An interesting observation at 1080 there isn't that much difference between the 70 sli and 80 sli, I know this is a bad word but are they getting bottlenecked by the system when running in 1080?

Always good to see the multi GPU reviews.

I have linked to it in the owners thread over at OCUK.

SLI MSI Gaming Xs do look good together.

Well as the owner of a 970SLI rig for the last two years I can't praise enough my experience with a dual card setup.

All the games I play work flawlessly with it (BF4, GTV V, W3,Project Cars) enabling all of them to run at a solid 60fps with maxed out settings at resolutions up to 1440p, and they are all playable to a locked 30fps at 4K.

Two 970's are still good enough to this day, so much so that I can easily skip this first generation of Pascal cards, as the only card with any sort of performance gain over 970SLI is the 1080, which is only about 25-30% faster, so not really worth it IMO.

If anyone is unsure of 1070SLI, I'd say go for it, they will easily give you 2-3years worth of 60fps, maxed out gameplay.
