My m18x (2x gtx770m) starts stuttering every 20-30 seconds for about a minute on some games like Tekken 7 and Gta5, but works fine on older games. Also, the option to have them in SLI does not show up on the nvidia control panel (it did before).

It's possible that one of your cards is dead/dying or maybe the SLI cable has failed. Does it show both cards in Device Manager?


Skiddadloo

Yes, both devices are shown in the Device Manager. Is there a way for me to switch to the second graphics card (im assuming the main one has been causing issues)?

I believe that you need an active card sitting in the primary spot so if there is an issue with it, I think you have to physically swap the cards. I'm not 100% sure but that's what I've previously heard.

Check if your RAM usage is spiking. That's another factor of stuttering.

My RAM usage does spike when the game starts stuttering. How can I fix this?
