If it was a CPU bottleneck then why are the single cards so much faster. They would have the same CPU bottleneck.

It makes no sense that under DX11 1080p is slower than a single card but in DX12 it's the 4k resolution that is slower than a single card. In DX11 the 4k resolution is 50% or more faster than a single card, but in DX12 it's 1080p that is nearly 50% faster than a single card.

The only logical reason I can think of for that is that the drivers are broken. And if we assume that the drivers are broken then we should probably assume that none of the benchmarks are very reliable.

It's not so simple this time round. The support for HB SLI is built into the core itself, the bridge itself is passive again. I am also fully expecting Nvidia to have not shared the details about how this works till the last minute.

Yes, I know the HB SLI Bridge is used by the Pascal architecture. That still doesn't explain why it's taking NVIDIA and their partners such a long time to manufacture a relatively simple physical item, the new bridge. If you are going to announce something such as the new bridge as a core component of your product release, actually have it available with your product.

It would be nice if they actually had 1080s available for their release. Its the middle of June now and I've been on newegg every day trying to grab a card and they sell out in minutes. If it is not a founders edition its a complete unicorn
