Does disabling SLI cut power to the second card? Tags: Nvidia SLI Power Graphics Last response: April 24, 2008 4:13 PM in Graphics & Displays Share winrot April 24, 2008 4:44:35 AM Hey folks. Quick questions. When I disable SLI in the control pannel (you know "do not use SLI technology") does the card still suck power and generate heat? how "off" can it be while disabled? Many thanks.

The card still has power but functions independently. If you are gaming with SLI off it won't use the 2nd card, but will stay powered and idle. I think Nvidia is working on a hybrid technology which will turn OFF sli'ed cards, but that is in the works. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
