Can you use two different graphics cards at once to get more power?

Hello, i was wondering if you could use two different graphics cards at once, and combine the power of those two graphics cards?

I am currently using a GTX 560 Ti, and i am buying a GTX 760 soon. Can i have both graphics cards installed, and get better performance than with the GTX 760 alone?

    Sort of. You could dedicate the older card to physx and help some. To combine the need to be the same model and have an SLI ready mobo.
  2. ^ what JED said you could dedicate a GPU to be your PHYSX (the less powerful one) and use the 760 for your graphics.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Should you by any chance have any idea about how big a performance boost that would be, ca?
  4. Game dependent on how much it relies on physx. Sry cant be more specific.
  5. Also you will need to make sure your power supply is big enough and of good quality.
  6. It is possible and can work quite successfully. However, some programs like Premiere pro and their rendering engines don;t particularly like having two similar cards. I did a quick video showing two different ATI cards in action and the result, see here
