Is SLI enabled/disabled in "activate all displays" mode?
Wednesday, May 30, 2012 6:16 AM
I had "span displays with surround" working but changed it to "activate all displays". It's easier to have three full size windows (full size before would take up all three displays). I had a system information program (Speccy) tell me that SLI is disabled. I looked in nVidia control panel and it is in fact disabled.
Why is this? Does it not take alot of GPU power to run three displays? Or does SLI make the computer act as if there is one video card?
