[TPU] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Doesn't Support SLI? Reference PCB Difficult to Mod - Page 3

post #21 of 110
Watch it JUST edge out the RX 480 in benchmarks now.

However, 8 to 12 months later, it will be 20% slower. Good ol' Gimpvidia. This card just looks horrific. Especially at the price tags being thrown around in this thread. 350 euro? Better not be true....

Maybe check eBay to get some nice IDE HDDs.

Maybe because there are almost no IDE HDDs in the market for the consumers, while a huge lot of the consumers still have DVI monitors? rolleyes.gif

I still rolled with a DVI/VGA monitor up until November 2015 when I got this XB271HU. I still use the 1080p DVI monitor as a second screen as well.

I also got 3 Titan X's with that DVI monitor without even checking to see if the Titan X had a DVI connector biggrin.gif (Thankfully it did)

I'd imagine DVI is probably still pretty popular among non high refresh-rate/gaming screens.

Wait VGA and DVI are in the same boat?

the mantra never gets old redface.gif

I mean AMD doesnt even need to release decent cards anymore - regardless of how they perform, AMD fans will still buy them, shrug and say that Nvidia will automatically get 20% slower X months later and then AMD will surely win redface.gif

It's a perfectly serviceable digital interlink and has wide market adoption. It's similar to Apple's unnecessary push to replace the 3.5 mm audio jack. Old, not obsolete. Not yet. If you need things that DVI can't do, well, lucky for you HDMI and DP are both available.

Fantastic. SLI is nothing more then a waste and poor scaling. Always has and always will be poor. Its just their for e-peen status. rolleyes.gif

don't try to talk sense, no reason to bother, some people just want to be angry without any reason or purpose.

I mean there is no practical difference between dvi and hdmi in the resolutions it can support. They're both digital connections. only difference of course is the audio.

1080 = new performance
1070 = Replace 980TI/TITAN X
1060 = Replace 980?
1050 = Replace 970?

That's my logic too.

I was thinking the same, seems that if you want to remove the heatsink for a water block you probably need to have the cables for the 6 pin laying around or have to mod the card and add a 6pin directly to the pcb...

So weird that they choose to have it extended...., unless it have the 6pin connector pointing to the back and have the extender made of plastic that route the 6pin... that will be nicer...

EDIT: after looking the back of the pcb it seems that there is not normal 6pin connector like with the RX 480 (for example)... frown.gif
