Its about time someone got those dual GPU profiles out for Dota... I mean you would unlikely need more than a single GPU to run the game in the first place, but if you were to have SLI on then you these annoying as frame dips etc... My 980m's are not able to run DOTA 2 with SLI on, have to restart and turn it off b4 I play zzzQuote

Idk what you're talking about.. I was talking about Afterburner, GPU Tweak, etc. Since they take forever to update. Heck you can't even find GPU Tweak 2 onlineQuote
