ASUS GTX980 SLI Review

3D Mark 11

3D Mark 11 utilises shaders in a similar way to modern games and so is a better representation of the performance we can hope to achieve and, surprisingly, the 980 SLI rocks up at the top of our graph. Anyone who brought a GTX690 SLI setup must be feeling pretty sick.

This might seem like a dumb question but I always thought that the SLI/X-Fire bridge had to be on the fingers closest to the I/O of a card yet in the pics you have them on the second finger or doesn't it matter? Oh and nice review BTWQuote

Nice one Guv, I think the main stand point for me was that power draw! 2 cards are only 41 Watt greater than the 290X, What!!?! That is stonking efficiency.Quote
