I don't believe in coincidence. SLI is not working in VR, and soon it won't be working for the majority of 2D games, either. Game developers are not going to spend time optimizing for multiple GPUs when they already have to worry about multiple platforms already (PS4, XBOne, PC, tablet, etc). They are stretched thin as-is.

Couple this with the fact that Nvidia, since they won't be selling as many cards with SLI faltering, figures they need to make up that lost cash.. and I give you... Titan X!

SLI-haters have been spouting off the same nonsense about SLI for years now yet my SLI Titans are still plugging right along, working in every single game I play (small sample I admit). Perhaps in a few years you might be able to make this claim but as it stands SLI is still very relevant. And I mentioned the SLI-haters but I just can't understand what it is about dual card setups that certain people just find so threatening (I think at least some of it is rooted in dislike for the fact that their $1k GPU's can be beaten by slower, cheaper alternatives in SLI)? Its almost like some kind of obsession with these people to ejaculate bile and venom towards SLI/CF at every single opportunity even if that is not even the subject being discussed. Its almost like vegans or people who vape. Single card users simply can't help but make holier-than-thou comments about how superior single card setups are even if you are in a mobile phone thread, its crazy! rolleyes.gif

😂 single card setup is superior? We can disable SLI and still have 9 FLOPs

Having used 780M SLI and 970 SLI, I can attest that microstutter is real, and if you can perceive it, it really kills the enjoyment for you. So I'd say that's the #1 reason for most people.

Then there's times when SLI just isn't natively supported, and you feel like literally ripping the second card out of your machine and smashing it with a hammer. I know I ditched SLI and would never go back to multi-GPU again for precisely these two reasons.(well, it's a necessary evil for laptops, but with Pascal that may finally start to change)

You just said you have a small sample of games that do well with SLI; we don't all play Crisis or Battlefield games. If you are on a 60Hz monitor then I can understand why you think SLI has been an amazing experience.

Nevertheless, to make blanket statements like "SLI is useless and everybody should only use single GPU" is flat out wrong. Microstutter is such an overhyped and trivial issue to start with and there are very few AAA titles (if any?) that don't support multi-GPU either. Neither of those factors makes up for the fact that you can get a couple of 980Ti's that will absolutely wreck a 1080 for less money (and SLI just looks plain sexy in a rig). I won't ever go back to single GPU until Nvidia/AMD flat out stop supporting it...

What games have microstutter that I should check out?

Haven't dropped to a single GPU since the GTX 260 and I can't go back.

The Metro series... beautiful graphics that will eat your multi-GPUs, but the stutter is real. So bad at times, there appears to be time warps.

Any and all Ubisoft games. tongue.gif

But seriously, it's not a game dependent thing. Try running a demanding game in such a way that you're only average 45 FPS. It's already an unpleasant experience with a single GPU, and with SLI, you'll want to punch your screen out.

I can see microstutter but it doesn't even bother me personally (the hyperbole people go into when discussing it like "I can't even physically play a game if there is any microstutter" is silly). When I built my first rig years ago it had a single 560Ti in it and that thing would only get 20-25 FPS in some games yet I was somehow able to use and enjoy it just fine and that was actual stutter, not microstutter. I think people have just gotten a little spoiled these days and act like games are ever going to be 100% fluid like irl. I can notice stutters when I disable SLI to this day in games and benches but its not like I want to run out and kill myself or anything. Jeez...

It's subjective to be sure, so what works for one may not work for another.
