Not sure why people go out and buy a bunch of something without doing their homework first.

Four cards is just his thing. He's done it with every new release all the way back to the 580 days as far as I can remember...

Yep, pretty much. Plus, think he always runs like three monitors too.

I actually have a Dell Ultrasharp I bought off him when he had three of the things.

...yes, lot's of rads in that big case ph34r-smiley.gif > but heat is why the oc we settled on was 'mild' (along with dual PSU "reasonable loads" which is the other side of the heat argument) .

As to this thread's issue of 3 or 4 SLI / CF, there are lots folks who like to build multiple-monitor setups...and as you suggested, one can use a dual or triple SLI bridge for gaming and have the other cards either idle until a big compute task comes up, or have the remaining ones crunch away in the background. I guess the point is that folks would at least like to have the option to go with 3 or 4 cards and SLI potentially enabled.

I remember during the GK110 we would never get a dual GPU on a single card solution because of the power and thermal issues (even more so for AMD). But nVidia actually gave up the Titan Z. But you know it would have been far easier for them to make GTX 990 with two Maxwell GM204.

Also I miss the days of AIB specials. Asus was the last one to do something stupid and crazy like the Asus MARS GTX 760x2... miss crap like that.

EDIT GM204 not GM104.

I know it's the wrong term but it is used that way and technically it is 4 gpu's being used at once. Does Quad SLi have the same scaling issues as 4way SLi? I have never owned or cared about a dual gpu card so I have no idea.

You get less performance for more money. The return diminishes almost completely when you buy a 3rd card, and goes the opposite way on the 4th. Don't get me started on how many games either don't play nice with multiple cards or simply don't run them at all.

It's funny how Nvidia was so much superior (so I've been told) in Sli than AMD.
AMD develops superior crossfire tech,develops the API to use MDA which gets rid of the need for crossfire profiles,and the spin is now you don't need more than 2 GPU's. cheers.gif

I am sure more than 98% of people on OCN don't care and will not go to 3 Way SLI+ anyway .

So do I. When I disagreed about this SLI debacle because id already been told there are no plans for 3/4-way SLI support about a month ago I was off my rocker because JayzNonsense knew better. Oh Jay (see what I did there? biggrin.gif), in your land of 600,000 blind, one-eyed you is king.

you dont remember some of the bonkers AMD cards? around that era we had the Powercolour Devil13 HD7990 (2x 7970), ASUS ARES II which was 2x GHz edition 7970's, We also had a reference R9 295x2 from AMD themselves and and ASUS ARES III which is two R9 290 GPU's and Also AMD's own reference Pro Duo again which is two Fury's. AMD have been giving every generation of GPU's the dual GPU treatment

Though Nvidias side seems lacking, they did put out the Titan Z but ASUS have seemed to make less MARS cards than they have ARES ones for some reason

2cents.gif Apart from that, my own builds have included 4 quad-SLI builds over the recent years, and while some of the performance gains w/ 3 + 4 were marginal, they certainly were fun and I had few problems with the (few) games I play.

WOW that is so impressive. I really hate to see these kind of setups dissapear

Also what will happen to rigs used for rendering? and renderfarm servers?

I sure see a damn lot of 4way SLI/crossfire builds on here, at least the more popular build are bonkers

and TBH I agree with Joa3d43, people should have the option to do crazy sli setups even if nvidia don't suggest it they shouldnt lock us out of doing them, those 2% have the money to do it they should be allowed to do whatever the hell they want

I like seeing the insane rigs even if i can't afford one myself

Those setups won't disappear as they don't use SLI.

You might see a lot of 4-way SLI builds on these forums, but even here I'm certain less than 2 % of users have them. There are 467,985 members here, 2 % would be 9,360. I doubt there are that many users here running SLI, never mind 4-way SLI.
