Quick Question :-)-

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was wondering has any body ever tried hooking to differnt brands of graphics card same Series/model but differnt brand for example (MSI-7800GTX-XFX7800GTX) Together and seeing if it ever worked in sli mode.

I always wondered that and nobody has ever mentioned any thing that it did or didnt I wouldnt think it would but I was just wondering?

Well, I believe I have seen 2 cards in SLI Setup before, as long as they are both the same card Ex: 7900 GTX, 7900 GTX. they can be different brands. Maybe a n enthusiast could correct me or maybe im right.

Edit: BTW, could you fill out your system specs?

I've never done it. But, I would think the SLI drivers would have some difficulty with the clock speed difference between those two cards.

No, the faster card just runs at the slower cards' speed.

It may not work as efficiently, since there will be driver problems. I would not reccomend that.

I think with the newer cards it should work with the right drivers, they'll both run at the speed of the lowest clocked card though.
