If you run the cards in slots one and two you can see on the bios that both will run in 16X. If you run them in slots one and three, slot one will run at 16X and slot three will run in 8X. You will not notice the difference in gaming performance no matter which way you configure them. The SLI bridge that comes with the motherboard is only long enough to run slots one and two. I had to use an old Asus bridge I had from an old build to run slots one and three. I tried to search for that extra long solid Intel bridge shown in a lot of pictures that were circulated around when the GTX 690 first came out, and it does not seem to exist... at least for retail purchase. Probably something they made just for marketing purposes.
