Haha, cracks are the worst. When building Optimus and testing everything out there, we're just shocked how easily blocks crack and nickel flakes and other cheap materials fall apart. Putting screws into acrylic is begging for cracks and stripped threads. These are expensive systems, liquid cooling component quality needs to be A+.My problem with the EK terminals (it is their waterblocks...) is that they cracked!!
When i used to run a few quad SLI systems i'd always buy extra blocks because i knew a few of them were going to crack.
One of the things that draws me to Optimus is the total quality of the blocks, not just the cooling. cracked block SUCK!
yes, multi GPU has to make a come back, that or cards have to double in power.
My TV can do 4k 120hz (assuming i had a hdmi 2.1 card).. but 1 GPU isn't getting that. Hell 4k 60 is a problem most of the time. RT also works with multi cards. If i were nvidia i'd be pushing SLI for high FPS @4k and RT (shadow of the TR, even for RT, needed 2 cards to rock 4k with all the eye candy. It supports SLI.)
hrmm.. cyberpunk... 4k... ray tracing... (in their demos they had to do ray tracing at 1080p booo! ) The Witcher 3 had 4 way sli support
(of course i'd still be using 4 way sli too.. so i might be a crazy person.)
