FAR + SLI FIX = 1080p/60FPS
Combining FAR + SLI Fix now gives me constant 60FPS while it ran at 40FPS before.

Fullscreen Fix using FAR

To enable SLi you need to download Nvidia Inspector.
Open it, create a new profile called NieR Automata (doesn't matter what you name it).
Add nier.exe to the profile.
At the Sli compatibility bits, put in 0x080116F5 (I put on all three)
Scrolling down to "Number of GPUs to use on SLI rendering mode" I selected two.
Hit apply.

Thats literally it. This tells the game to use sli profile from Battlefield 1 and it works 100%

Wish I could save this discussion somehow. Don't have the game yet, but this sounds good. Thanks.
I have an SLI and constantly gets depressed with how almost every game that came out in the past few years have no SLI support, especially big AAA games.
DDDA, DOOM, F4, Obduction, Nier, Tomb Raider and more and more...

Can anyone else confirm this works? I don't like using Nvidia Inspector, haven't had it installed for years. Does forcing AFR2 works?

Did you make sure there are no glitches, sutterings and so on?

1. Download and install FAR.
2. Browse to the NieR installation folder.
3. Open dxgi.ini in Notepad and change the values of these rows:
[NVIDIA.SLI] CompatibilityBits=0x080004F1 Mode=Auto NumberOfGPUs=Auto Override=true
3. Save the file and close it.
4. Right click NieRAutomata.exe and choose "Run as administrator".
5. FAR will then automatically create a Nvidia profile for the game using the configured flags.

Minor note: As you can see in the above example I'm using the bit 0x080004F1 (Mirror's Edge: Catalyst) myself. It seems to work fine on my 2x 980 setup and I've played over 15 hours without noticing any artifacts or glitches.

Stupid question.
What is FAR?
Googling FAR does not get me anywhere since it's fairly common word.
Also, I don't find the dxgi.ini in the installation folder. Is that a version issue you think?

Thanks for all the tips though I hope it works!

Read New Players: Essentials / FAQ.

Then check out my Tweak Guide which includes updated SLI instructions for when using FAR:

Is there any chance you have the profile because the video doesn't show it, and the file (from gdrive) in the description is corrupted/damaged.
Thanks.

0x080116F5 profile is causing very significant issue with picture quality, it dims the entire game to the point where some of the darker scenes are barely readable. This happens for me with GTX 1080 SLI at 3440x1440, using FAR and texture mod. 0x080004F1 profile menitoned in this thread is much better as it does not interfere with picture and frametime graph is almost flat. I was getting pretty heavy FPS drops to low 40s on single card when maxed out, now 60 stable all the time with perfect frametimes (excluding rare stutters inherent to the game, not related to SLI). But I have to say that even though the game is wonderful artistically, it has like the worst requirements to graphics quality ratio I have seen in long time. I really needed this second card badly. Enough to say that The Witcher 3 was much closer to running on a single card on Ultra than Nier Automata...

I just noticed that 0x080004F1 is degrading the quality of native Anisotropic Filtering. I didn't notice that before because I applied the one from Nvidia Control Panel right after installing the game. So make sure you set x16 Anisotropic Filtering in Nvidia Control Panel if you want to use this profile, otherwise textures will be terribly blurry.

Aside from that perfect scaling, flat frametime graph and no visual artifacts. Here is a video showcasing that with all info you need in the description:
