If you want the ultimate gaming PC you want to throw as many graphics cards as you can at it, right? Well no, despite both Nvidia’s SLI and AMD’s CrossFire multi-GPU technologies potentially offering the highest gaming frame rates imaginable they’re both being increasingly sidelined. We investigate just why that might be. ► Subscribe here: https://www.youtube.com/user/PCGamesN ◄ Visit us at: https://www.pcgamesn.com/ Twitch: https://twitch.tv/pcgamesn Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PCGamesNetwork Twitter: https://twitter.com/PCGamesN

Have you ever jammed more than a single graphics card into your PC?

I had 2 770's until about a week ago when one died on me. Was about 2-3 years of use, had quite a positive impression of the tech. I remember when Far Cry 3 was recent and on one card i could do ultra 1080 at 30, but with both it was at 60. There have been a lot of instances where games just didn't support it or, even worse, had negative scaling. It was still enough to give me a huge boost in games that did bother to support it, it's just a shame that not everyone can justify the time to implement it. Hopefully DX12 can change that.

short answer is yes, long answer is sure, yes, for a long time

What about the potential of dedicated GPU as physx processor? Will it bring any different to performance. Me myself considering to put my old GTX 660 on 2nd PCIe slot beside my 6GB 1060 as dedicated physx card, but it is worth the power /perf ratio?

i've experienced double the fps on some games, and on some barely 30%. it really depends on the title. But there will always be gains.

bpcgos Haven't actually done any testing, but our feeling is that it's unlikely to really give you much in the way of a performance boost.

The whole point of SLI and Crossfire is that it looks cool af.
