  • Subject: Crysis 2 Multi GPU support causes insane flickering.

    I am averaging 50-60 FPS with one GPU, but hey I paid for two so I would like to be able to use both.

    I remember getting SLI to work on the demo with the SLI config Nvidia released, but unfortunately the game flickered so badly that It was going to give me a seisure If I had played it for more then five minutes.

    After the demo patch came out, the flickering stopped, but the SLI broke again.

    I am getting 55-60 FPS on my one GTX480 which isn't bad at all, but I want both to work. If I turn Vsync on, then I lose the flickering but gain ghosting that overlaps my previous image with my current one.

    I have tried every driver, SLI config and the EVGA SLI enhancer and nothing seems to fix this issue.

    Am I the only one with this problem?

    Here is a vid of how bad my flickering is.

    Update. Flickering fixed

    Hey guys I just wanted to give you a heads up that my flickering has been fixed thanks to a few people from MyCrysis.

    Here is a link to the fix that worked for me. Thanks for the help.


    100+ FPS with zero flickering. SLI enabled and both GPU's 100% in use.

    This might not work for everyone, but recommend trying it. Worst that can happen is you will have wasted a few minutes of your time.

    I was really hoping that this was going to be fixed by the time it launched, but It looks like only Nvidia and AMD can fix this with driver updates. REAL ONES. I have tried the current ones that support Crysis 2 and I would prefer not to die of a stroke thank you very much.
