    Update for Nvidia SLI users:
    I noticed that the Antialiasing method TAA in the game drop the performances from about 150 fps to 100 fps because simply doesn't work fine with SLI.
    Leave it on FXAA high!

    For issue with SLI that doesn't scale with the game go here: https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/972133/sli/battlefield-1-low-sli-gpu-usage/post/5079787/#5079787

    BF1 is just one of the many games in my video game library that plays better on a single card than in SLI. I'm reading the performance stats here on this thread and wondering to myself: "Wow. You're getting that in SLI when playing BF1? I'm getting the same exact performance with a single GTX 1080!" With Nvidia limiting the 10 series to more of a dual SLI configuration and so forth, it just seems clear that Nvidia just wants their customers to keep upgrading their GPUs in single card fashion as frequently as possible.

    BF1 SLI works perfectly fine you need highly OC bneefy CPU like 6-10 core i7 and you will keep high stable framerate/usage

    This is my 5960x 4.5 with 1080SLI usage at 1440 165z.

    Even my 5960 can buckle under pressure and GPU usage will drop granted its only slightly like in the 80s but im still pushing over 120 fps where in single GPU on ultra be lucky if i get 80fps.

    A 4/8 i7 will bottleneck for sure regardless what gen or core clocks. This game plus driving multi GPU on 64 player server with all destruction is very demanding on CPU even more so if you want 100 plus fps.

    Thanks for info, but I bought the PC this week and after a couple of days of search was able to find only tons of unanswered threads or fix that doesn't work for me.
    When I found the problem with TAA I updated all opened/unanswered threads fo help the future victims... ;)

    On low setting i get 120-125fps and anything between Medium and Ultra i cant go over 50-55 fps. I know sli isnt supported very well but surely it shouldnt affect FPS that much

    Hi mate,

    Try renderdevice.renderaheadlimit with values from 0-4. For me works fine renderdevice.renderaheadlimit 4.
    Post Processing to LOW

    I get 120 solid with 2x980ti and 135% Res Scale all HIGH less PostPreccesing on LOW


    What GPU's usage are you getting?


    Are you CPU overclocked? You could try to remove 2 sticks of RAM to see if it makes any difference...... and run the game on DUAL channel.....



    And sorry but SLI setting runs smooth like butter.... try to play with differents settings.....


    Cheers

    That's bud

    Ive only tried the commands you suggested and it went all the way up to 100ish, so far cpu is at 4.8ghz and shall try removing ram to see if it gives any fps gains. What resolution are you using by the way LOPa99?

    I am getting 80%+ for usage of GPU and 60%+ for CPU which is 4790k 4ghz and 4.8ghz set in turbo

    Update 2: tried removing the Ram to see if anything would become of it, nothing happened with either channels isolated

    Brief description of issue: GPU 1 usage of 70% max and gpu 2 usage 55% usage max. Game running at ultra at 3440x1440 on a 34" 100hz monitor. FPS max is 75 and dips below 50
    GPU's: 2 x 980
    Driver Version: 378.49
    Windows Version: 10 Professional
    CPU: I7 4790K at 4.0 ghz

    I've tried clean uninstall and re-install via DDU. I've tried the adding userconfig:
    gametime.maxvariablefps 144
    RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 2
    Thread.MaxProcessorCount 8

    but both of those are in vain. average gpu usage is around 55%

    Thats unfortunate chibiaznflipboi, i reinstalled BF1 and now getting 120+ fps with everything on ultra 2560 x 1440 with 144hz monitor. Have you tried RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 0?

    Try this:

    1. Reboot in safe mode and use DDU from there to unistall the drivers.
    2. Install the version 378.57 hotfix from here: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4378/~/geforce-hot-fix-driver-version-378.57
    3. Enable SLI and the correct refresh of the monitor from Nvidia control panel.
    4. Disable TAA from the BF1 graphic options
    5. Test the game

    If still not working, try to reinstall the game or set all the game configurations to their default values.

    I haven't set it to 0 yet. that'll be another test i will try to do. Thank you very much!

    I will try this as soon as possible. I'll get back as soon as I have tested it. Thank you

    So, I've tried the clean uninstall and re-install of the drivers, specifically version 378.57. It increased my FPS to 80 max. So instead I uninstalled the game and re-installed it. I'm getting around avg 90 fps. I'll see what else i can do. I might try the userconfig RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 0

    Damn, guess I wont be installing the game again for the winter patch.

    What NVIDIA Driver is this by the way?

    I have 5960x 2x1080 cards running on 1440p and game to me feels like crap .High fps most of the time yet game feels like its playing at 30 fps when its showing 100 + ,But after this patch the fps as been killed ..

    Looks like this is never going to be fixed the game after winter patch as nothing in it to fix the problem with SLI , Game feels like crap set to high or even mid setting @ 1440p with 2 1080 cards ,This is not right ....

    Dice just dont know how to optimise there games ..

    Unfortunately it's not so easy, and there are a lot of variable in a system apart from NVidia or DICE that can made your actual configuration doesn't work well with a particular game. I spent a week for made the system working fine (re-installing it several times) with SLI and at the end it wasn't the problem from the game or from the NVidia driver because I solved using the same.
    If you still having problems with SLI scaling with BF1 try this and let me know:

    1. Reboot in safe mode and use DDU from there to unistall the drivers.
    2. Install the version 378.57 hotfix from here: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4378/~/geforce-hot-fix-driver-version-378.57 (today the 378.66 come out http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/115492/en-us )
    3. Check SLI is enabled and the correct refresh of the monitor from Nvidia control panel.
    4. DON'T TOUCH ANY SETTING FROM NVIDIA PANEL EXCEPT ENABLING G-SYNC IF AVAILABLE AND SETTING THE MONITOR REFRESH
    5. Disable TAA from the BF1 graphic options ( USE FXAA High instead)
    6. Test the game

    If still not working, try to reinstall the game or set all the game configurations to their default values.

    If still not working:

    1. Install OS
    2. Install "Software Installation Utility Intel_Chipset_Win7-81-10_V10.1.1.42"
    3. Install "MEI_Win7-81-10_V11601026"
    4. Install "IRST_Win7-81-10_V15201020"
    5. Install "AUDIO drivers
    6. Install "Intel_LAN_Driver_....
    7. Install NVIDIA "GeForce Hot Fix driver version 378.57"
    8. DON'T TOUCH ANY SETTING FROM NVIDIA PANEL EXCEPT ENABLING G-SYNC IF AVAILABLE AND SETTING THE MONITOR REFRESH
    9. Install BF1 Disable TAA from the BF1 graphic options ( USE FXAA High instead)
    10. Test the game
