MSI GTX1080 Gaming X SLI Review



Who doesn't love a bit of Overkill, and courtesy of MSI we've got two GTX 1080s to run in SLI and see what performance we can squeeze from them.

Man, SLI looks appalling to my eyes. Either it's completely overkill unless you're at 4K—and even then it's sometimes not necessary (Tomb Raider)—or it doesn't work at all and in fact hinders your performance.

A nice reminder that multi GPU setups should be avoided if possible. 1070 vs RX480 CF keeps getting more and more angles.

So I have an interesting request...

Could we get the power draw for a locked / adaptive sync'd 60fps at 1080p / 1440p ?

Since 1080p is SO easy for these cards, It'd be interesting to know what watts you need to maintain solid 60fps performance (and the heat that generates).

I maintain 60fps in almost all titles (excluding Ark), at 90 watt per card and top out at 70c

Nice review. Do you think the High bandwidth SLI bridges would be any benefit? Maybe only for the high frame rate 1440p or 4K setups but I imagine they'll cost a bomb so would be interesting to see if they make any real world differences.

Nice review Tom and I must say I'm looking forward to your review of the 3x1440 monitor review when you do it on the SLI 1080's......gonna be wicked!
