Since both are RTX2080's, yes you will be able to SLI them together. Please refer to it as SLI as NVLink is only on the Quadro cards. 

Actually it is NVLink now with the 2000 series.

oh my bad what is the die?

It's the GPU core. All 2080 cards have same core/die, all 2080Ti have same core/die, but 2080 and 2080Ti are not the same.

hello i wanted to know if its possible to run a 2 way Nvlink with two different models of the same GPU?

for say MSI 2080 RTX gaming X trio and AORUS GeForce RTX™ 2080 XTREME WATERFORCE?

or MSI 2080 RTX gaming X trio and MSI 2080 RTX sea hawk X?

thank you

As long as the die is the same between the cards, that is the only requirement. Since both are RTX2080's, yes you will be able to SLI them together. Please refer to it as SLI as NVLink is only on the Quadro cards.

the connector is, not the protocol or connection, its still SLI for the 2000 series cards.

yeah, but when you go shop, do you buy a connector or protocol ?

You can. They will match clocks. I run 2080 Ti SLI 2x founders editions.

Although I don't recommend it. If they look same, they look better in the case. However, if you have a good overclocker and other one is also a good OCer then go for it bud.

AFAIK there aren't any ribbon NVLink bridges so be extra careful with the PCB width because if one is for some reason bigger then you will not be able to install the bridge.

I say NVLink two of the same pair, MSI RTX 2080 Ti-MSI RTX 2080 Ti, Asus RTX 2080 Ti-Asus RTX 2080 Ti, Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti-Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti just like that another way showing Quadro RTX 8000  -  NVLink HB 4-Slot  -  Quadro RTX 8000                                 Quadro RTX 6000  -   NVLink HB 4-Slot  -  Quadro RTX 6000.           Quadro RTX 5000  -  NVLink 4-Slot  -  Quadro RTX 5000     

                                                                                                          

Something like that so the NVLink enables the two of the same pair of GPUs can communicate with each other, two Quadro GV100 needs two NVLinks

And it doesnt matter if they are not on the same clock? One is 1890mhz and the other is 1860mhz will that be an issue?

Two questions about RTX 2000 NVLink/SLI bridges:

 

1. Should I get 3-Slot or 4-slot bridge, for ASUS Zenith Extreme Motherboard?

 

2. I am assuming that GIGABYTE NVLink bridge is essentially the same as ASUS one, except for branding, am I correct?

 

Thanks for answers

all nvlinks are the same but some are designed differently for example i bought an evga nvlink and it wouldnt fit on my gigabyte cards cause it had long plastic and regarding to which size you should get well it depends on your cards and how much cooling you would want between them
