HITMAN’s beta phase is currently under way and it appears that the game does not support SLI out of the box. Well, fear not SLI owners as we’ve got a fix for you. Via the following workaround, we were able to properly utilize our GTX690 to its fullest, as both of our GPU cores were being used at 96%.
In order to enable SLI in HITMAN’s beta, you’ll have to use the NVIDIA Inspector Tool, find the game’s profile “Hitman Codename 47” and do the following changes:
By doing these changes, SLI will be enabled. Here are some comparison screenshots with and without SLI.
The only downside here is that there was one scene in which our SLI scaling dropped to 70%, so this cannot be considered a 100% fix. Still, it’s better than having only one GPU handling this title.
As you can see, HITMAN’s beta is quite demanding. We won’t pass judgement on it yet as this is a beta build, however things are not looking good. After all, the game releases in almost 20 days. Unless IO Interactive has offered PC gamers a really old build, HITMAN will require a really powerful PC in order to be enjoyed.
