Some questions

vt-x
 Share

So for my first pc build I bought a EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti XC Ultra Gaming, and then later a rtx 2080 TI Founder's Edition since I was thinking of doing 4k 144hz gaming, until some people on reddit said SLI is in a bad state, so I watched a YT vid where this guy used two RTX 2080 TIs and sometimes his frames would be delayed up to 44ms.

So I guess I'll probably be returning the evga one(or maybe the FE), as I couldn't cancel the order.

But i'm still curious, would it be possible to run the two in NVLINK-SLI? Since they're two different brands?

I contacted EVGA about it and they said:

Hello,

Thank you for contacting the EVGA Customer Service Team. No with the 20 series they use the NV Link not SLI. The cards have to be the same series product in order to being able to be used in the NV Link or SLI.

Regards,
EVGA

However, JayzTwoCents from youtube says it's just fine. Reference: https://youtu.be/cbvFb0IHTg0?t=67

So i'm not sure.

 

For my next question, would someone recommend me a good 4k 60hz monitor? I looked at the Acer Predator XB321HK, but on Amazon there are a lot of negative reviews stating the monitor has a 2yo GSync bug which causes the screen to black out.

 

And last question, would a 1000 watt PSU be enough to run the two rtx 2080 TIs in SLI?

 

edit: should've probably posted this in troubleshooting as only 2 of my questions are directly related to gpus, my bad. If a staff member can move it i'd appreciate it.

 

edit2:

just curious for the future(probably won't be doing SLI this time), but how do you guys select the bridge size for the NVLink?

It says:

But i'm not sure what that means.

NVLink will be configured in SLI mode, and you would be able to run them both in SLI. Although, I do believe the right call is single graphics card. Also, graphics card troubleshooting is appropriate for the graphics card subforum.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

You should be able to run those two cards with NVLink, but I wouldn't recommend it. If you have to return one, return the founder's edition one. The EVGA card will get better cooling. Also, I think you should go with a 1440p 144hz monitor instead of 4k 60hz. In my opinion, 1440p 144hz is the sweet spot for gaming. 

Main PC:

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X • Noctua NH-D15 • MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk • 2x8GB G.skill Trident Z Neo 3600MHz CL16 • MSI VENTUS 3X GeForce RTX 3070 OC • Samsung 970 Evo 1TB • Samsung 860 Evo 1TB • Cosair iCUE 465X RGB • Corsair RMx 750W (White)

 

Peripherals/Other:

ASUS VG27AQ • G PRO K/DA • G502 Hero K/DA • G733 K/DA • G840 K/DA • Oculus Quest 2 • Nintendo Switch (Rev. 2)

 

Laptop (Dell XPS 13):

Intel Core i7-1195G7 • Intel Iris Xe Graphics • 16GB LPDDR4x 4267MHz • 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD • 13.4" OLED 3.5K InfinityEdge Display (3456x2160, 400nit, touch). 

 

Got any questions about my system or peripherals? Feel free to tag me (@bellabichon) and I'll be happy to give you my two cents.

^^^ It still runs as SLI in the Nvidia settings, but it's using NVLink which AFAIK not only lets you pool your VRAM (so 22GB instead of just the 11GB from the top card), it's also a bit higher bandwidth. As for SLI support in games, which are you planning to play? I'm building my rig with SLI 1080s tonight, so if I have any of the games I can test them for you.

I will definitely be getting a 144hz 1440p monitor(probably the Dell Gaming S2716DGR), but I also want a 4k monitor for watching movies and stuff.

Quote people with the little arrow under their post, it gives them a notification that you responded. 

 

And you can watch 4K movies and YouTube off a decent Intel iGPU so you'll be fine on that front, and 1440p144Hz should be awesome (I play at 1080p144hz and it's pretty darn sweet).

I'm planning on playing mostly PUBG/Fortnite (but I heard it doesn't support SLI if I remember correctly). But I also intend to play tomb raider, etc. This is my first PC build(and I haven't done much gaming on my laptop since it has stuttering issues) so I guess i'll be doing a lot of gaming in my free time.

AFAIK Rise of The Tomb Raider scales very well, I'll defo be testing that myself tonight. I don't have Shadow though so I can't speak on that. And doubt PUBG/Fortnite support it but Fortnite is free so I could try that, but I'd have to murder my dignity in order to do so...
