Running single card on SLI board Tags: Graphics Cards SLI Motherboards Graphics Last response: May 7, 2007 7:41 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Asjasck May 7, 2007 3:44:44 PM I'm using an Abit KN9 SLI board. If i'm not mistaken all SLI motherboards have both their PCIe slot run at x8 speed under SLI mode. The problem now is i'm running my motherboard with a single graphic card. What will be my PCIe slot speed be? Will i encounter any problems running single graphic card on a SLI-enabled motherboard?

Ask ! Get the answer desolationw May 7, 2007 6:26:03 PM All SLi motherboards which don't have 32x in the name run sli at 8x. The 32x's are dearer because they offer full speed 16x. You will be fine because i read somewhere that even the 8800GTX doesn't use all the 8x bandwidth.

Some mobo runs 8x SLi mode and the new ones runs 16x SLi but there's not much difference when it comes to performance.

Although, as others have stated, 8X vs. 16X doesn't really matter yet. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumSingle Graphics Card vs SLI setup?
