cant sli 3080's. onyl can sli 3090's. so better with single 3090 when you can buy them. 

 

founders is decent

Sli is dead now. Nvidia basically said we will stop supporting it. So just get a single 3090. The 3090 isn't out yet so we do not know which card works with waterblocks.

Founders have traditionally been the best ones to cool support wise since not everyone makes 3rd party PCB blocks and especially not right away.

 

That said, there weren't even 3rd party Titan class cards and the cards aren't out yet, so you will not have a useful answer for quite some time.

To watercool, i think you should buy the AIB model, as the FE has a different board layout may not be compatible with after market waterblock.

I haven't seen anyone attempting to add waterblock on the FE.

As for the difference between 80 and 90, i guess there will be no difference in board design apart from the SLI bridge.

SLI has been dead a while.

He's gonna do it anyway.

It's been dead for a long time I'm aware but this is an official statement finally that it is dead.

Reference or FE board. Doesn't matter what AIB you want to buy since the power and temp crippling is worse on Ampere than it was on Turing.

The statement says SLI profiles are going away and that they are focusing on working with devs to bake support directly into games. (Of course it's clever speak)

That said, I'm entirely certain he just wants two big ole GPU because reasons like anyone else who still does SLI lol.

think the FE vram was reported running hot on the cooler

but if the waterblock can cool it well, no prob

the power delivery was said to be good for FE, but i havent seen any in-depth PCB analysis* yet so im not too sure myself.

 

*  there are probably some out there, probably techpowerup or something 

 

edit: for 3080, anyway

3090 could be different


Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I actually use multi GPU for reasons beyond "SLI" but sure.

That's a funny meme.

Just curious, outside gaming, if a program can use SLI and all the combined resource, say 24gbx2 vram?

No, that's a full fat NVLink feature, but most multi GPU workloads don't run over SLI. They simply address the cards individually.

but to run NVLink you need to plug the bridge on the sli enabled card isn't it?

Either nvlink is used (not the half assed version on the 3090) or the normal way is to just use the gpu's as their own entity. Some renderers give 1 frame to one card the next to the other, different tasks or just different sections of the frame.

What I mean by full-fat NVLink is that it's a Quadro only feature to be able to use the memory of both cards.

You can't do this with the SLI over NVLink that GeForce cards use. It's a segmented implementation.

Be careful FE and Reference designs are different boards. The first round of waterblocks from EK I think were for Reference design (AIB cards) and not FE cards.

I just want it for older games, and maybe rendering, benchmarking too.

 

That's it really.

Idk how, but I guessed that was the reason lol.

Though even if you had none, it's your money and your business lol.

The FE cards get the most waterblocks, period. Always have, so your notion that aftermarket blocks are mostly for AIB cards is plain wrong. Though this gen FE doesn't get the reference design, so who knows what waterblock makers are doing this time around.
