I posted this as a comment on an already long thread but i think this deserves the title of news:

Quote:
According to Nvidia themselves, "Titan V does not support SLI or NV Link"
Here is the link that supports that: Guru3D link

What do you guys think?

Do you guys think SLI is doomed already?

Yeah no NV link either apparently... "OOPS" - the folks who already bought two on launch.

EDIT: Referring to gamers specifically.

You don't necessarily need SLI to run parallel compute workloads, As far as I remember rendering with Nvidia Iray via GPU acceleration in 3ds Max will nag at you to disable SLI prior to rendering a scene. Disabled SLI and both cards in my rig where 100% utilized rendering a large scene file.

The same can be said for many of those consumer cards you find bunched up in a rackmount case. You don't need it unless an application requires it specifically.

^^ What he said.
SLI is for games.
Multi-GPU works for GPGPU with SLI disabled. Whether the SLI bridge is attached or not, does not matter.

Oh, and yes, SLI is doomed.

Sorry, I was referring to the gamers who already purchased them in pairs.

I can tell you there are plenty of people NOT doing their homework then. Just go through this thread. Either people are bluffing on their claimed purchases or there are going to be a bunch of disappointed, poorer individuals.

I'm not attacking what you said lol. I'm just stating what I've read thinking it was funny that people jump on a day-one launch without doing their research. If anything I'm solidifying your point

This picture nearly caused me a heart attack. This is awesomeness in one picture. Sadly it can't be used for gaming.

It's all good. I did not mean to be argumentative either.

Oh and by the way... I bought Titan Black on its launch date.

And then I bought 3 more soon after.
Still have them running in my sig rig. That's mostly for HPC.
Expensive but Titan V is only now coming out to beat them. 3x the price and 4x the performance (FP64) of a Titan Black.

Directx 12 will still support multi gpu.
I´m just glad nvidia is going away from the sli adapter.

But what will happen with old games that isn´t directx 12?

Yeah, from what it looks like Titan V isn't even kind of a gaming card. It would like buying a Tesla or Quadro to play games.

Brave individual... I'm sure you did your homework, though.

I see this Titan V as what Titan started out as: a weird/goofy blend of Quadro and top-end gaming card. The first Titan was the same way: Compute/Gaming. The subsequent ones were essentially just X80TI-Plus cards. This is just going back to the original lineage of Titan.

Anyone that spends 6k on gpu's for gaming better be at the point they don't need to do their homework since the money isn't a thing otherwise they might have a problem.

That's what i was thinking since they are pushing machine learning with this launch. I dont think this is the gaming card which is why SLI is not implemented.

Why would it? This is not a gaming card.
