2-way sli or crossfire

Recommended Posts

2x 2080 Ti or 2x Titan RTX for best performance. But for the vast majority of people, a single card is the best option.

The best single card you can afford, otherwise SLI as Nvidia has been beating out AMD at the very top.

SLI & crossfire don't have great value to performance. If you really want to go this route, rtx cards seem to perform the best

Traditionally NVIDIA has given better results as far as minimizing microstuttering. But AMD has supposedly upped their game to combat this.

 

However, neither are really that good because you need to either hope the drivers have an optimized profile or you have to tweak the drivers using a third party tool to get the best results. And even then, the "best results" is likely never going to be anywhere close to double the performance.

Unless you have situations that land you with a duplicate GPU its not worth it.  Ive Crossfired - its more hassle than performance gains (when scales well its nice, but not much does - same for SLI really).  Im going to Crossfire again when I replace 1 of my R9 Fury's (because I have the board, GPU's and PSU to do it already) just because but its situational not intentional.
