ASUS reveals their NVLink Bridges with RGB LED lighting

Alongside their RTX 20 series of graphics cards, Nvidia decided to bring their NVLink technology into the mainstream market, finally surpassing the bandwidth limitations of SLI, enabling multi-GPU configurations with support for resolutions beyond 4K 60FPS. 

With their Pascal-based GTX 10 series, Nvidia used two paired SLI bridges to push their SLI technology to its limit, something which has ultimately proved to be insufficient for the era of 4K HDR at high framerates, never mind future 8K displays.  

Today, NVLink bridges are only available directly from Nvidia, but that doesn’t mean that AIB-made variants are not forthcoming. ASUS has now revealed their Republic of Gamers, ROG, NVLink bridge with Aura Sync, offering 40GB/s of bandwidth between two graphics cards and support for RGB illumination.

ASUS’ ROG NVLink bridges will support either three-slot or 4-slot system configurations, offering users a solid bridge design. This means that users will need to purchase the correct size of NVLink bridge for their system, as the connection cannot be reconfigured. ASUS has confirmed that their NVLink bridges will support ROG Strix, Dual and Turbo series RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards.
