To run tri or quad SLI on a Z170 board, you would need a PLX PEX8747. Granted, with Nvidia no longer supporting 3 and 4 way SLI in games, it is mostly for benchmarkers and they are better off using the HEDT platform. That's especially because high end boards with a PLX tend to be very expensive. I have noticed this generation that even boards that used to such as the Asus Z170 Maximus Extreme and the MSI Z170 XPower no longer have PLX chips. Gigabyte still does though, as does EVGA on the Z170 Classified.

Crossfire does run at x4 though. Even at PCIe 3.0 x4, the penalty isn't that bad.

So you could run x8/x8/x4 3-way Crossfire via the PCH. Granted it will be a bit less than x4, depending on what else uses that bandwidth.

Of course, this may not be a huge loss either way. Frame time tests show poor game scaling - save Crysis 3 and perhaps Battlefield 4.

So in that regard, the CryEngine and Frostbite Engines may be very good for multi-GPU.

This might change dramatically though with DX12, especially if Explicit Multi-Adapter gains steam (and most importantly it is split frame rendering, not alternate frame rendering, so frame times are improved, which is far more important that frame rates.

Oh, shucks, you're right. I was thinking Crossfire, but wrote SLI.

Huh, neat benchmarks. Not bad at all for the Fury X. 96% performance, all the way to x4 on 3.0.

Those triple-GPU benchmarks hurt my wallet just to look at, haha. Benchmarkers for sure.... on another note, DICE & Crytek are the only developers I see pushing GPUs in surprisingly strong ways. Hell, BF4 pushes GPUs, CPUs, and even RAM more than anything else out there, save maybe ARMA.

This'll be the most useless post here but I'm reading this thread in the dark in my room and saw "conjured up" which reminded me of the conjuring and now I'm scared

Don't forget CD Projekt Red! Possibly my favorite developer who came up with their own game engine (REDengine) and created the masterpiece Witcher franchise that has always pushed graphics to ungodly levels.

I mean Witcher 3 pretty much murders GPUs beyond 1440p.

If I'm coming off as a bit of a Witcher fanboy, that's because I am wheee.gif

220 hours sunk into W3. Send help.

Oh, crap! Sorry, you're right. I always look at Witcher 3 benches when I'm shopping--that's where the real stuff goes down.

hahaha, nice. biggrin.gif My brother loves it to death.
