Drivers always use the "full power" of the card. They just use that power in inefficient ways, which newer drivers try to refine.

It's a nice way to "choke" the cards until you need to release full potential also I guess...

Nice, Civ V (which is a game I actually play on a regular basis) got a nice 25% bump. So now, instead of pushing 80FPS on my 60Hz monitor, I can push 100FPS. Yay Me! [/sarcasm]

Cool, now build a new SLI profile for WoT so that game can run optimized again for me.

Yeah, did you have FPS problems? because it have been extremely smooth with my 570 ( played it over a year) you have 580 SLI? strange

Ok Wot is not optimizied at all but still more than 60 FPS on max for me.

Ever since the Patch (8.0 optimization/physics) SLI is broken. As in, only one Core no matter the driver revision works, period.
Before it was well documented (and even on Geforce) that SLI was fully supported by WoT. That is no longer the case it would seem since the new Engine revamp. So, hopefully in the comming months SLI will be back, and the game will start running right.
