Quick question, I feel I'm getting conflicting information from diff reviews/sites. I thought this particular board supported dual x16 SLI mode, instead of the 2nd one dropping to x8. Anyone know/confirm? I thougth this board was diff from other 750 boards in this regard.
Dual 8x is a very good configuration too,it doesnt have alot of difference with Dual 16x and its cheaper too.
Chipests like Nvidia 750i SLI, Nvidia 650i SLI,NVIDIA 570i SLI, NVIDIA nForce4 SLI, ATI Radeon Xpress 200, Intel 975x and ONLY 2 Intel P35 boards(ASUS BLITZ FORMULA and ASUS BLITZ EXTREME) support Multi-GPU at dual 8x mode.
However,there are some expections too,for example EVGA has a 750i Motherboard(The model of it is
EVGA 750i SLI FTW)Which supports SLI at dual 16x mode unlike many 750i Motherboards which support SLI at dual 8x mode.
So yes, it has 2 PCI-E 16x which offers the same performance as 2 PCI-E 2.0 8x. And it is my understanding that this is more than plenty bandwidth for all current and reasonably foreseeable video cards to work with.
