  1. 1. Should I sli bridge 1070tis? I have a ryzen 5 360.



For gaming..? No. It won’t help performance in almost any meaningful way in almost every game, some games it will actually hurt performance. It looks cool, it sounds cool, but it doesn’t actually help performance - SLI is dead ;(

If you have to ask then the answer is basically no. If you are going to run dual cards (which you certainly can do), then you're better off leaving them separate and using them for separate tasks. F@h is a great way to use extra GPU resources.
