SLI on an AMD board.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So my mobo is in my sig. I've heard of some people doing an SLI hack on boards that only support crossfire. I was curious if 1. It really does work, and 2. Does it scale well?

I just got me a 560 and wondered if getting another one would be worth it.

I'm running GTX 260 SLI on 790GX chipset. It works just as well as any NVidia supported chipset it scales great (depends on the game too ).

not true. The bridge only helps it transfer the data faster between the two cards. You can run sli without the bridge but would be recommended to run with it. It only costs like $5-$9

It is true. Ever tried running SLI on high-end cards without a bridge? I bet you didnt, cuz it works like ****. The days of running SLI without a bridge are over since the 7-series.

Cool beans. Thanks for the help. Are there different types of SLI hacks? Different programs? One being better than another?

I have it works just fine. In game you dont even notice a difference. Benchmarking yes it will, w/ m3d vantage, it will +200 to +500 point difference w/ the bridge.

As much money we all blow on computers, I didn't think a $10 sli bridge would cause this much debate. Thanks for the help though!
