SLI-scaling

As we’re seeing a trend that SLI and CrossFire aren’t supported quite that much anymore, Project Cars 2 surprised us in a positive way. First we’ll look at the scaling of running two RX580s in CrossFire. We can see decent gains in pretty much every resolution/settings combination, up to around 70% on 4K. Unfortunately, this setup is still not able to manage 60 fps at 4K and Ultra but WQHD and Ultra settings are perfectly playable when in CrossFire, while the game is all but unplayable on one card.

  RX 580 RX 580 CrossFire Verschil
1920x1080 - medium 134 fps 158 fps 18%
1920x1080 - ultra 63 fps 89 fps 41%
2560x1440 - medium 104 fps 156 fps 50%
2560x1440 - ultra 50 fps 75 fps 50%
3840x2160 - medium 62 fps 109 fps 76%
3840x2160 - ultra 32 fps 52 fps 63%

Looking at SLI, where we can see a negative result on medium settings due to CPU bottlenecking, the results on 4K and Ultra are a lot more promising, showing an increase in performance of 68%.

  GTX 1080 Ti GTX 1080 Ti SLI Verschil
1920x1080 - medium 245 fps 192 fps -22%
1920x1080 - ultra 144 fps 152 fps 6%
2560x1440 - medium 223 fps 191 fps -14%
2560x1440 - ultra 110 fps 150 fps 36%
3840x2160 - medium 144 fps 190 fps 32%
3840x2160 - ultra 74 fps 124 fps 68%
