So no Pascal Enthusiast key after all. good or bad?

I like it. Keeps things simple. So guy who has a gazzillion bucks cannot outdo ur average joe just by throwing more money at it.

Outdo? What are you on about? If you're talking about beating people in benchmarks that hasn't changed as 4-Way is still supported there, and even if it weren't you're never going to beat people on extreme cooling. You're also way off if you think that GTX 1080 SLI is what the average Joe has.

They told people there would be an Enthusiast Key, people bought cards, and then they told them there wouldn't be one. It's very scummy. I cannot see how killing multi-GPU beyond 2-Way is a good thing. It doesn't help people who don't use it, and it hurts people who do.

well ppl like me learn the hard way to stay away from multiple gpus.. No matter what nvidia/amd do is going to change that...fail after fail after fail on driver support and headaches..

1 gpu call it a day save that money on the 2nd extra gpu for a future upgrade down the road on a new gpu iteration...

I dont buy more full atx mobos, my last 4 mobos has been itx and matx...
Just for the sole reason or not ...

It is BS.. that is what it is. They are not only supporting it, but actively blocking more than 2 way SLI in the drivers.

It is people's hardware and their money. Users should be able to make custom profiles if they want to - not have options removed from them. Also really screwed up that they did this AFTER the card was released and people already bought them.

2 cards are not enough to play some games in 4k with all the settings maxed (like the division needed four titan X to run will all settings maxed. 2 1080s are close to 3 titan Xs)

I hope games support dx12 multi card support to form a logical video card, but I doubt they will.
