Well there's not even stock on the nVidia site.

There is nothing really new at the top end performance wise from NV either, if you call 15% a good upgrade then you might have an option. Otherwise what pascal brings to the table so far is pretty ho hum , apart from power savings.

So it just leaves a lot of people waiting for something better .. in either camp.

The 750Ti was released when mining was still alive. Therefore it did have some utility from its lower power draw standpoint, but with mining out of the way the RX480 doesn't get the accolades. That is my take on it.. Just all due to timing.

three systems, each tested three times with both bridges, and they all had the same result.
the old bridge was a hard three slot SLI bridge that you'd get with a higher end motherboard. pretty sure it was an Asus bridge. no LED.



edit: oh and not to mention, the new bridge you have to dremel the corners to fit if you plan to watercool with EK. EK says they're designing a new bridge, which doesn't make sense. they're inlet/outlet port locations were poorly overlooked seeing as these new HB bridges were a key marketing gimmick with the new cards. 99% sure other waterblock companies have their inlet/outlet more towards the middle of the card to accommodate this

Hmmm, I think a three way bridge invalidates your result as it is not a substitute for a "two way" bridge. It is just a one way bridge passed between six points.

Very good point you raise.
Might have to do some testing of my own. I'll post up the results if I get a chance, with fps and frametimes..

The OP on this thread should change the title to "Not-Surprisingly... nothing is gained by Nvidia's new bridge... Except the extra money Nvidia is milking out of its customers that is!" biggrin.gif

That makes no sense, there were gains in fps and presumably frametimes.

I wouldn't either. They made it out like it was something substantial. I'd hardly call the gains (if you want to call them that) much to get excited about. Only my OP though. Which counts for nothing.
