Asus Tuf Gaming X570-Plus SLI support?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Pretty simple question and possibly a major oversight on my part from upgrading from my old X470 board to a new X570 board for that sweet PCIe Gen 4.0. Does the Asus Tuf Gaming X570-Plus (non-WiFi) support SLI? It lists Crossfire under technical specs, but on an image on Newegg describing the board it lists both SLI and Crossfire. I am hoping I didn't just make my second graphics card completely useless or that was a nice waste. Any thoughts?

That image is just a generic X570 promotional thing, not something specific to this motherboard. This motherboard only has Crossfire (2 way) in terms of multi-GPU support:

Currently there are no Nvidia card with PCIE 4.0 though, please keep in mind you need Ryzen 3000 for PCIE 4.0 too.


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

No SLI support, the second PCIe slot is only x4 (SLI needs at least x8 - it's irrelevant that the bandwidth of PCIe4 x4 is basically PCIe3 x8)

There are also no Nvidia GPUs that support PCIe4 at the moment. That could change with the release of Ampere.

If I'm understanding correctly, even if I have a 3900X with this board, there is no way to enable SLI?

Yes, that's correct.

Bummer. Well, at least I can take advantage of the PCIe 4.0 NVME drive I purchased with the board.
