1. Do you see anything that would impede optimal performance?
2. Will a 3 slot Bridge work on this MB or should I go with a 4 slot?
3. I am planning on ordering 2x Aorus RTX 2080 Super’s for video and use NVLink...
I have heard that the performance of NVLink for consumer grade video cards is only about 20% gain over standard SLI due to the bridge having to still operate in a master to slave configuration? Or, has the bridge and drivers been optimized to now allow in essence the doubling of the processing power due to it fully supporting NVLink and parallel processing like the commercial graphics cards?
thank you in advance for your time.
