News: Nvidia GTX1080 and GTX1070 will not support 3-4 way SLI for Gaming

Well as the title says; PCPer reported the news recently that Nvidia changed their minds and will not support 3 and 4 way SLI for gaming. They will enable it for certain benchmarks though. In all honesty though this is not really an issue as the performance gains above 2 cards is minimal. Check the video for the details.

  • To SLI or Not; That is the question. My official answer is never SLI if there is a single card solution that offers similar performance. Some games simply don't support it or is scales poorly; not to mention the heat output of two cards vs one. Even if the GPU temps are okay, you will be surprised how quickly a room can warm up with that much heat output.
