EVGA Pro SLI Bridges. Faster than ordinary SLI cables?

EVGA claim that their new Pro SLI Bridges offer better performance than the competition and give the best performance at 120+ HZ and 4K + gaming.



Read more on EVGA's new custom SLI cables here.

So the 'go faster' chunks work? has this actually been proven? Or is this a lovely pseudo 'benefit'

Nope entirely unproven. I've told Tom to ask for samples, this needs to be proved or debunked.

Agreed, would be hilarious to see a 'premium performance' sli connector market pop up out of no where lol

"now with twice as many connectors, and twice as thick traces for extra stabilities"
"It's like SLi for your SLi, we're calling these new connectors SSLi bridges"

Dear Tom,

RE: SSLi connectors

Only if you promise to not debunk them, or tell people they are worse/the same :P

Yours

The only way Tom would be able to review any EVGA product now was if he had a cane and a golden retriever next to him!!!

Cables are cables! Using Platinum shrouds and adding lights just to look fancy and add more price just don't make any sense. EVGA's claim of better performance using their V2 bridge is something to be proven.
