[HWUnboxed]Nvidia’s HB SLI Bridge – Surprising gains! GTX 1080 SLI Testing Inside! - Page 14

post #131 of 169
Has anyone ran the nvidia bridge with an EK water block? I thought I had seen someone modify the bridge to work.

Sorry for the double post this forum doesn't allow edit thru Tapatalk. I will be using the bridge with a 980ti not sure if EK has the same spacing on there inlet/outlet on the cards

This is such a sad joke. It's not "high bandwidth" it's "high speed". They're selling lies again.

Bandwidth is how many channels, AGP has twice the 'bandwidth' of PCIe but PCIe is much much faster per channel.

Bandwidth is bits/sec, since gen 1 they have increased both the frequency and the channel width, both have the effect of increasing the bandwidth. Compared to any previous SLI bridge, this is "high bandwidth" yielding double the bandwidth of the LED bridges, and 3 and a quarter times the bandwidth of the original bridges.

No lies, just you misunderstanding what bandwidth means.

In retrospect, this is pretty funny

Bandwidth is how many channels, AGP has twice the 'bandwidth' of PCIe but PCIe is much much faster per channel.

Bandwidth is how much data can be transmitted in a given period of time, not how many channels there are although that plays a part. PCIe has higher bandwidth than AGP for the reasons you said, just like how IDE has lower bandwidth than SATA.

Welp got mine in and at 2k on 980ti no matter what I threw at it there was no change in fps unless there is some secret option I have to enable that I have overlooked. I did however paint it and remove that silly green light aabd647f1c257d6d6b0cc101829cf76c.jpg

Maxwell doesn't support the maximum bandwidth of the new HB bridge. Nvidia was pretty clear about that.

Looking at getting 2 1080s or perhaps a couple Titan X and putting EK blocks on it. Has anybody got the HB bridge to fit with the new EK blocks? If so, what did you need to do to get it to fit?
