You aren't making sense... with multiple GPU's you are limited to the VRAM per card (or for the lowest amount on each card). If you have two 6GB cards that doesn't make 12GB of VRAM available... it is only 6GB. Like Bliaze170 stated, if you had a 6GB and a 3GB card, you will only have 3GB total usable.

If this is what he was trying to convey, then I agree.

So its official soulwrath doesn't know what he's talking about
what KP is trying to say is memory does not stack..

I hate all the I D 10 T users that have to say I am wrong for the sake of arguing. (1000$ is not hard to spend on a custom loop. I haven't even finished and I am undoubtedly past the 1000 mark, I bought alot of specific EOL parts that some were not cheap but I saved money elsewhere buying used, If you want a watercooling system done right and looking showable it's not cheap)


anyways. As far as vram goes, if you want 4K you should probably go with the evga 6GB vid cards
6+6 does not equal 12
it equalls six.. the video cards have the exact same data on them and they don't divide it amoughst the 2.
they are mirror images of eachother SLI/CFX is purely to broaden the ability of the GPUs.

the memory is just there for the gpu. it can't acess memory on another card.


as someone eloquently told me "google.' can gpus stack memory''
