BF3PROSo easy to critique. A true skill is listening. Anyone can critique but not everyone can listen. I'm suing you for false advertisement Sajin, and the consumer protection agency will hear of this.Hahaha
MekhedI know but, they've only mentioned the 1080. Why didn't they say 1070 and 1080?
I am wondering if the TI and the Titan will allow more.. That is interesting
GrundleTimeWord on the street is there is an issue with the 10 series running more than 2 GPUs in SLI and supposedly this is being looked into at Nvidia. 2nd post down on the following link:http://www.overclock.net/t/1599440/geforce-nvidia-gtx-1080-1070-unveiled/340 Be nice if they fixed that but also be nice if developers start building support into the games at launch.
NazcaC2I wouldn't give up yet, I have a feeling they'll be releasing the 16 GB version with HBM2 later on as a few articles on the web have stated.
NazcaC2That's what I'm referring to.
SajinTheSadClownReword your title. It is very misleading. How is it misleading? If nvidia is only optimizing for sli then that clearly means 3-way & 4-way aren't getting optimizations.

stalinx20This does make complete sense for them to do this. The market value for people going 3x 4x SLI was not way up there. More coding, more SLI support means more money they pay their engineers. So, cut that back, and more money for the wise guys. Yep... Jen Hsun coming home with a fatter check and paying engineers less money. lmao...
EVGATech_BrandonSThere's a difference between this generation and the previous. There are 2 SLI connectors on the 1080, but they are both used by the SLI HB bridge for one SLI connection.
Scarlet-TechI do want to see an end user benchmark with the original SLI bridge and the HB SLI Bridge.
CoercionShamanScarlet-TechI do want to see an end user benchmark with the original SLI bridge and the HB SLI Bridge.I want to know if the old ones will even work. Several of the more 'reputable' sites state that the old bridge will not work at all as it is designed to pass the information across both connectors simultaneously. Without the new HB bridge, you won't be able to pass the data at all. I think that is what EVGATech_BrandonS was trying to get across earlier as well?
Maverick1776Guys NVidia is only showing what they reference, which is their own SLI bridge. And from what it looks like, the new design only allows 2 cards to be paired together. However, if you look at NVidia's old SLI bridges, they supported up to 3 cards. http://www.geforce.com/hardware/technology/sli/bridgesAftermarket companies like ASUS, EVGA, MSI, etc, create 4way SLI bridges. This doesn't imply that the GTX 1080 series is limited to 2 cards. Maybe by Nvidia's reference SLI bridges, yes. But it doesn't mean EVGA can't be like, ok well here's our 3 or 4way high bandwidth SLI bridge.
ShadowPh0xRunning a 3rd card dedicated to PhysX hasn't changed right? This only has to do with the new bridges right?
