidia inspector and still doesn't work. can someone please help me get this to work?? on latest drivers, core i9-9900k, 2080ti SLI

    Dice in their infinite wisdom caused this with their feb 14 update.

    Solution is to apply all the changes in nvidia inspector as you normally would, and then before entering the game go to c:\programdata\nvidia coorperation\drs, and then take and make the two big files (nvdrsdb0 and nvdrsdb1) read only. Then the game can't remove the sli profile.

    I try all fixes that i found, different profiles settings in inspector, move the bfv.exe to bf1 profile, change the "read only" to profiles file in program data folder, and nothing happens, still maximum 20% on the 1st gpu!
    My spec is:
    9900k
    2x2080ti nvlink
    Dx11
    Motion blur off
    Future frame on
    Nvidia 419.75
    Thx!

    Then you are doing something wrong. Do what my guide says (which does NOT include moving bfv.exe to bf1 profile) and it will work.

    1. Are you playing in DX11 or DX12? If the latter, this isn't going to work at all. This guide ONLY WORKS for DX11.
    2. Do you have Future Frame Rendering (FRR) enabled in the game's settings? You HAVE to have that on.
    3. Are you absolutely certain that you set the NVidia files read-only after you apply the profile changes?

    You're doing something wrong.

    Does sli work for you in other games ?

    Hi guys as this thread talks about sli , I have an issue/question. With my current setup I cannot push my cards harder then 48-58%. Thats on a resolution scale of 100% now if I bump up the value my cards actually start to perform at 90-98%. Do I have a cpu bottleneck ? Playing at 1440p . I am well aware that at higher resolution the loads shift to the gpu. And I am guessing it is my cpu. Just wanted to hear from you guys.

    My Frames also seem pretty low for my setup ranging from 69-120 fps and on average at around 95 Frames.

    Specs are : 4930k @ 4.7Ghz ,1080ti Sli , 16GB DDR4 and a SSD. This issue also only occurs when I play multiplayer if I play the campaign I get perfect scaling.

    Thanks for responding.

    Yes, there is most likely a cpu bottleneck. I am pretty sure your ingame cpu usage is hitting 100% most of the time. With a 8700k you would be getting over 200fps with that setup.

    Revert your gpu driver to 417.71 and then follow the instructions. Select "Battlefront II (2017)" 0x080112F5 profile in NvidiaInspector as it scales better (better gpu usage) than the "Battlefield I" 0x080116F5. Report back. Goodluck.

    I have a 4930k, and no... just no. At no point is the cpu a limiting factor for me.

    Also IF he could only get 69 fps with a 4930k at 4.7 ghz, then there is no way he would get over 200 fps with a 8700k, as it only has about 60% higher single thread performance, and the same amount of cores / threads.

    You are basically talking out of your ****.

    It is ok to disagree, as long as we can stay civilized and respectful. 8700k outperforms 4930k in any way. It is possible to average 120-130fps with 8700k and 1 gtx 1080ti in 1440p. His average was 95fps (120fps high side). One reason for the frame drops is the game itself. Other than that, the cpu he has, is not pushing enough frames to the 2 gtx 1080tis and thus the low gpu usage. When I said over 200fps, that was a prediction. It was never meant to be an accurate measurement.

    I don't disagree, as there is nothing to disagree about. Fact is that you are pulling those numbers out of your ****. When lowering the resolution to 720p (thus ensuring that i am entirely cpu bottlenecked), i am able to run the game at 150+ fps, even 200 depending on the map.

    Unless he has a faulty cpu, that is not where the problem lies...

    As i wrote to him the issue is more likely ram, as ram speed and latency makes a significant difference with this cpu in this game.

    And yes, obviously a 8700k is faster, roughly 60% as i wrote, but it is hardly relevant when he doesn't have a 8700k, and that the cpu he has is more than sufficient for this game. Add to that, the 8700k only has 16 pcie lanes, so if you game at 4k (or higher) you will actually lose gpu performance with a 8700k vs a 4930k (which has 40 pcie 3.0 lanes), as pcie bandwidth is super important for sli performance.

    Now lets get back on topic - this thread is about getting sli to work, so write in the bf5 performance thread if you have performance issues.

    Just want to say thanks! Your steps worked great, and I've got 2 1070s running in SLI perfectly.

    You really have no clue what you are talking about in regards to anything. His issue was that dice had made it so that the profile resets every time you enter the game, thus he had to make the driver config files read only... it had NOTHING to do with what driver version he was using, as any driver can get the sli bits added, nor did it have anything to do with using bf1 profile, as that won't lead to 10% load on the 2nd gpu. 10% gpu load on the 2nd gpu means that the gpu's cuda cores is assisting the cpu in cpu heavy tasks due to sli not being active.

    If you had any knowledge about sli and just a tiny bit of activity in that pea brain of yours, you would have come the same conclusions... but clearly you don't, so kthxbye !

    Absolutely. I have tried to keep it at an objective level, but this guy started with his aggravating comments.

    You admins should have addressed this, as this is the fuel that drives us in the wrong direction.


    An absurd statement was this one:

    He is basically stating that he doesn't disagree, but he continues to push his own view. He discarded and rejected a different opinion, while at the same time promoted his own and ridiculed other.

    It is better to close this thread, than to allow this conversation to continue. I didn't start it, but I'll put the last nail in it.
