Hi all,

For the record, my O/S (Windows 10 64bits) installed the latest update of Windows, which is the Windows 10 Anniversary update (build 1607).
Once the installation got finished, I did a clean reboot, then checked out my video settings.

My gpu gear : a sli of nvidia gpus (gtx980). In the nvidia settings, I had to reboot the SLI as it said I had an "update" to do. 1st time I ever see that message. After each driver upgrade I have to turn it back on, but dont remember having seen this message before.

Bottom line is : My games were messed up. I connected on black-ops3 and I had like no texture at all once in game... Plus, I could not set up the in-game video settings as usual. I was stuck up to "middle" on the texture choice (could not select high, the option was gone, just like if my gear had been lower down). Plus the game got all laggish.

I tryied to force the video settings via the Nvidia experience panel, and it seemed ok when I connected. Then I launched a game and boom, back with the ugly textures and impossible for me to turn on the high settings in the in-game options.

I rolled back my to my previous windows 10 version and everything went back to normal !!

Conclusion :
Maybe that's just the "SLI" that is affected , but maybe not.
Are the devs aware of such problems ? (this windows10 update is pretty new, a few days only I think).
I was wondering, you know, maybe players who complained about lag on the last alpha test had done the win10 update and that could explain such issues. I think it is worth looking at.

Anyone else have run in such issues already ? (you can simply rollback through the windows update panel, but careful because it seems that some people even have their pc unusable after that update :-/ !!!).

Seems like I'm not the only one : https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/956355/sli-not-working-as-it-should-after-windows-10-anniversary-update-980tis-/#4948955 and that it does affect the SLI setup.

    Currently, there is/was no SLI support in the game. You're lucky if it was working! SLI support will be coming down the line, from what I've heard :)

    Ah ! Well it worked just fine for me :p ! I don't think I was running on a single gpu in the game (unless the game was sized at 1080p, I don't think I was able to check the in-game resolution).

    Just so you know, NVIDIA just published a new driver yesterday (for those who already installed Win10 64bits Anniversary Update):
    http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/105851
    Along with the documentation :

    That geforce post is mine :P and today just updated to AU and the latest drivers to test again, same freaking issue, SLI is broken and no one seems to care.

    CoD will work fine if you disable the SLI, but forget about 60FPS @4k without it

    Hey there :), welcome on the forum ! Thanks for the intel regarding the latest driver !
    I did not update as everything works just fine for me now that I rolled back. I'm going to do a system backup with acronis and wait a few weeks (months?) for the next win updates :p...

    Just so you know, I had opened a discussion on steam as well : http://steamcommunity.com/app/311210/discussions/0/353916838206291612/
    Someone advised the following :
    After installing the AU.

    Google how to uninstall the XBOX app.
    Download DDU, uninstall your graphics drivers. Re-install your graphics drivers.

    Good to go then.

    980Ti SLI working just like before the AU.
    So if you're up for the tests (who said guinea pig :p ?) , feel free to try :D.

    Well thanks for the intel :). So have you actually tested drivers starting from the 359 :D ??
    So to conclude, you either run on a previous windows version "or" a very old driver one :p ? Seems like I'm going to stick to the 1511 build for a while lol. Thanks for all the effort ;), that might be very helpful in case win10 manage to force the update in the end.

    Quick update : problem is now solved with the latest upgrades (now win10 build 1607 + latest patches + latest nvidia driver dont do any damage anymore :) ).
