Does 7DTD benefit from two GPUs (non-SLI/CF)?

If you assigned affinity through task manager it won't work with eac, however if you do the shortcut route and set the target to the 7dtdeac exe it will work. 

I had set the shortcut for 7daystodie.exe - was actually not aware of the eac binary. 
But better to have it stated here for all so they do not fail on the same route - or better even, banning themselves in the process.

I once read somewhere that it is possible to use a 2nd graphicscard (non-sli) as accelerator. But the software has to support this, and it doesn't really scale, because it just can offload certain kinds of workload to the second gpu. Iirc in that case i read about only PhysX calculations where handed to the second gpu.

 

Even if 7d2d (or unity out of the box) would be able to use the second GPU for something in that way, i'd still not expect a reasonable performance increase.

I've been using the eac affinity shortcut for a long time never been banned.

I have done this, but you end up losing some CPU performance to the software that's managing the workloads. I have done this with a pair of 1060's, and the results were negligible. (And to be fair, it's the only way to team a pair of 1060's together since they have no SLI bridge.)
