3080 do not have NVLink connectors at all. There is no bridge for them. Only the 3090 has a NVLink. SLI is dead and won't be supported in the 3xxx series. For the 3090 it is for compute performance and not gaming. SLI is dead move on.Absolutely that I mean ... if I want to have 144 Hz for some games I need more than 1 card. NVLink can be used for old DX11 applications and some DX12. I am not sure about DX12 Ultimate.
Yes, you right for most of 3d shooters with little tweak should be ok. But it was the same with RTX2080ti too. When we will have a complete card that no need adjustment for it ?
Guys, why do not want to see my point here ? AMD Crossfire have a special SLI NV or whatelse is the name Link ? After DX 12.1 SLI was pointless but stil is locked from gaming developers.
I am trying to save myself in that game "If you want good peformance pay more than double".
For example " The only game that supports heterogeneous DX12 mGPU is Ashes of the Singularity. All the others are homogeneous DX12 mGPU (with only two identical cards). With AMD drivers at least, you need to enable Crossfire to get them to do whatever magic they do that allows most DX12 mGPU capable games to find the linked pair of cards. You shouldn't need any bridges for DX12 mGPU (though AMD cards haven't used them in ages, at least not the gaming models). "
The future is cloud gaming and Video Cards with chiplets that is normal. How we will gaming next 2-5 years which are transmission? We still need 2 cards to get 120-144 Hz on 4K or 60Hz at 8K.never, that's the whole point of game development and hardware.. they're both meant to push each other.. otherwise there would never be a reason to upgrade.
the reality is nvidia and AMD doen't want to pay the money needed to continue supporting SLI/CFX and game developers don't want to be held responsible for making sure SLI/CFX is supported correctly so mgpu's dead.

I saw it and results for 4K 360 Frames is wonderful. Unfortunely new games will stop using multi-GPU and that is the reason that we need follow Nvidia and AMD recommendations. If you saw Radja interview ... he already told us that future is on only one GPU with very big performance. But why still is not good enogh ... why not most of the games do not have optimisation like DOOM ethernal ?See here why multi-GPU is dead and gone.
I do not undestand what is the issue with Internet speed or with next HDMI or DP ? We have a 8K 60 already and 400 Gbps switches that can be used very soon. For the cloud gaming it should be only a browser sharing which is 1-3 Mbps. Only important there is latency which Nvidia already starting to improve.
About compression Nvidia using last 5 years Neural networks with backpropagation which are doing perfect aproximation (x4 or x16 times). That mean that cards like RTX 3090 can approximate screen size like 1440 to 4320 in real time like now. That is just a first card that using full specs of that technology.

Did you watch the video? If you did you'd see that SLI is worthless, even if you don't care about money, it's still not worth it.So we are still on same boat rtx 3090 is doing 80 fps in most games 4K and 30 FPS 8K. For me I still need secound card for best experince.
In order to get 8k at 120Hz that requires 80Gbps of data. This is if its done locally - there is few if any of us that have that kind of bandwidth. While compression might help if the whole point of this discussion is to have "maximum fidelity" and high hz - cloud computing/gaming defeats this purpose. Cloud gaming will be about bringing "good enough" to the masses. It's for people that would otherwise be playing on a console or a phone, but getting to charge them all a monthly fee forever rather than a piece of hardware and games on a cycle.The future is cloud gaming and Video Cards with chiplets that is normal.

As cybereality has already stated: getting a second card will do literally nothing for 99% of games. It has to be coded for explicitly and devs don't bother. So if you feel like spending $3000 on two 3090 cards, go ahead. We're not stopping you. But you won't get any improvement.So we are still on same boat rtx 3090 is doing 80 fps in most games 4K and 30 FPS 8K. For me I still need secound card for best experince.
You can run every game to date more or less at 4k 120/144Hz. You just have to give up some level of graphical fidelity to do so. We've been over this; so we're going round and round talking about the same stuff. There currently does not exist a "no-compromise" solution. For some reason this is either too hard for you to understand or to accept. I don't really know which it is and frankly it doesn't matter.So guys I am totally agree with all that two RTX 3090 are pointless because nobody will care for 4K 120 Hz. But I want to have more games than DOOM and 2-3 more that can handle more than 120-140 FPS.
Bad thing is that secound card can be used only for crypto mining. Which is not my target but is another option.
