Can I use 2 GPUs in this motherboard?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Current odd build that has 2070Super and 2080Ti inserted in Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master.

It's currently using the 3 HDMI and 3 DP for the 6 displays like the one in the Riley's picture.

 

But I think it's a waste of good motherboard to be just using 4K x 6Displays.
I wanna switch that Gigabyte motherboard with the MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS.

 

Can that MSI mobo be able to use 2 GPUs?

PCIe lanes might not be full 16x but I'm okay with 2 of 8x GPU.

I don't have budget for a new GPU that has 6 outputs.
I'll have to do this with 2070supers and 2080Ti lying around the office.

 

Parts List

-------------
CPU : Ryzen 7 3800X
GPU : Asus Rog Strix 2070 Super + Zotec 2080 Ti

you dont need the PCIE X16 for folding, the PCIE X8 has same size (but half of pins) and is fine for crunching. Even the PCIE x1 has only a loss of ~5-8% if you add riser cable with PCIEx16 ending in them. Allready ran a lot of such machines in past...

That's what I'm looking for. It should be fine, right? I was thinking of getting PCIe Extension Cables and mount those GPUs in a vertical within a full tower case.

My favorite case is the mechify c and it is the best case and if you say otherwise you're lying
