i am geting a little worried now as why nvidia has disabled quad sli on gtx 760 even ---1st it was gtx 780 and now this --
 
can any one confirm please if this information is correct
@ jacobs
 
can we do quad gtx 760

    No, you can't do quad GTX 760

    Midrange has never had the quad-SLI capability; only 760, 660 Ti, 560 Ti 448-core, 465, 275, 55nm 260 and 9800GTX+ were 3-way capable.  All other "6" cards were 2-way SLI all the way back the 6-series only and that probably isn't going to change as multi-GPU setups have historically been the reign of less affordable models, and are their own incentive.

    For Intel processors, 0.122 x TDP = Continuous Amps at 12v [source].

    nvidia has seemed to make its motto to only enable on its highest tier, started before, seems now they want just the best of the best, hopefully a better reason than them just wanting to milk uber-enthusiasts

    First off Quad-SLI refers to 2x dual GPU cards in SLI. And 4-way SLI refers to 4x single GPU cards in SLI. I know it's 4 GPUs either way, it's just that this is the distinction that Nvidia makes so I thought I'd point it out.
     
    Secondly there is a reason that 4-way SLI only typically works with top tier cards. It's called diminishing returns. The more GPUS you add to an SLI setup, you will see less and less percentage of a performance increase with each card added. Nvidia knows this of course and doesn't obviously think it's worth it to them to offer mid range cards for 4-way SLI. I'm sure the performance just isn't there to justify it otherwise I'm sure they would allow it. But it's benchmarks where 4-way SLI shines, and for those benchmarking 4 cards, they are going to be buying the best.
     
    Not to mention for the money spent you could have better performance from a lesser quantity of higher range cards. You are always going to be better off with a lesser number of cards, that have a higher performing GPU.

    how come system builders get 4 way sli enabled gpus like gtx 780 and normal ppl dont -
     
    does nvidia provide special bios / drivers for system builders so that they can have that option .
     
    i saw on youtube a 4 way gtx 780 sli rig made by nightmare .
     
    so how come he is using 4 gpus

    I know it isn't an EVGA card, but wouldn't using the ASUS ROG MARS760-4GD5 actually give you a "Quad 760" setup?  So using two of these would give you 4x760 GPU's in one configuration.  I think this is the only way to get this type of setup as Asus seems to be the only company that spent the R&D to develop this.  It's a rather pointless card, imo, but it's there none-the-less.  4-Way no, but quad, yes.

    Nope still wont work. It's like the GTX 560 ti 2win, has the sli connector but still cannot do quad sli.

    According to Asus, it does support Quad SLI.
     
    I quote Asus website: "Working closely with NVIDIA, the MARS 760 is the world’s first GeForce GTX 760 capable of achieving quad-SLI, packing four GPUs in just two PCI-Express slots."

    4-way is really only worth it for benchmarking the top cards. It wouldn't be worth it in price or performance for mid-range cards.
    The part about 4-way SLI that makes people think it isn't worth it is solely because the models used (often high-end) which suffer bottlenecks of not enough resolution, games not pushing the absolute highest details for the sake of frame rates, and sometimes having a processor that isn't overclocked high enough. 
     
     
    If people tested older 4-way SLI/CFX setups (since those older high-end cards match newer midrange and slower cards) with new games that do push hardware better, or higher resolutions of today that weren't available back then, then they would see the true scaling.  Thus, modern midrange would actually scale better than modern high-end because they don't run into having too much graphics power for the system, CPU overclock and resolutions can cope with them better.
     
    Unfortunately, the situation is its own catch 22 because those that can afford such high-end multi-GPU scaling rarely wait long enough to see the benefits that don't appear early on.

    How can overclocking affect CPU lifespan? - TEC/Peltier definitions, formulas and temperature estimations

     
    For Intel processors, 0.122 x TDP = Continuous Amps at 12v [source].
