SLI is dead so keep your 2060, even if it was not dead 2 980 wouldn't match the 2060.

I dont think 980Ti SLI can beat a single 2060 in actual games (aside from some really special cases) so 980 SLI is clearly weaker. Also new games basically dont work with SLI properly and it's more of a benchmark toy now

how come if i may ask?

From what I know it's that the cost of SLI (budget, parts and power-wise) outweighs the added performance it provides to a select number of video games. It doesn't make rendering and editing smoother, either.

 

But hey if you like 120fps+ Minecraft with RTX on then you do you.

if you do decide to go SLI tho then go for a dual $499 2070 Super setup and you beat a 2080 Ti in price and most game performance marks.
