8x/8x PCI-E 2.0 SLI with 670 @ 1440p

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Will I run into any bandwidth issues using 8x 2.0 slots with two 670's on a 1440p monitor? Would I be better off getting a Z77/Ivy combo?

My guess is no but I just wanted to get some thoughts from you guys thumb.gif

It might make some very small difference, but certainly not enough to justify a new CPU.

It'll make ZERO difference.

The higher the resolution the more bandwidth you will need. Also depend in the game. HD 6990 was fine even with PCI-E 2.0 @ 8x. To know for sure OC cards and RUN some benchmarks. If performance increase is low you might be held back.

You'd only notice the difference in benchmark scores, and even then it'd probably be within margin of error.

In gaming no, in compute, a bit.
