sam nelsonthey said new cards faster in 2way thin old cards in 2way but maybe not in 3or4way
vsg28So what's going on here:
Sajinvsg28So what's going on here:All show and no go? Middle card being used for PhysX?
EVGA_JacobFUpdate: More info about SLI support will be coming soon, please stay tuned.
HeavyHemiSajinvsg28So what's going on here:All show and no go? Middle card being used for PhysX?Story behind image:One final thing to show off before we go dark (meaning we'll be under NDA embargo) is Nvidia's VR Fun House tech demo. It leverages massive amounts of PhysX, HairWorks, and other Nvidia technologies, and it's apparently more than a little demanding. How demanding? Nvidia had to use three—yes, three—GTX 1080 cards to keep Fun House running smoothly at 90 fps. The system was from OriginPC, and it was doing VR SLI on two of the GPUs, with the third GPU handling all the PhysX calculations. I suspect the PhysX aspect was overkill and would have worked fine on lower end GeForce cards, but it's still an impressive tour de force for Nvidia and Pascal.http://www.pcgamer.com/nv...070-features-detailed/

NIR_RimcIts officially on Nvidia forum
cursed_prophet2012NIR_RimcIts officially on Nvidia forum Nice find, although it still concrete the 10 series not supporting 3 or 4 way right ?
cursed_prophet2012maybe best way to think about it is, if nvidia used 3 1080s in the showroom (one being dedicated to physx) i think its a safe bet that 1080 will be restricted to 2 way, reason is that was perfect opportunity for nvidia to show case possibly 3-way sli with 4th being physx, being a booth of nvidia and all surely if 3 way was supported they have no issue bringing the 3rd card for tri sli as opposed to 2way+physx? but they stuck to 2 way, maybe we can read into this as being an accidental way of confirming only 2way support? or maybe im tripping nuts and over thinking this lol
Xavier Zepherious1080 supports 2,3 4 way SLi...the problem is that the HB bridge only works 2-way as of now - sacrificing any other card not getting any bandwidth - - look at the bridge - a standard single sli bridge is 1/2 that size wide HB bridge Duh!! comes to mind here - - ie 4 way sli bridge.... in a 2 way configmakes for double bandwidth that doesn't stop you from using a dedicated Physx or going double 2-way if Nvidia was that concerned with bandwidth then make a NVlink connector for the cards or devise new SLI transit protocol..ie sli 2.0
