DUAL GPU (3090 x 2080super-xc-ultra) IS IT WORTH?

Budget (including currency): none

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming, Streaming

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I am currently running ryzen 9, evga 2080 super xc ultra, 32g ram, 850w power supply... I want to know if it would be worth it to try to run dual GPU when I get a 30 series. or should I build another PC around the 2080. Open to all ideas!

you cant use them together for gaming at least so unless you have a compute workload i dont see why you would keep the 2080

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

SLI is dying quietly, so not worth the cost to benefit ratio

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

No, in gaming they can't work together with the exception of like, 1 or 2 games using explicit multi-GPU (a very rarely used DX12 feature). As for streaming, either card can do NVENC encoding while gaming without breaking a sweat, so no help there either. 

If you wanna use one card in a 2nd build, that's good if you have a use case. If not, sell it, prices are high now, you'll make a good amount of money back

Main Gaming Rig: i7-7700K @ 5.0 GHz, GTX 1080 Ti, 32GB DDR4 2400, Modded Corsair 280x Case, Full Soft Watercooling
Second Testbench Rig: i7-4770K @ 4.6 GHz, RX 580 (air cooled), 16GB DDR3 1866, Thermaltake Core P3 White TG, CPU Soft Watercooling

Third Server Rig: R7 1700X @ 4.0 GHz, GTX 1080 Ti, 32GB DDR4 3000, Fractal Core 500, Full Soft Watercooling

Fourth LAN Rig: R5 3600X @ AGESA pls, RTX 2070, 32 GB DDR4 3200, Dan Case A4-SFV V4, 120mm AIO for the CPU

Fifth Router Rig: R3 2200G @ stock, 4GB DDR4 2400, what are cases, stock cooler
 

I don't have a problem...

Sell the card, there's plenty of people begging for a gaming card. You might sell it close to what you've paid.

Multi GPU is dead, it's a waste of energy.

GPU as powerful as 3090 can do almost everything on it's own.
