SLI and Different Cards

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
If even possible to do so, would I get any kind of performance boost if I were to SLI my nVidia GTX 560(non ti) and 660 ti?

AFAIK with SLI the GPUs have to be the same,

Yeah, you could use it as a dedicated PhysX card, but otherwise SLI will not work.

 

EDIT: OK maybe it can work (source) but you wouldn't get as much of a boost as one would commonly expect from multiple cards.

So yeah you can SLi 2 different Nvidia GPU in your rig, just had to go away for a minute or two so i could dig up the details for you.
I have not done it myself yet but theres other people confirm it does work.

If you have the 2nd card just sat there anyway then why not give it a go.
